Is there a maintenance guide or some other recommended resources on how to clean up a nozzle?
I'm suspecting that the issue I'm seeing (deformations on one side of the print all the time when printing with the right nozzle
https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=20202) may be indicated a partially clogged nozzle.
I'm thinking I should attempt to remove the nozzle and clean it somehow. But I've never done it before. I don't suppose I can use a needle and try to clean the nozzle with a needle? Mine is standard nozzle (0.4mm) that came with the printer.

I remove such nozzles and burn them out with a Bunsen burner. The filament burns almost completely, if there are any remains in the nozzle, you can carefully remove them with a pipe cleaner. You can also put them in acetone after they burn out and clean them after about an hour. I then polish with a soft brass breast and the nozzle looks like new. You can find a lot of tools on Amazon or eBay to clean the nozzle opening. I wish good luck!
