    I'm completely new to 3D printing and I just finished building my P3Steel. I am working with a Cyclops hotend setup for Direct Drive (Amadon's direct drive, thingiverse) and I'm having issues with extruding. I get one or two layers before I get, what i think is a clog, then nothing. Only working with one extruder (I'll figure out 2 later) so no problems yet with that. Could anyone help me with maybe settings or troubleshooting? Like I said I'm completely new so I might have the settings entirely wrong.

    Can you supply more information such as material, temperature, etc.

    PLA, 230 C 30mm/s extruding speed. I took a look this morning for my steps per mm calibration, maybe that will fix it? Expected was 100 actual was 250. If that will fix it then maybe you could help me with dual extrusion?
