Hey guys, So I just finished my second spool of filament. Unfortunately, since the filament runout detection doesn't work yet it was printing in the air. However....when I was loading up my 3rd spool I noticed that the orbiter extruder wasn't extruding anymore. I can feel it vibrating and I can rotate the gears manually but the extruder itself just isn't working anymore. Anyone any advice or should I ask makertech for the warranty.

ehm....The printer doesn't want to turn off anymore..... The front button isn't stuck...it isn't over tightened (it is loosely hand tightened). It...just doesn't work anymore....I can press it and it pops out but the printer just keeps going.... Anyone any advice??

@Makertech 3D: There seems to be a bug in the filament runout sensor code. I just finished my fist spool of filament with the proforge 3. The filament runout sensor triggered (Checked with M119) but the print didn't pause and just continued printing.... I stopped it manually after a few minutes.

So I adjusted to fan speed in Cura and I still get loads of clogging. I get no clogging when I slice it with Prusaslicer though. So I've been investigating the difference. It seems Cura does a lot of weird retractions which I believe cause the "clogging" issues as it bites into the same bit of filament over and over again until it is stuck. Prusaslicer doesn't seem to suffer from this issue. Anyone any clue what might be causing these weird retractions in Cura and if we can turn that off. Never had this issue on my ultimaker 2+ with Cura.

So I'm getting thermal runaway errors when printing a simple temperature tower from 220°C till 180°C using cura's calibration shapes. Anyone else experiencing the same issues?? My guess is that the firmware currently checks if the hotend temperature is a certain value above the set point and triggers a thermal runaway if it is above that point...Not sure. I've attached my gcode. Edit: I can't attach my gcode here so I used pastebin https://pastebin.com/g1LC8y8K

It seems my right stepper motor is skipping. Using the makertech's defeat firmware. I might need to increase the current a little bit.
