Any hope for this nozzle?

Recommended Posts

You could try very carefully to get the PLA off with a heat gun and tweezers. You want to be careful not to damage the cables or put too much pressure on the brass block and risk damaging the heat break. PLA gets soft at fairly cool temperatures, so you may be able to pull the plastic clear on the outside. I'm not so sure about whatever is inside the nozzle, but if you can get the outside clear, you may be able to push what's on the inside all the way through.
