Filament Stuck In S3 Print Core


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Stuck In S3 Print Core

I kicked off a print over the weekend, and came back to print stopped because the filament wasn't feeding. I assume the nozzle is clogged, but the problem is I can't get the filament out of the core. I saw a similar problem where it was suggested heating the core up to 280 to soften the filament. Tried that, heating it up for 30 minutes, but still couldn't work the filament out. Any other ideas on getting the filament removed would be very appreciated!

    You could try to heat up the core, but open the front door of the head that the fan is not cooling anymore the heat break. But be careful otherwise you mess up the upper part of the core with filament and it. would be hard to get it out.


    Maybe a better solution is to cut the filament from outside with a cutter or something like that. I had the same problem some months ago and I was able to cut the filament exactly above the print core. 


    If nothing helps, you can only open the print head itself.

      • 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
