Cleaning blocked extruder nozzle in 3D printers

Published on in Category 3DPriting

Many of you don’t like the nozzle clogs and blocks, We too. Even the smallest contamination can block the 0.4mm nozzle, You can use a 0.4mm or smaller drill bits to clean up the aperture while the hotend is hot. But sometime (many time) the contamination would come back and block the nozzle. That’s very bad especially when your are in the mid of big prints. Nozzle block or clogs can identified via below symptoms, - filament are not extruding uniformly - extrude very thin filament than usual - Or the filament is not at all coming out from nozzle.
