After seeing that before/after, can hardly wait to get home from vacation, when my lead weights will have arrived so I can use Pratyeka's weight mounts. Looking forward to proper prints!

I'm having a problem with my prints coming out curved. I put some pictures below, I moved the print to a different spot on the print surface and the part is curved on a different side.
I also have a blobbing issue, at the beginning of a print it will make a big blob of plastic and then when it pauses while printing because of the layer wait time, it will let a bunch of filament out and form a blob on the print when it continues printing.

Here is something I just printed that is maybe about 100mm or so. Not sure did not measure it, hung it right away with my screwdrivers.

I still have a bad extrusion problem. I think the extruder motor may have problems it chitters a lot. When I take out the motor, the stem is full of black grease. I clean it and next time it is full of grease again. Also the motor gets really hot.

When I print large objects, it is printing fine but about 2/3s in to the print, it stops extruding but continues to move the print head for quite some time. If I push filament at the feed tube it starts to extrude again but by that time the print is ruined. Also the final layer is very stringy and brittle. At other times it just stops and retracts the print head as if it is out of filament but there is still filament in the tubes.

I have resolved my spool issues because I watch it and the spool is rotating and filament is fed into the extruder motor.

All this is why I suspect that I have a failing extruder motor(?).

Same here.
