Extrusion problems


Recommended Posts

Posted · Extrusion problems

We recently got a new print head and it was working fine for the first couple prints, but now while trying to print a small project material wasn't coming out of the printer or was coming out thinner than normal. I unloaded the material and loaded it back in and it came out normal for just a few second, but then went back to practically nothing. Any ideas? the printer isn't even a year old.

    Try another print core if you have one left. If not or if it is working with an other print core, you nozzle is probably clogged and needs some cleaning. Check out the instructions on the UM website how to clean your print core or follow the instructions from the printer menu.
