Filament stuck inside bowden tube

Recommended Posts

Help! I have some material of Ultimaker's Yellow PLA stuck inside the bowden tube, that it cannot come out! The material must have melted, and then it cooled inside the tube and now it's impossible to take it out. I've tried inserting filament from one side and pushing it as hard as possible, putting it under hot water hoping that it would soften a bit, but it is quite stuck. Can anyone advise me on how to take it out? Thanks in advance.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
