Mini+ Extrusion Issues

Hey everyone,

I've been having some trouble with extrusion/filament coming out of my mini. So far I have tried increasing the flow factor (by increments of 5), increasing the temperature of the hot end, adjusting the z-axis, cleaning the nozzle, and doing a cold pull. However, my prints still have large sections missing where hardly no filament comes out or it comes out very thin. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue further?

What filament? At default PrusaSlicer settings? How old is printer? Is printer modified/upgraded? Since when you have this problem? You had good prints before this happened?
-all those answers can lead to finding the cause of this problem faster.

Look like your Z-offset is bit high. Run First Layer Calibration and try to lower it. Follow the instruction:

Second, what kind of filament do you use? PETG or PLA? The PRUSA printout uses only PLA. (just in case you missed it. If not, ignore it 😉 )
