    An that's why I use printbite :-)

    Is it exceptionally hard wearing and extremely difficult to mark ? yes.

    So back to Alexa for a post.
    here's the thing.
    I had a failed print !
    Yeah i was shocked.

    So figured probably time to level the printbed - haven't done it for 4 or 5 months.

    Ah - should have put a link to it :-)

    I can see four led mounts called angel eye - which one did you print ?
    lol on recount - 8 !

    reset the firmware on the machine maybe. Always worth a shot, usually a menu option to do it.

    Other than that - I guess run down the obvious: check all wires and connections, does the laser...

    Could be a blocked nozzle.
    Something in the filament got stuck partway in the nozzle.

    Looks like a metallic filament type so a random metal fleck could well cause it.

    That is a LOT of work !
    The most complicated thing I made only had about 6 components.

    you printing the tyres ?

    you don't generally retract at the corners. So, unlikely changing retraction would have any effect.

    have to admit, it's never bothered me, so never looked for some way to change it.
    I'm always...

    might need a new stepper motor.
    Pretty easy to change.

    Not sure what voltage you need though.
    It's a standard nema 17 motor. And no soldering required. Just a couple bolts and a plug....

    looks good - but why the low poly stl ?
    I know it doesn't make any practical difference - just looks better with more roundness :-)

    the only filament that offers any difficulty is nylon.

    And the only nylon filament that doesn't offer any difficulties is MyMat nylon from spain. Amazing stuff, no warp, doesn't need heated bed...

    sounds like maybe the heater cartridge might be on the way out.
    Do the temperatures look okey when it's jamming ?

    Ah - looking at your picture, the filament is not feeding into the hotend. It's...

    what printer do you have ?
    Looks like the build plate or the axies (axis's ?) are not 100% level.

    Also have you tried using pva (cheap gluestick) instead of blue tape ?

    never had this - so thinking maybe slicer related.
    That said not yet used an i3 clone, so maybe related to cheapo build quality ?

    Probably the nozzle is too close to the bed.
    Increase the gap by 5 100ths of a mm at a time, till the bubbling goes away.

    The natural inclination is to go the other way and assume the nozzle is...

    what type of plastic ?
    Most common filaments should NOT be made wet as they will absorb water which makes them more brittle and reduces layer adhesion.

    Sounds like you either need to extrude...

    well the first thing has nothing to do with the printer design.
    Nylon ? really ?
    Didn't peg you as a masochist :-)

    So the most important thing you'll need is a good actively heated print...

    No idea - I would think both would be equally good.

    I haven't tried my new sheet yet. But have a flashforge creator that's had it for coming up for 2 years and my k200 delta.

    yeah temp way to high. I tend to go for 200-215.
    It will vary with machine and environment.
