No Extrusion at all

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Iam having a problem with my ultimaker original, no material is coming out of either of the extruders at all.

 

  • Both the extruder wheels are turning and I have seen bite marks on the PLA.
  • Both the extruders are getting up to temp
  • The bed is level
  • Both extruders are level

 

Does mean that something is assembled wrong in the hot ends? Do you have tips on what to look for?

Update: I did get a bit of plastic out of extruder one but that is all. It wasn't enough to print it and now there is none again

is there a nice strand of plastic coming out if you turn the extruder wheel by hand before starting a print?

if not: than you have a blockage somewhere. You can try to poke in the nozzle with a thin strand of metal wire (from a metal brush). If that doesn't help the problem could be higher up.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
