    I'm trying to print with PLA however I am still getting the issue with my print head pushing into the print. Plus the print head just goes back and forward without trying to print my parts shape.

    I am beginning to wonder if I am using the splicer properly or I have the model incorrect as it looks nowhere near what I am trying to print and it is really frustrating.

    Managed to get my printer to work. I spotted that one of my motors was disconnected which I must have done by accident when I was assembling the extruder assembly for the 1st time. I feel such an idiot for messing around all this time while the most obvious cause to my problems was staring at me in the face.

    I have managed to print the roof of my robot out of PLA. I had to redo it because the print stuck to my bed and I applied too much force to get it off. I got the second attempt off by using the chisel they give you and a rubber mallet.

    Now it will be time to print the main body then I will assemble it and play around. I am planning on making some adjustments to the design and will be looking to build a 2nd antweight robot and then go and find competitions.
