print doesnt stick to the plate / under extrusion ? UMO

Recommended Posts

I fixed the first problem (hurrah) onwards to the next problem.

I am using 3mm PLA and only a stream om 1mm comes out and a very little stream.

I think my extruder is not 'pushing' the material in ? I dont know how to fix this.

As a result the fillament does not stick to the plate (I think)

Ive tried some different heats and speeds (Im using the blue tape) but still nothing

any advice ?

Should I clean the nozzle maybe ? I would like to rule out other options first before I have to take apart the machine..

Thanks for any 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.
