[Solved] Filament Maker Screw Removal
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.
Have a nice Day
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?
Hello @louis, could you send me the step-by-step guide for removing the screw? Thank you in advance.
Hello Giada (@zocchi),
I have sent you the instructions via e-mail!
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?
Hi Timo and Louis,
Can you please send me the manual to remove the screw?
Hi Lucas, Can I also have the manual to remove the screw for a proper clean?
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.
please send me a manual to remove the extruder screw, also please provide a TDS for the PLA pellets that come with the machine.
it would be great if you could also send me the instructions for removing the extruder screw.
Thanks for your help!
