I am in a very tough spot… I was printing an ABS print that was going to take overnight to print. So I began printing and it seemed to go along all right at first. So I went to bed.
I put a NEW roll of ABS on from Gizmo Geeks, black 3mm.
When I came down in the morning I was shocked to see that the model had come off the bed and that the TAZ6 had continued to extrude overnight and somehow managed to FULLY ENCASE itself and the wires around it in ABS… It is almost a half inch thick… It followed the wires, encasing them as well.
This effectively shuts me down as I cannot heat up the extruder to the point where it can soften the exterior encasement of ABS. I have NO idea what to do in this situation.
How can I get this stuff removed? am I supposed to use acetone? If so it will take days to remove a half inch of ABS… I am completely bewildered. I dont even know how this could possibly even happen!
I wanted to attach the image I took but there is no upload.
