Extruder Grinding filament when it shouldn't be


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Extruder Grinding filament when it shouldn't be

So I used to have this problem and fixed it before, and now it has returned full force and full of shredded filament.


I was printing a raft for a part I was making and after the first layer went down (suspiciously well) the second layer was started and the extruder immediately started to shred the filament.


The bed is level (just checked it) and if anything is a little bit too far off. The nozzle temp is well within the melting range of the filament and the extruder seems to be in good condition (good enough to shred so it should be able to push).


I don't have any idea what is going on with this printer. Its been driving me absolutely crazy.
