  1. I would also suggest grabbing a brand new roll of filament...fresh out of the package, It will make trouble shooting easier. And try a simple test cube.. With my enclosure..i have only seen problems with some low temp filaments like Ninjaflex or T-glase. I have a thermometer on the top of my enclosure and it usually runs about 90deg F any higher for PLA and i pop open the top and front door. Maybe try a print with the doors open, just as a test.

  3. I have had a terrible time printing ABS so I decided to go for an enclosure. The door was pretty straight forward.

I used about $10 worth of coroplast sheet and printed these corners https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2825407 I designed some pivots so I could peek under lid. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3023029 I added a cheap thermometer to the front to
  4. I had the same thing happen on my U2+ on an overnight print. The PLA all backed up into the extruder body. I removed the screws that i could and used a small heat gun to soften the plastic, then patiently snipped and pull away the material. I also ran my extruder up to temperature to help release it from the inside. A pair of side cutters, needle nosed pliers and pokey tools will help. be patient. I got it all out. Only to do the same thing a month later. Kevin
  5. I ended up making my own out of coreplast and 3d printed parts https://photos.app.goo.gl/TGYpMZGjH2ULgXjF9 It has a side mounted pivot hinge now too for easy tilting.
