It would be very helpful if MH would populate their filaments each time there was an update to MC.

Stepper motors heating up
I have run into a problem with my prints completing. After the first 10-20 layers, the printer (Pulse XE) continues to move on every axis, however, it is not extruding any filament.
The first time it happened, I tried to manually extrude but it wouldn't. After I was able to get the filament out of the Bowden, I noticed the pinch marks in the filament which seemed normal, but about every 100 mm there were flat spots on opposing sides of the filament.
I tried it again and stayed with the printer, and when I noticed that it wasn't extruding I paused the print. I reached in to check the tensioner, and happened to touch the stepper which was extremely hot. I felt the Y axis stepper, and it was just as hot. I could only keep my finger on it seconds hot!
I've only done a small amount of research on this, and thought that I would ask here before tearing into it. Is it possibly a setting? Also, this printer was purchased in March of this year, and has maybe 72 hours of print time on it.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
