Late extrusion issue

When I start a print, it seems like my filament doesn’t extrude right away, it seems like there’s a bit of a delay. For like an inch or so then it starts to flow fine.

Any ideas?

Are you talking about the purge line? Mine always seems to do that. If that’s the case, I’m not sure it’s a problem, although I don’t really know why it happens. I’d have to check the GCode to see if it’s simply programmed to do that.

Yeah, I just noticed it for the first time today,
I’ve been super busy the last few weeks and am finally getting around to calibrating after some upgrades.

I know when I prehat most of my machines I will get leakage, this leakage will drain the nozzle and therefore delay the start of the print on my next one. I will almost always get it with my prints, I actually put a skirt down (min 200mm) on every print to ensure everything is primed up before it hits the real print.
