Filament not extruding


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament not extruding

Hi everyone I just began trying to use my office's Ultimaker 2+ extended. When printing from the SD card I have not run into any issues, but when I try to print via USB I am having issues. The extruder is following the correct path to print, however the material is not coming out. Has anyone else had this issue and found a way to fix it?

    It could be and this is just guessing, that the filament was retracted too much from a previous print and now needs some layers to get back to the nozzle. This happens often when you change to Marlin with the code flavour and then you have to edit the start code to prime a little bit more filament, that the material is in the nozzle when the print starts.
