extrusion problems after 3 layers
July 03, 2017 08:26AM
Im using a MK8 extruder on my machine and lately i've been trying to get the settings right form it (currently i've 0.4 nozzle and 130 steps/mm at 215degrees) and when i start the print i usually get the first 3 layers done relatively okay, however since layer 4 it starts extruding really slowly (in such a way that the etxruded plastic is as thin as a hair, almost as if the extruder stopped turning at all, after some time there is no more plastic coming out.

does anybody know how to deal with this?

Layer heigth? Cheap filament? 215 deg is too high for PLA and too low for ABS. What are you printing? E stepper missing steps? Grinding filament?
