Printrbot simple makers edition

Postby Mike_Brown15 » 2015-Jan-Sat-21-Jan

Every time i plug my printer in and the hot end heats up, the filament seems to constantly be feeding through and it messes up my print. Is there anyway i can fix this?

Once it's up to temp, filament will drool out of the hot end; Is it coming out like the extruder motor's on?

Mine drools a small amount; that's generally how I know it's up to working temp. I keep a pair of cutters handy to clip the drool off right before I start the print, and I watch to make sure it's feed correctly when it dumps the brim out before working on the part itself.
