Stuck print core AFTER the BLOB


Recommended Posts

Posted · Stuck print core AFTER the BLOB

Help!  I've had blobs before, but this is the blob of all blobs.  I cannot get the print core to release.  It would be as easy as heating the print core, if the wires to the print core itself were not completely disconnected when removing the initial mass.  UGH!!!  It is clearly cemented in, but I can't figure out where it's still connected via solidified filament.  I've used a heated tool to try to melt the plastic from around the housing, but this doesn't work either.  It's not even trying to budge!

    Oh nooo! I've had this before and it's super frustrating. 

    This seems like a hardware problem.

    I don't want you to get hurt when working with a heatgun.

      • 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.
