Stops printing mid print

the Printer stops printing prematurely. the part isn't finished but the print bed is lowered. as it is a 9 hour print and was done over night i can't say anything about what happend. furthermore i printed two other parts using the same gcode. any suggestions    


Look motor of filament, we have strange problem with one, it is blocked.

Hennag Hansen did you figure this out?


-B

Hello Hennag, i can probably say that the extruder got blocked or the filament was entangled on the spool and the machine stoped extruding at some point.
