So I was printing a rather large build on my mini the other day, but when I went to pull it off it really didn’t want to come off the plate. I went back later to get the excess off, only to realize that the filament wasn’t on the build plate, it was embedded in it! Going back it looks like when it went to level the extruder, there must have been some excess filament on the tip, meaning that it went too low when it was printing. So, I’m down one build plate but I’m wondering if anyone has any advice how to avoid this in the future.
Also, if it’s any help, I had been having a problem with filament oozing out of the hot end when I started up my printer for a while and had to keep wiping it away (and even then it would gum up the hot end and throw off my builds).
So…any helpful advice from non-idiots out there?
