I need some help please, i was going to clean the nozzle by using the acetone bath but when i took out the nozzle it broke off in the hotend.
I managed to remove the threads that were stuck in the hotend but I need to replace the nozzle. I know that zotrax supplies the nozzles but its going to take alteast a week or more to get to me and i really cant wait that long. Is it ok to use the MK9 0.4mm nozzle that I can get locally ?
I'm guessing you tried to remove the nozzle when it was cold..You MUST heat extruder before removing. I would not recommend using a different one as the threads are probably different or the tube might not fit inside..
Thanks Kyle, yep, silly newbie mistake of trying to take it out when cold. Learnt a valuable lesson ;) .
I ordered 2 nozzles from zortrax just in case :)
In the future, you should remember that if you want remove the nozzle your extruder must be hot :)
