Re: UP Box stops extruding during print

you are having difficulty with a particular stl or all prints suffer the same problem? If it is a specific model, we can try print that and find out what happens. Thanks for the offer Jason but my agent has already tested some STL files that I sent him. There was one file that gave me loads of issu...

Re: UP Box stops extruding during print

I've actually returned the machine to my local agent and they cannot figure out what the issue is. They have replaced a few components but it's still not performing reliably. I've been using a replacement machine in the meantime that also broke so I'm currently hating this machine. I'm going to rece...

Re: UP Box stops extruding during print

When it fails does it eat a chunk of the filament? Yes, the drive gear eats into the filament. I always clean the gear after a fail and re-adjust the nozzle height. In my experience, this normally happens if the filament gets to hot, the nozzle is dirty or blocked, the nozzle is too close and back ...

Re: UP Box stops extruding during print

Have you tried swapping the nozzle? There may be a small buildup in there that lets the filament through for a while but then blocks, withdrawing and reextruding may not fully clean it. Change the nozzle and soak the other one in acetone for a day to clean it. Thanks for your response. I have fitte...

Re: UP Box stops extruding during print

Thanks for the response. I'm printing with the UP ABS+ filament so the diameter should be correct. As I said it's stops at the same layer on parts so it's probably not related to filament diameter. I actually got the best results on 2.13 (I've tried all the versions) and realized that there is no AB...

UP Box stops extruding during print

Hi Everyone, I've been battling with this problem since I got my machine. I would be busy with a print and then it stops extruding but the machine still continues with the print. I'm using ABS+ and I've got it on the ABS+ setting in 2.18. The nozzle height is correct and I've adjusted it manually. I...
