This has been the most frustrating 24 hours OF MY LIFE!!!
Ugh this stuff is a bugger. So I got three belts to print yesterday without real issue other than a crappy finished product that fell apart. I redid the model and it printed in a whole different way than the gcode I made from the Thing files did. His file made gcode that printed a bunch of little elements and then bound them together. My file printed the inside perimeter, then the outside and then the infill. WAY WAY WAY stronger finished piece.
However I can’t seem to get more than 1.6mm off the buildplate before I start air printing. WTH? And no clicking to speak of. Well, it was clicking this morning but I caught it every time. Since then though - no extruder clicks. When I pull the filament there is a single curl in it like it corkscrewed in the throat. Not a clog at the nozzle. It seems to jam at this bit in the throat.
As I said, this stuff ran fine yesterday all the way to 13.5mm off the build plate. Why on earth won’t it get through a print today? I even put a fresh nozzle on.
I’ve tried speeds as low as 10mm/s, retract, no retract, cooling, no cooling, hot nozzle, not as hot nozzle…I’m at a loss here. Especially because it sailed through the prints of the bad model yesterday.
