Moderate Clicking, but fine Prints, any Ideas

My i3Mk3s+ started to make some moderate clicking sounds. The printy quality is unchanged. Do i need to worry, did it alway sound like that?IMG_7642

This is white prusament PLA at 0,2 mm Quality Setting fresh out of PrusaSli3cer.

 

Thanks People

Where is the source of the clicking?

If the extruder then it may just be a slight filament-grip problem, perhaps filament specific; white is always the most difficult colour to print. It may go away with a different filament or it might need a tweak to the idler screw.

If the clicking is coming from the X or Y idler your bearing may be breaking up, it's time to buy spares.

Cheerio,

Ah, white is the hardest, didn't know that. No the bearings are fine. I tried it with black PLA and it went away as you said. Crazy

White requires more pigment than other colours so flow characteristics can vary, often it's enough to raise the print temperature by a few degrees.

Cheerio,
