Splicing is erratic - some work but then complete failure
Hi - I’m just trying to reprint the keychain as I have had problems recently and I have discovered a problem. One of the splices (not the first one which seems to work consistently) will fail during the print. From my observations the splice fails when:
- first filament is chopped
- second filament is extruded but goes past the sensor below the cutter and is rewound
- Second filament is then moved into position as normal but the splice fails. It looks as if the two filaments were not butted against each other in the splice core - both filaments have rounded ends from heating but were not pressed against each other
Any idea what I should do to resolve this?
I have printed several items in the past using the same filaments without issue.
Is this a good question?
