Mushrooming between coupler and hotend.

Recommended Posts


So this all started when my stepper started to skip and my printer was not extruding enough filament to fill the layers. so I took the hotend assembly apart and did some tests and found that the filament was mushrooming inside the coupler or somewhere between the coupler and the nozzel. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this or any other ideas of why this is happening?




100% fan

70-100% flow (I also tried messing with the flow rate but nothing helped)

If anyone could help that would be great, I need to print things for a fundraiser so I need it running. Thank you!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
