Ultimaker 3e printcores fatally glued together


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 3e printcores fatally glued together

Hello dear forum,


last week I started a print with renkforce glow-in-the-dark pla-filament.

Unfortunately I left the printer alone just after I sent the printfile to it.


When I came back after two hours, the filament got completely stuck into both cores of the print head. The lower part of the filament clog was scratching the glass bed which got delocated from the holders by its movement.


After dragging out most of the glued filament (which took a couple of hours) I reached now a point where both printcores are still stucked although most of the glued filament is out now.

My questions:

Did anyone have the same problem yet?

Do You know a way of getting the stucked printcores out of the print head without using an angle grinder?


Thank You a lot in advance!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
