[Dual Extruder v3] Disassembly of extruders from heat break

Post by casey » Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:26 am

I have posted about this before, but there is filament that is stuck in the heat break of my E1 extruder. I have disassembled it, but I want to know what the safest way of getting the extruders off will be? I have pictures of my issue and would appreciate any help. I just don't want to mess something up with this and hurt the printer head.

At this point you could probably separate the heat break from the heatsink by unscrewing those very tiny allen head screws, use the smallest Allen wrench from the kit that came with your Taz 6. Once separated you can use a heat gun or flame to melt off the plastic.
