Not extruding at start of print

Not extruding at start of print

This problem is probably the most common for every 3D printing newbie, but is also very easy to solve! If your nozzle is not extruding plastic at the first layer, this can have some possible causes.

As often it is a combination between printing speed and nozzle temperature settings to get the best results for overhangs. We cannot give you a general solution, because different materials, printers and part cooling fans influences the outcome of the overhang very much.
We recommend to print overhang tests to optimize your settings and to find out which angles of overhangs are possible.
