My Newest Toy...

I have got a shiny new toy - and cannot get it to work!!! 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑

From I started unpacking I have been working on that blasted thing for about five hours - half of the time trying to figure out why it stops extruding filament after the first few layers, and trying different settings to mend it, without any results to show other than some thin stands of PLA...

I am deeply frustrated... 😫

  1. Have you tried multiple files? Try slicing some new test files? Just wondering if it is the file you are trying to print is corrupt.

    1. Yes, I've tried different files. I suspect the gear feeding the filament into the bowden tube/nozzle is not tight enough, but I got some detailed settings from a friend yesterday that I am going to try out today.
