Broken nozzle inside heater block

Recommended Posts

Posted · Broken nozzle inside heater block

I was having under extrusion problems with my Ultimaker Original last weak, which I believe was a pressure problem in my extruder, grasping to hard on the filament leading to irregular diameter and eventually clogs on the nozzle.

I had the brilliant ideia to disassemble the print head, took off the nozzle just fine and saw that was still clogged. When I was trying to put the nozzle back in the heater block, with Ultimaker turned off, and I manage to broke the nozzle, leaving the screw part stuck inside the heater block.

Now I have the heater block with a clogged screw in it. What is the best way to remove the broken nozzle from the heater block? Is it better to turn on the Ultimaker and heat it up? Or leave the clogged filament as a leverage so I can get it out with a screw extractor?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
