Some plastic is trapped in behind the plate that covers the nozzle.

It's very easy to remove that part, simply remove the four screws that holds it in place, two on each side (you see one of the screw heads in the top left of you image).

You'll probably need to heat up to print temperature to be able to break it free though... It'll take you a while to clean that mess (trust me, I've done it). A hot air gun or an old soldering iron can be helpful as well. Oh, and be careful around the cables on the back, the thinner one can be quite fragile where it enters the block.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
