the feed gear shredded and tore my filament

Postby Jab136 » Sat Dec 23, 2017 1:34 pm

I suspect it just needs to be adjusted, but what are some other possible causes? additionally it had formed a ring around the feed gear itself but I cleared that before I noticed that it had actually cut the filament completely so I don't have a picture.

Edit: I just took off the cover and noticed that it actually crushed the filament below the gear

Edit 2: the filament is Hydrofill by Airwolf 3d this is my first time printing with it, it seems to be pretty fragile (it is also supposed to be a water soluble support material compatible with ABS)
