So I’m still relatively new to the Lulzbot Mini, but for a while things have been going well. Last night I set up a long print - one of the longest I’ve ever attempted (6+ hours) and went to bed. This morning I found that the print malfunctioned early in the run, and tried to print for those 6 plus hours and nothing came out. I tried to remove the filament (with a ton of force, as always) and discovered that the gear that feeds the filament had chewed its way through, and my forceful tug snapped the filament right at the weak chewed up point.
Now I’m stuck with a nub right at the gear that won’t budge. I can’t pull it out or push it through. I’ve tried superheating the printer (I’m using PLA and pushed it to 250) and while some filament did dribble out, the trapped filament still won’t budge.
Is there anything I can do, or is this whole thing busted? Any help would be appreciated.
