Hi,

Not sure i understood clearly your problem. But i seem to understand that some filament is leaking from the top of the nozzle where you screw it too the block?

If so, then you need to tighten the nozzle a bit more, heat the nozzle to at least 140 - 160°c and tighten it more. After that you need to relevel the bed most probably.

Always change the nozzle while hot.

I advise you to print the torque wrench that you can find on youmagine

      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
