    Hello all
    I had my R2 working great last night until what i was printing poped off the bed. So this morning i tried to do it again but this time after 2-3 layers the stepper motor for the filament stops moving and wont push the filament thru. Im using PLA that came with the printer with heat bed at 60. Now am i suppose to oil it first for the R2 like we did with the R1? What is odd also is when im on octipi and i use the control to extrude its pushes the filament out but wont do it now after a few layers as its printing.

    Shouldn't need to oil it, but if you do it will not hurt anything. It is not too close to the bed is it? That can increase the backpressure and with a direct extruder you can overpower the extruder and it will stop.
