The initial month or two, the prints have been fantastic with no extra effort to get them working. However, over the last week I haven’t been able to get a successful print. This print failure seems to be because the primary extruder fails to feed.
I observed this during one of the early layers on a really long print where the extruded nGen filament began to “sputter” instead of printing a solid line. So while it was still printing I released the filament from the extruder and pulled out the filament. A portion of the filament appeared to be carved out. After trimming the damage portion, I re-inserted it into the extruder assembly and it was printing fine. This morning it looks like a similar problem had happened.
I’m printing nGen with the standard settings with the nozzle at 230C bed at 85C which has always worked before.
Under the Cool heading in the Advanced settings the fan is configured as the following:
Fan full on height 6mm
Fan speed min 40%
Fan speed max 60%
Min speed 10 mm/s
Since it’s colder outside, should I be running the filament at 5C or 10C hotter than normal?
System: Taz 6
Extruder: Dual v2.1
