Extrusion issues on S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Extrusion issues on S5

Hi everyone, I am having an issue with extrusion on my S5. Currently have AA 0.4 with PLA and BB 0.4 PVA. I either have the issue that the material is practically spilling out from one print core when the other head is printing. Also, then when the head switches it to print it gets rid of the blob  on the nozzle and then there is virtually no extrusion (some small dots now and again but barely anything). Any suggestions?

    Could you post your settings you are using as that really helps to see what might be going on.


    But a few things to check mostly with PVA is to check its dry and you will get problems with it (it's why i have started to use breakaway now) Also clean the nozzle that's getting extrusion problems.


    Filament spilling out of the core not in use could be your stand by temp setting or retraction settings.
