    1st layer prints great everything else extrudes uneven

    Good Afternoon,
    1st post here so I apologize if this is an extremely basic question. I have been printing for years on a Robo 3D R1 printer for custom rod handles I make with Carbon Fiber handles. Never had an issue that had me stumped. I just can't seem to figure this one out however. I have attached the image of the print of a 35mm square box for calibration and as you can see the extruder is doing its own thing. I have attempted the following:

    • Cleaned the extruder and nozzle
    • Cleaned the drive gear
    • Adjusted the spring tension on drive gear
    • cleaned print bed
    • adjusted extrusion temperature up and down


    My next step will be to try a new filament but I am not confident that will resolve it. These same settings have worked flawlessly in the past so I am having troubles determining where to go from here. Any input would be greatly appreciated and once again I apologize if this seems like common sense as I have been self taught keeping the R1 operating.

    I forgot to mention that I am printing an ABS 1.75mm. My heat is set to 225 degrees C.

    have you lowered the printing speed ? check if the drive pulleys on the stepper motors are screwed on tight?
