Printhead clogged up with filament Help request

Recommended Posts

Hello,

there is a big Problem with my Ultimaker-2.

Printing problems caused quite a lot of filament to

be stuck inside of the print head.

While the nozzle is

free and does print ok, during printing the material

inside the print head is heated up, causing it to

flow out of the head and mess up the print.

Advice on how to clean the print head

are very much appreciated.

All the best,

Christoph

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
