Disaster: fused PLA around the nozzle and extruder

Postby fabbridome » Sat Feb 16, 2019 6:30 am

Have a look! ;-(
What can I do? Can I use Nitrometan to safely remove PLA?
Help me please!

Warm the filament, it will go soft. Then it can be easily removed by tweezers.

Use heat gun blower and sharp tools. Slowly.
