  • I’m having problems with my extruded. My bed is level however my extruder keeps jamming I’m going to play with speed and tempAture tonight. I hope it helps. I also have an issue with the pla clinging to the extruder nozel.

    • Sorry for the slow response to your comment. Make sure that your nozzle is not pressed too firmly against the print surface for the first layer, this will make it difficult for the PLA to push out of the nozzle and cause filament to jam. When I start the printer for the day I usually manually adjust the Z axis (up/down) by turning the stepper motors while it’s printing so that I get a nice thick squished bead of plastic on the first layer. If it’s too low you will barely be able to see plastic being extruded.
