    Filament jamming?

    I've got an older replicator 2 and newer plastic from makerbot. After a while into the print the filament jams and the extruder starts making the knocking/clicking noise. I have measured the filament diameter, which is around 1.83mm (totaly not 1.77, makerbot store you lie). Almost all of the newer rolls we have are around 1.8-1.9. Changing the filament diameter helped but the extruder still jams part way through.
    Also the prints have a gap at the start of each layer, creating a what looks like a seam up the side of the print ( which can be seen on the side of the thumb on the hand, and down the chest of the rabbits) I am hoping they are part of the same problum

    What temp are you printing at? It almost looks like it's too hot, but if it's jamming it's hard to say. Could be the spool is tangled too - Is it hard to pull through the tube when loading the filament?
