Trouble with the feeder


Recommended Posts

Posted · Trouble with the feeder

Hello everyone,

Im having trouble with the feeder of my ultimaker original. He is fully functional but it seems like the feeder doesn't have enough grip to push the filament through.. with how much power is it supposed to push the pla? And where can I change something to help it? I can press the pla manually through but I have to use a lot of force...

I hope someone can help me:)

Cheers, Thijs
