Super Fine string when changing filament? Under extrusion issues as well

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Having a strange scenario whenever i change filament in a UM2

After the filament ejects there is a super fine strand of filament left in the bowden tube and still attached to the end of the 2.85mm end of the filament.

I can carefully pull on this for what seems like it is much longer then actual length of the bowden tube.

Is this an indicator of a bad coupler or other part?

Any ideas what would cause this or is this completely normal? I don't remember this happening when the printer was brand new.

The printer itself is only a couple months old now and I've only printed with PLA.

I'm also suffering from under extrusion issues.

Thanks for everyone's time it's greatly appreciated!

-Mike

    • "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.
