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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
