Need help with Ultimaker 3

Recommended Posts

It looks like that no filament is extruded, because when printing in the air you would have a lot of loose filament in the printer.

 

Check if filament feeder is working, maybe grinded filament or clogged nozzle, or ......

If it's not working, then something is wrong. Like @Smithy said, it looks like your printer stopped extruding. If it stopped extruding, because it couldn't exit the nozzle (burnt material, etc), then it would grind at the feeder because the feeder is pushing but there's nowhere for the filament to go.

 

Can you please elaborate a little more? When you removed the filament from the feeder, what did it look like? Do you have a picture?


Does the filament that's in the bowden tube have teeth marks on it?

If you load fresh filament, does anything extrude?

    • "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.
