Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible):
I’ve had problems with the 3D printer creating strings and loops. Twice it crashed while printing. These are small, relatively simple designs with 0.3 draft or 0.2 speed settings. I’ve loaded the filament several times.

Has this been resolved yet?

Yes. Someone cleaned the nozzle (I think) with a can of compressed air.
