Filament stuck in 2 different build cores now


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Filament stuck in 2 different build cores now

I have an um3 that has worked flawlessly for over 8 months, in the last week now I have had 2 separate build cores end up with filament stuck in them where it will not unload or push through. Nothing will help.

1 core now has filament stuck in the heat break and it snapped just below were the filament goes into the core. the 2nd one hasn't snapped off but I can't get it to move even at 280cc and I'm afraid to mess with it.

I bought a new core to replace the first assuming it was a fluke but now it happened to my second core in less than a week.  Using curator 2.7beta and two different types of filaments where used that were pla.  

Anyone have ideas?   I have printed with this for 8 months with no issues.

    Nothing has changed other than firmware updates or cura versions.

    I even tried different filament and it happened. I was able to free the one core though with the filament still stuck in it to were I could yank and pull it.

    The first core now is the issue where the filament is stuck above the melt/heat area and below were it enters core so that I can't pull or touch it.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
