UM2 extrusion always stops

Recommended Posts

at first some prints starts well and then in the mid within one layer no extrusion anymore and the feeder is grinding in the material.

so i disassembled the feeder, cleaned it, tried a small print with no problems, but with a longer print extrusion stops.

so i disassembled the hot-end, and saw that the coupler was deformed (with only 250hrs on it, the last one was over 600hrs).

the nozzle was clean, so i put a new coupler in and started printing.

at hour 11 from a 12hrs print it happened again no extrusion anymore.

The feeder is just grinding and little to nothing comes out.

When doing an atomic method and push the material through i get a nice strand, but that does not help.

    • "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.
