Question #: 814

Question: 3d printer filament is not feeding. It is heating and will melt and feed some but not consistently. Any tips on adjusting the set screw to get a good feed? I'm using PLA with the MK7 stepstruder being sold on the site.

Current Solution

This may be less of an issue of the grasp that the feeder has on the filament and more an issue of the heat getting to the plastic at the hot end, or having enough heat at the hot end. Try increasing the temperature and try again. If that doesn't work, make sure you are insulating the hot end sufficiently to keep the hot end hot enough to keep the plastic melted.
