Can't remove heater. Pt100B dead also

Recommended Posts

Hi. Yesterday after the 11th nozzle change (really long history) I got filament leak. The aluminium block screw died (part of alu came out when unscrewing the heatbreak). So I cooled it off waiting and after removing the m3 I wasn't able to move the pt100. Tryed pushing from the other side of the hole and nothing. It broke in the end.

Now I have the heater hyper stuck inside. It doesn't move not even a mm.

What are my options? Try to drill the alu block? (I really don't have a room to drill metals safely). Anyone knows a trick? Maybe hitting with a hammer from the exit hole?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
