Extruder not extruding during print, please help!

Recommended Posts

I currently have a RepRap Guru Prusa i3 and my printer will not extrude any filament during a print. This problem occurred right after a print where I ran out of filament during a print and so, filament was left in the nozzle and neck heated for a few hours.

I have replaced my .4 mm nozzle for the printer, a new extruder feeder with a new gear for the stepper motor, I reinstalled the marlin firmware on the arduino, and upgraded to cura 2.6.2, I installed a new stepper motor driver for the extruder stepper and adjusted the potentiometer voltage to about .6 volts, a new heater block and neck, and a new ramps 1.4 board. Unfortunately, I am still having the same issue.

The bed is leveled correctly with a glue-stick for adhesion.

I currently am printing with Hatchbox PLA with an initial layer of 190 then after that, it goes down to 185.

I have tried printing at 220 and I still am having the same issue.

Here is what my prints are looking like: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3sRhX28evz6aHZPT3Z0T1Atems/view?usp=sharing

I have read other forums and other research for help and nothing has helped yet.

If you have any questions, please ask. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

    • "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.
