Hey Folks,

Am here in the Artengine lab working on the Cupcake CNC but am having
trouble with my printing process. I seem to get too much plastic coming out
at the start and have to stop as it starts building a little puddle of

It seems like the nozzle is moving too slow or the extrusion too fast.

I am running the build from the SD Card.

Looking through the MakerBot Site I can find lots of info about not getting
enough filament, but nothing about too much.

Do I have to figure out what the right feed rate is? Is the 220 degree C
temp too hot?
