Material feeder makes loud squeaky noise

Recommended Posts

What fingerpuk said. I recommend putting the filament on the floor. This rubbing causes problems and slowly grinds up the black ABS plastic that the feeder is made out of and that ABS plastic gets dragged eventually into the nozzle where it causes serious problems in the nozzle such as blockages or reduced ability to extrude.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
