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.


Which Filament is best for 3D Printer 3mm or 1.75 mm

Before we see which filament is best for 3D Printer in this article, lets find why filament came in. In early times the inventors (RepRap community and others) used the filament of different size, some even used direct extruded materials to be feed to the 3d printers, but they were not portable, soon every one started and settled with the wire like filament, which can be easily rolled in a coil spool, transported, portable etc.
