filament is stuck in the feeder end

Recommended Posts

I tried the function of insert material. It seems ok when I insert PLA and the nozzle works fine. But when I started to print things, the material gets stuck and totally grounds down. I assume that is why the material fails to move forward.

I get the wire out by "move material". Here is the pic of the PLA wire:


Anybody has the same problem as me?

Hi, have you changed anything to the feeders tension?

Do you have this immediately when you start printing, or after a while into the print?

Have you tried different reels of filament? Could be there is something wrong with this specific reel of filament.
