    Need help with my printer, Its not "welding" the plastic

    Hi
    I recently got an Ender 3 V2, it was working fine untill one day,
    I seems like wont melt the plastic properly. Ive tried to reset my slicer settings inn Cura, changing temperature on the hotend. Im new to 3D printing so I really dont know what to do from here.
    Ive added a few pics. its supposed to be a nut with threads. Maybe not the best pics, but you can see it there.
    If anyone can help me or know a video or a link to a page that can help me that would be great.

    Thank you!

    Start with giving us more information.
    Post your Cura slicer settings.

    In fact If you have an Ender 3 you should be using Prusaslicer also and you could attach a .3mf project file for us to look at.

    I had a similar problem a while back that I could not figure out. My prints were just falling apart - like the plastic wasn't getting hot enough. Someone on here mentioned the thermistor. I had to do some research to find out what that was and how to check it. Mine had slipped out of it's hole when I was changing the nozzle. Fixed that and it has worked fine since.
