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

    • "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.
