Anet A8 bad/inconsistant extrusion after changing nozzle

Recommended Posts

I just changed my nozzle on my Anet A8 after it was fully used up. When I started printing with my new 0.4mm nozzle (same as before) my extrusion was VERY bad and inconsistant, even so bad I couldn't continue printing because it would pull the first layer off.

 

If I compare it to my extrusion before the nozzle switch, it is really bad, even though I tightened everything as before. I am quite sure it doesn't have to do with adhesion to the heated bed since I use tape with pva glue.

 

Any advice on how to remove this under extrusion so I can continue printing?

 

All the specs:

  • 25mm/s first layer print speed
  • 200C nozzle
  • 60C bed
  • PLA materia;
  • 0.4mm nozzle size

 

Let me know if there is anything else you need to know.
