Degraded prints over time

Jan 14, 2019 12:41 am


Printer: MK 3.0

Firstly, apologies, i bought my printer fully assembled, a thing i now regret because i have no idea how to fix what is now happening - i hope you guys can help!

The printer was working fine until i couldn’t unload a filament that would not come out - i had to open the extruder and pull it out - the end was a bit fat. anyway, i put it back together and the next few prints seemed fine

Then i started printing my first several hour print - and i had to stop it mid print because it looked a bit messed up - lots of spots on it:,

For reference:

this is the first print i ever made from the printer after it was delivered:

I printed this after the failed print i mentioned above:

I ran the wizard in the calibration menu, and then printed this:

Not sure what is happening, but feels bad man :(

any help much appreciated!
