Material doesn't extrude when loaded

Recommended Posts

Posted · Material doesn't extrude when loaded

I'm using PTEG and its been fine for the last few weeks but today its just been plain akward!


The printer kept saying there was no material on spool 1 (there was). Found what I thoght was the issue, the filament got all knarled & chewed up in the feed grip. Removed the offending section, reloaded the spool and nothing. The filament loads up to the core and that's it, the extrusion doesnt happen the printer evetually loses patience & says it finished & puts the print head away.


Any clues anyone?
