Thanks again everyone. My action items/tests for tonight:
I'll test extrusion steps/mm for extruder (with no nozzle this time)
While i have nozzle off check for blockages
I'll test existing thermistor at room temp and w/ boiling water and report back.
I presume with this information we can adjust the config file?
We didn't talk about it, but i'll validate the extruder stepper motor wiring, making sure I don't have any phase wiring issues.
I'll report back after tests.
