Filament stuck in printcore 1

A piece of ABS is stuck inside print core 1. It is broke off down inside of the print core where I can't reach it with tweezers or pliers to heat it and pull it out. I have tried to push it through with another piece of filament and that won't work either. Any other thoughts?

    Do you have access to a heat gun? That would soften the plastic enough to either push through or pull out. It sounds jammed just before it gets to the hot parts (How's THAT for tech speak?) and cannot be gotten too as it is. Too far in to get a good grip and not far enough to get soft and push through.

    Anything that can blow a tight column of heated air should do. Just have decent temp control.

    I have had this happen to me......so...dat is how I solved it :)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
