Click noise from extruder

A click sound from the extruder can mean the stepper motor tripped out of synchronization or the hobbled wheel jumped over the filament. The source of it could be that there is not enough force to squeeze the amount of filament through the nozzle. Solutions:

  1. Increase extruder temperature so the filament gets more liquid

  2. Reduce layer height so less material is requested

  3. Reduce extruder width (this might be the solution for a first layer where a bigger layer height is requested)
