Successfully get stucked PVA material out of nozzle


Recommended Posts

Posted · Successfully get stucked PVA material out of nozzle

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.

    Perfect!  This is called a cold pull (but with a second material) and it's also easiest to remove the bowden tube from the print head before doing this.  but not mandatory.
