What's this?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I had to do an atomic pull this morning and ended up yanking the nozzle up a bit in the process. After managing to push it back down (not easy), I noticed this white 'gasket' around the nozzle. I don't remember seeing this before. Any thoughts on what this is?

Its printing now and seems to be going ok, although there is a rhythmic ticking from somewhere inside the build chamber...

It's there to help stop any plastic buildup going up inside the fan shroud.so don't worry it was there all the time.

Are you printing with spiralize turned on. This gives a rhythmic tick.
