Hi everyone, I'm trying to print a tour eiffel, but when the extruder retract the filament and after 4 or 5 retractions in a little space (you know how the eiffel is done), the filament is eroded and no more plastic come out from the nozzle... it's driving me crazy... how to fix it?

There are about 3-4 different topics all regarding a stock extruder slipping and grinding at various points in a print.
They are all related to the same basic guidelines to improve the stock system.
Sorry you are having issues, we have solutions to attempt to correct this:
Good related topic of another user having basically similar issues (slightly different, but in the end, still grinding/slipping)

Recommended adjustment- mechanical adjustment

Recommended simple hardware upgrade for the stock feeder- changing the drive gear

Recommended electrical adjustment and understanding (Note, this is not an official Raise 3D answer, but is one that quite a few community members and fellow owners followed)
