    Hey everyone! Could someone please tell me how I can fix the extruder skipping steps issue? When I print a large 3D model, the major part is printed well, but some percentage of the surface is incomplete. For a long time I thought that it was due to filament snapping. But last night I saw that the filament doesn't even move during these snaps. What could it be?

    Here are examples of my printouts.

    I print on Teva Tarantula 3D printer.
    Print temperature 241C.
    Speed 110 mm/s.
    ABS filament.

    I would suggest your printing to fast for a start. If you need to print that fast you'll probably need to increase the temp to allow the hot end time to melt it, it sounds and looks like it isn't hot enough for the filament to flow.

    I'd keep the temp the same (maybe increase a bit) and print at a more normal speed of 60mm/s.
