Print Core 1 jammed UM3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Core 1 jammed UM3

I cannot change Print Core 1, .25mm. I have followed the solution of lifting up on the nozzle while pinching the installation tabs. I even used needle nose pliers to squeeze the tabs together and pull. I am careful not to put enough force on it to bend the guide rods. My prints turn out good. The last time I changed this Core it was difficult but worked. Can the filament jam the Core so that it cannot retract enough to clear it? I don't see obvious build up of burned filament.

Thanks for the help...someone

    I have had this problem recently where the print head will not come out. I ultimately end up breaking the "aluminum cooler" I think it is called. In the past my print heads have become so clumped with I filament I ordered 2 brand new print heads.

        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.
