    I’ve been printing for a few more days and used up my first roll of PLA(1KG) I’m not sure if you remember about me saying about my extruder clicking while printing. That start to happen when I was at half roll. I’ve double check me bed to make sure its level and it is. I’ve make sure its not too close to the bed too till the point the print is not that good but it still cliks. So I’ve just set the extruder at 100mm Z height and just extrude 100mm in the air and it still random clicks.
    Have pull aprat the hotend and tip checked and clear them. Done more print on the new roll it still clicks… when it clicks no PLa come out so the print has gaps at random places.

    I’ve looked around on the net but have not found anyone with the same problem. You will have some ideas? since we have the same machine Just to see if you come across this problm before? Any help will be great.

    by you mean click the drive can’t push filament in? check the diameter of the filament on random spot :)

    Yes thats right it can’t push filament in. I was thinking this could be my problem after I read about what you found. So this is what its doing if the size is wrong in random spot? Do I need to buy a new roll to fix this? I’ll check the diameter of the filament when I’m back in the office.(thats where I keep the printer)

    unfortunately yes if you keep using it you might end up breaking your hotend plus the jerking is annoying as it also lead to not enough plastic extruded making the printed object ruined

    Checking on random spot of the filament 1.85 on the high side 1.58 on the low side. Got to run the hotend up to 215 for it to flow nice with out stop, but the print is still not as good as it used to be. I think its time for a new roll:(
