Filament stuck in printcore 1

Recommended Posts

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 :)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      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.
