Extruder skipping

Post by kerog »

I'm having trouble tensioning the extruder properly with my Felix 3.0. Seems like no matter what I do, it skips. Lower extrusion speeds seem to have less problems. It's odd, because I think I had it good for quite a while, but now can't seem to get it right. Could it be that the characteristics of my PLA have changed due to moisture absorption, and that is affecting the extrusion?

If you hear skipping, does that mean too tight or too loose? Interested in hearing peoples' experiences.

Is there a mod I can make to get a better tensioning mechanism than the crinkled washer stack?

Thanks,

Keith
