Print Core Stuck - Ultimaker 3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Core Stuck - Ultimaker 3

Hello there,


I recently removed AA 0.4 core on my Print head slot 2 and put in a BB 0.4 core and now it won't come out.... I noticed another post where the Ultimaker Rep mentioned/showed pictures of how to pull it out correctly (vertically with a specific grip) but that didn't work...


Should I take it in to a local shop? Does this mean I will need to get a new print head? I purchased this second hand and its frustrating on what I thought would be pretty darn basic.


Also, on a side note... it looks like the print heads are not lining up horizontally. Could this be indicating an issue?

    The upper surface of the translucent plastic part has two recesses, where the print head housing "grips" it.

    So when pressing the "release"-lever, just apply a LITTLE bit of pressure down on the translucent part and you should be able to pull the core out easily.
