Has anyone else had issues lately with loading filament into the 3D printer?
Everytime that I have tried it makes a gear/clicking sound but never successfully loads the filament, even though it feels like the gears grip it (similar to this thread: Prusa 3D printer unhappy about loading filament). I worked with Carl last week to use the acupuncture needle to clear the nozzle and it worked fine after but it was finicky again today. I just want to know if it might be something with my loading technique/filament choice or something other people are experiencing
It could be the PTFE tube that’s inside the hot end. They degrade after awhile and the inner diameter shrinks. I have some that worked on my old printers it’s probably the same size. Either that or some other restriction in the filament path.
