Re: Taulman 618-1.75mm Co-Polymer

I have bought the package from octave.
I have been testing nylon 618, working well but suddenly the extruder didn't want to extrude anymore.
Unglogged it an it just prints around 10 layers and it stops extruding again. Any hint?

I have the settings
0.2 layer height fine
236°C
Up mini
