filament flattened

Recommended Posts

Posted · filament flattened

Hi guys.

Having problems with filament getting flattened when I'm printing something heavy on retraction. The filament gets so flat that it wont pass through the feeder. I have adjusted the spring tension but can't get it to stop doing this. Any help on this will be great.

What feeder are you using? The stock feeders lightest setting is pretty tight. If you're a hands on kinda guy, you can try printing your own feeder and going lighter on the spring tension. Helped for me anyways.

I changed the feeder due to this issue. I'm now using the Irobertl v2 feeder. I find if the tension is too light the filament will grind rather then flatten.
