Hello,

I wanna ask you about the cleaning of the machine. Is it possible to get the screw out of the machine to clean it thoroughly.

Thanks in advance. 

Best regards,
Gallio

Have a nice Day

Hi @louis,

the filament maker i use, was already used by different people with a lot of different materials for research projects. I want to be sure that the extruder screw is cleaned properly. For that i would be awesome if i can get the manual as well. In addition is there any chance to get the dimensions of the hopper and the extruder screw?

 

best regards,

Frank

Hi!

I am also interested in changing the screw and in a manual that describes the process. We have an early model (Next 1.0 Advanced) which is supposed to have a screw with a mixing area. For the material we are experimenting with, this is not recommended, so we would like to swap to a "normal" screw. Is that possible and are the screws available as replacement part?

Best regards

Thomas

Dear Thomas @hsel

Thank you very much for your request. 

The Precision screw keeps the flow more stable. This results in less mixing, but a slightly superior pushing force. 

I will send you an email to send you the guide and get you in touch with our sales team, so they can assist you with this matter 😊 

Please let me know if you have any other questions

Hello Louis/Lucas,

Can you also email me the screw removal guide please? I am using a Composer 450 machine. I was processing PVA, some of which has gotten stuck to the screw. The screw is rotating freely but with reduced material output.

Please also let me know some tip/tricks, if you have any, to remove PVA completely from the screw/barrel without needing to remove the screw as I understand it's a tedious process.

Thank you for your help. Look forward to your reply.

Best,
