Thank you! It's just unfortunate that I had to join because of problems instead of pure printing joy.
I uploaded the picture the way you said in the first post, and added another one that hopefully gives some more insight into the problem. It has small holes, zits and stringing in the support structure and infill, but none or very little on the objects (if they get finished).
I've realized that the tension between the knurled wheen and the filament is a bit too high, the teeth marks in the filament seems too deep. I've mucked around with the tension quite a bit before, both lowered and hightened it, but it didn't make much difference either way. The white marker on the side of the motor is at the top though, so I thought it was fine. Should I lower the tension?
This is the piece of filament removed after the print in the pictures failed, the knurled wheel has ground in the filament quite a bit. I brushed out the filament dust from the feeder motor as well as it was possible without disassembly.
The sound at startup seems to be too faint for my camera to pick it up, I made another recording of just the sound. It's quite hard to catch, you'll probably need to turn the volume up a bit. The first click is the printer being switched on, then you hear the little screaming sound for a few seconds (at the same time as the screen flickers).
I hope it could just be a loose cable somewhere?
Thank you for the help!Edited by Guest
Welcome to the community.
You have some known problems for sure, but first, you'll need to upload your picture using the second icon from right. This will give us a better quality of the print. Also the video have a very lo volume, so it is difficult to analyze the "kind of" sound that's occur when switching on the printer.
For sure you have some under extrusion, can you see any wear/chafing on the filament at the point it stopped feeding?
