I have a pretty new Taz 6 and I’m having problems with the filament feed. The last four prints, at some point the filament won’t feed through the extruder properly and will instead just get chewed up by the toothed wheel meant to move it along. At first I thought the issue might be too much resistance going through the stock feeder tube, so I moved the filament spool on top of the printer with a dowel balanced across the top. It seems like there is not much resistance in this configuration, and yet, it still failed at some point towards the end of the print (about an hour in). I’ve tried tightening the screws that clamp it in there, but to no avail.
I’m getting tired of wasting time and filament on failed prints. Any suggestions for me?
