Extruder not feeding under Octoprint...OK from SD card

When I print from octoprint, the extruder seems to only be extruding 5% or 10% of the normal amount of filament.

  • When I print a file from SD card it prints well.
  • When I print there same file from Octoprint there is barely any plastic being extruded. The travel motions all seem fine, but very little seems to be coming out...as if a "Dry Run". (But some does come out, just not much.)

Any thoughts on what is likely to be causing this?

I am new to Octoprint, so it could bee something really simple (and stupid on my part.)

What are you running OctoPrint on?  Have you searched over on the OctoPrint forums to see if its a common issue?

Is your printer grinding? Bearings squeaking? Motors smoking?
Step 1) Wash your Steel Sheet
Step 2) Return to Step 1...

@seattledave Are you using the same gcode in both cases? Ditto what nilok asked.

BTW I read your spat with Bob on another thread, so if you're unhappy with my question/advise, then disregard as I have no interest in your opinions of my speeling or punctuation*
