Successfully get stucked PVA material out of nozzle

Recommended Posts

I tried all solutions from Ultimaker website but non of them work. 

 

Here is my solution: 

First heat the stucked nozzle to 200-215 degrees. (To melt the material) 

Put a segment of PLA material in to the stucked print core/nozzle until it does not go in anymore

Keep the material in the nozzle and apply some preasure

Lower the temperature to 80-90 degrees while keeping the PLA material in the nozzle (To let both stucked material and PLA cool down so they become a whole)

Pull the PLA out and the stucked material should come out

 

See Picture Below

The pink thing is PLA material I used to pull the material out of course I cutted it, the brownish translucent thing is the PVA material stucked in the nozzle.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
