Feeder Slipping please help.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted · Feeder Slipping please help.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made a couple of small prints successfully, and then tried the Bendlay which is actually 3mm wide. The feeder started slipping so I stopped and changed back to PLA. But it’s been slipping

ever since and I tried many things to fix it but nothing works.

    Is Pta a country? Please mark what country you live in - in your profile settings because this affects solutions (e.g. Ultimaker has different support centers).

    Please post a video - I'm not sure what you mean. And which printer do you have?

    Did you measure the filament diameter carefully? Was it truly 3.0mm and not 2.9mm? I'm not sure how this would be related but maybe some filament dust got in the feeder gear and you just need to blow it out with some compressed air.
