So right off the bat, I know that this is not a hotend problem because I have replaced just about every part possible on the hotend with new parts and it still prints the same. I suspect its the motor that pushes the filament into the hot end because it was making a small grinding noise a few days ago. Is this a common problem? All help is appreciated. I'm using basic pla, the nozzle is new and same size, and I have not noticed the feeding gear having troubles with the common clipping problem.
