Started a 4 hour print over night and woke up to a empty bed. Did a little troubleshooting and thought the nozzle was clogged so I took apart the bowden tube and tried to pull out the loaded filament with no success.

It looks like I shoved the bowden tube into the extruder causing the end to shrink.

The filament also looks like it was clogged in the hot end causing it to thicken up making it impossible to extract from the tube without cutting it.

I also trimmed the tube where the coupling on the hot end side sits because it was wearing through the tube, which may have also contributed to the extrusion skip and the clogging.
