Ult 2 stops extruding randomly

Recommended Posts

On pretty much every single print I have done lately on the Ultimaker 2 it stops extruding fairly far into the print. When I look at the filament in the extruder, I can see a huge indent in the filament and the knurled gear is completely covered in plastic shavings. Before the print starts, it extrudes perfectly. And until it stops extruding, the print is perfect. I am using this modified extruder, and has improved, but its still not fixed.

I am also using 1.75mm PLA. I set the filament diameter to 1.75, so I don't think that is the problem. I am printing at 210 C. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

    • "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.
