I left my printer unattended printing a bonsai planter then when i got back the print was only 1mm short and the printhead was cracked and the filament snapped on the feeder. Now i cant remove the filament between the nozzle and the end of the feeder. I inspected the nozzle and it got pla material on it, im thinking that the nozzle grinded on the print.

Hi,

could you upload some pictures of your printhead?

When removing the blue horse shoe and pushing down the white clip you should very easily be able to pull out the bowden tube.

If you do this at the feeder while your printhead is hot, you should be able to manually remove the filament.

Good luck!

A printed replacement could work, you can find the dimensions on our github account.

Alternatively, you should also be able to get a replacement from your point of sales.

Whatever works for you :)

Let us know how things go!

Sander,

my print head has cracked as well. I wanted to print a replacement but the wrong files is on Github. Under Print Head Top are the files for Print Head Fan.
