Having issue an extruder on our printer, it has never worked correctly. The symptoms seem to point to a problem within the extruder, but am not sure. I can load and unload the extruder without any difficulty, when I start a print the filament extrudes just fine for the first 5 to 10 minutes and then just quits. The printer still thinks it's laying filament down, but it's not.
When loading the extruder, the filament comes out of the extruder just fine, no issues. I don't see any kind of bubbling or bunching up of material at the extruder when it starts. The temperature is set to 205C. (I have experimented with increasing the temperature to see if it was a calibration issue, same thing happens). I've also tried tightening and loosening the gears within the extruder via the thumb screws. The left extruder works just fine, and am able to print with the same filament the right extruder fails with.
I can see the gears moving in the right extruder, but for some reason, after a set amount of time, it stops extruding.
Any ideas that I can try here? Welcome any support, thanks for reading.
@pverdin This is likely happening due to curling which is why it happens once the overhang begins. I personally find success when I print PETG around 260c hotend and 75c on the bed with 100% cooing to prevent curling.
M: I just got a Creality CR-5 Pro, but it doesn't appear on the list of models in the MattterHackers SW. I cannot get it to connect with the SW. Can you tell me if there is another listed model that might enable the CR-5/Ender 5 connection?
This was originally brought to me by another member. I have dialed it in to being a 10% global over extrusion. From there I use 5% less extrusion on the first layer. This is not noticeable until I began to make very small engineering grade parts. I suspect that the calibration for material size and density needs to be corrected.
