And it was perfect. Should I be thinning out my dough? What am I doing wrong?

Well, I'm not sure about the rigatoni (the issue might be the extruder), but I know that ravioli has to be rolled thinner since it tends to be thicker at the points where it's stuck together. It doubles up and is therefore twice as thick as it would be on its own. When rolling ravioli, I always make sure its an enriched dough (so it stretches more), and that I can just see my hand through it.
I use mostly double 00 flour. I get the ravioli but how would I make the rigatoni less thick? The machine/attachment (kitchenaid) is brand new.
When I say "enriched", I mean a dough with eggs/yolks in it. And as for the rigatoni...if its an extruder, its most likely just how large the gauge of the dye is. If you don't mind a little bit of work, you could try garganelli, its not rigatoni, but its similar. And since its hand-shaped, you can control the thickness of the dough better.
Yes I use eggs.
