Under Extrusion? What the Heck

by roepke414

So I have a maker select v2 with a micro swiss nozzle brand new. My bed is level beyond belief. Extruder gear is clean as heck. Filament is old(PLA). PID tune was already done by myself set at 220 I print the first few layers at 220 then to 215 we go.

When it performs its wipe it like dribbles out into like little dots then it forms a solid line. It does this when creating the perimeter too. It under extrudes a bunch super randomly. No idea why.

I have the stock cooler. I have the Y axis bracing. I slice in Slic3r. All prints done at .2mm layer height.

I provided pictures of the benchy and a random cube I made for testing. I tried the prints with my fan on 100% of the time. Today I am going to open a new pack of filament (PLA) and give it the beans.

Printer Dead

by DashMo

Hi everyone. I'm sure someone has had this problem before but it is difficult to find in all of these posts. Last night, my printer stopped mid-print. The fan continues to run when i power on the printer but the control box LCD doesn't work and there are no beeping sounds when I turn the dial. Any ideas what could be wrong before I take this thing apart? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a dual cooling duct for 2x Blower fans for my Printer.
There are plenty for other brands than Wanhao Duplicator I3/Knockoffs but none for our.
Anyone got one ?
