Ultimaker Original+ Extrusion Issue: Wheel not Turning

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Original+ Extrusion Issue: Wheel not Turning

Hi-

I put together my UMO+ last week, and I got a few good prints from it. Then, I changed the filament color and the big wooden "extrude" wheel isn't turning, I made the flowrate 150%, and the wheel is now turning very, very slowly with major underextrusion. I ran the printer without the wheel, and found the little black gear is turning just fine. Also- my kit shipped with one less washer and the Delrin clip broke. So, right now my printer is running with one washer and no clip. The knurled nut is far enough so that a portion of the depressed part of the nut is sticking out? Have any of you experienced this?

Thanks-

Caleb

Often, in cura, people accidentally change "flow" to "1". Which is 1%. You want it to be 100.
