Just looks like a failed print.

If you do the level bed procedure but make it so the bed has a big gap between it and the nozzle then load in a large print and turn retraction off you will end up with something like that. Maybe you could also increase the flow and have a large layer height to stop it from correcting itself.

Thanks for the reply all, isn't there a way to detach the nozzle to use it as a pen (just like the 3doodler)?

Yes you can unclip the x / y axis rods from the black holders that connect the axis rod to the belts, just rotate them till the unclip. Then the whole head comes off. You can slide the rods out and hold the head in your hand.

You can the go in the menu and select move material and rotate the dial to extrude filament.

many thnx, just figured out how to move material. Any way to move material without having to rotate the dial by any chance?

-maybe change filament, and when it extrudes the material just let it flow for a while?
