been having horrible days with my cyclops, its jamming on PLA if there is any retraction at all, regardless how much its retracting, it will jam, the less I retract, the more times it can retract before jamming, sometimes it jams even with no retraction, the PLA I have is rated 190c to 210c, printing in with in those temp will jam even with no retraction, only way to get it print further now is at 230c, but it seems to jam at some point so couldn't print anything large, the strange part, I can print PETG no problem, even at 4mm retraction, no jam, switching between 2 color no priblem as long as they are both PETG, just not PLA....

anyone any suggestions?

this is weird, I print this very same thing vertical and works, lay it down flat to print, it jams

You have a fan blowing on the heatsink? I played around with a chimera and cyclops clone and they both came without fan, so...
