New M3d stops extruding after a few layers

Postby RapsFan » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:08 pm

Hi everyone. Just got an M3D. I did 1 successful print but now the printer extrudes only the first few layers then just goes through the motions and nothing comes out. Small models (approx 1 inch X 1 inch) print OK. I took the print head cover off made sure there's no jam. What else can it be?

The attached files show what it still look like, and what i really got.

Ok, make sure you calibrate the printer head. Then make sure you are checking off Raft, and supports. What are you printing exactly? Can you add a picture?
