Filament skipping while printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament skipping while printing

My filament was skipping while i was printing. Driving me nuts trying to figure out why. Lots of people here had great ideas of why but it was not helping me out. I found the problem....I had accidentally changed the filament size to 2.85 instead of the 1.75 that it needed to be. The program (cura) was doing the right thing, telling the extruder to  push out the right amount for the size of the filament. But that was not right for the size of filament I was using.

Works great now

Glad it's working well now. Definitely important to use the right size material for your machines with the right diameter settings.
