Davinci pro 1.0 not extruding

Wed Jul 15, 2020 6:39 pm

I have just downloaded the latest copy of Simplify3d (yesterday) and followed the getting started guide for my printer. I am using PETG filiment and copied the temp settings from my XYZ Print software. When I go to print the filiment is not being extruded. The print head is moving, etc.

I had a similar issue with mine when using PLA but not ABS. If this is the case for you, then it may be that the heat is rising from the hot end into the gears causing the gears to heat up too much, thus slightly melting the plastic causing it to not be gripped by the gears to pull it through to the hot end.
