Filament Maker Screw Removal
@louis Hey Louis,
i have the same problem with the stucked screw due to a stucked screwdriver in it.
Can you please send me the document, where you explain, how to remove it?
It would be very nice!
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?
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
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?
Thank you for participating on the forum.
I have send an email with the procedure to your personal email.
if you have any questions regarding the procedure feel free to reach out.
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.
