Is the hot end set to the correct temperature for the filament you're using?

g.


Yes - 220 degrees - using PLA from SeeMeCNC

I'm sure there is a way to resolve this but I'm stumped

Thank you

Re: ERIS - Clicking Sound, No Filament Coming Out, Unload Doesn't Work :(

When I load the filament you can see the filament going from ~1 inch beyond the EZR Struder to inside the hot end . . . then the clicking sound at the EZR Struder . . . and no melted filament comes out of the hot end - nothing, not even a tiny bit I checked the connector at the hot end - seems good,...

Re: ERIS - Clicking Sound, No Filament Coming Out, Unload Doesn't Work :(

Maybe I should take up another hobby . . . having the patience and understanding required to make these machines work well doesn't come naturally for me . . .

But I do appreciate the help and suggestions

Re: ERIS - Clicking Sound, No Filament Coming Out, Unload Doesn't Work :(

Thank you geneb & Mac The Knife!

I will make an effort to do this and get this thing up and running - when it works, it really does a great job

I realize the ERIS has been discontinued however, is there any possibility of obtaining an ERIS build document?

Thanks again!

I realize this is not SeeMeCNC's fault but the USPS Priority Mail shipment of my new hotend was supposed to be delivered on Thursday - now for some reason it's in a USPS facility 55 miles away with no mention of when it will be delivered - none :( I've experienced two similar (but not this bad) expe...

The current and new hotend are from SeeMeCNC for the ERIS so I hope it goes well

It would be nice to have a document to guide through the process - maybe I'll make one

Thank you
