In advance, thank you anyone for your help. I am working with a Taz 5 single extruder for my company and have been having issues with repeated filament grinding where the motored gear feeds the filament. I’ve included pictures of the taz 5 unit, the extruder body, the filament after issue occurs, the Cura “Lulzbot Edition” settings, and the part we are attempting to print. During trial and error, I noticed that the bearing (used to apply pressure to the filament so that the gear can feed the filament) does not move. Online I read that if the filament in the feeding section becomes too hot than it is likely cause an issue similar to what I am having. I mention this because I think that friction from the idle bearing may be causing the filament to heat up to this temperature. This seems a bit extreme to me so I’d like any advice I can get.
Yes, the nozzle stays at a roughly uniform temperature during the entire process.
Thank you All
