Extruder nib

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble with the extrusion carriage not clearing the print and balling up the print extrustion. I'm wondering if it is possible that the nib is not clearing the carriage enough though I have no idea how far below it, it is supposed to extend.

Please see photoIMG_9845.jpg

Thank you in advance.

Are you talking about how the bottom layer isn't sticking to the glass but instead ending up no the nozzle? If so you need to move the glass closer to the nozzle. You can verify this by pushing up on the glass while printing the bottom layer.

The quick fix is to just rotate the 3 bed leveling screws CCW to move the glass up closer to the nozzle. Or relevel but level with no paper so that the nozzle is touching the glass. Also heat the nozzle and clean the tip before leveling.

    • "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.
