That happens sometimes, and could be due to a partially higher water content in the filament, I suppose.

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
