Re: extruder motor stops turning

thanks for the suggestions. i ran out of the filament the problematic gcode was prepared for, so had to use another roll, explaining the overextrusion. i'll certainly keep working on the temperature.

thanks for all the help on this issue. your commitment is legendary!
