    Printing problem

    My prints start out okay and print about 3mm of the print, then the extruder moves up about 1cm and then just try’s to print in mid air following the print pattern.
    Any idaes?

    Does the z axis actually jump up or is it moving without any filament coming out, then start flowing again? If the flow stops, monitor your temp of the extruder to make sure you are maintaining temp and it is not cooling mid-print. Check wire connections to make sure you dont have a loose wire on extruder or heater. If the z axis is taking a jump then it could be your software or hardware. You could review the g-code to see if you can see the jump in the code. Try printing from SD card instead of directly from computer. Does it do this on all prints or just specific object?
