Print core is completely encapsulated

The only way really is to heat up the plastic around the printcore with a heat gun and be carefull not to burn any wires or anything and as the plastic gets soft you can start to pull some of it away with tweezers or something. Might need you to strip the print head down as much as you can.


But you should be able to save it. Then it's a case of once fixed to see if you can find out why the print head flooded in that manner.

    Thanks Carla! I was forced to break the printer core to remove it from the machine so we could continue to move forward. I tried using heat for a while, but I wasn't able to get any movement from the printer head without pulling it out completely.


    Pretty unfortunate.
