Skirt not printing

Postby kireas » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:31 pm

Hi all, I just switch to Ideamaker recently and have been getting pretty decent results from it, however I am facing a problem. As mentioned in the title, the first few rounds of the skirt isn't printing. I only see the plastic after the 3rd loop. I've messed around with retraction settings to no avail. Can anyone help?

Does the nozzle purge before printing starts extrude filament out properly or not?
Any picture of gcode preview and real printing result can be shared here?

When the print starts, is the extruder gear rotating and feeding filament? Can you see or feel that the filament is going in? Do you by any chance pull back the filament after each print (like touch the extruder arrows on the touch panel).
