Introduction: Easy Cleaning - Clogged 3D Printer Nozzle
Cleaning a clogged nozzle is very hard at times. This is an easy and cheap method to clean clogged nozzle.
Step 1: Things You Need
1. Acetone (Nail polish remover)
2. Candle or Lighter
4. Aluminium foil
Step 2: Dip the Nozzle in Acetone
The higher the concentration of acetone lesser the time required.
I use nail polish remover because they are cheap and easy to get.
Leave it for 20-30 minutes.
Step 3: Clean the Big End Using Needle
Remove the plastic using a needle.
There will be plastic left over a the tip which cannot be cleaned using needle.
Step 4: Wrap the Nozzle
Wrap the nozzle in Aluminium foil. Leave the top end open so that the fumes can go out.
Step 5: Bring It Near to Flame
Hold the nozzle into the flame for around 5 minutes. Remove foil and check the nozzle
- If there is still plastic heat it again.
- If it is clean then wash the nozzle and remove any leftovers using needle.
Step 6: Thats It..:-)
Hold it near to any light source and check whether it is clean.
