  1. Figure with me getting my printer back up & running I'd start my own thread in regards to this hobby. (Thank you @Jasper_the_2nd @Clearman for time in regards to your topics!!) So last week I had what was referred to in the 3d printing field as a "Glob of Death" or something along those lines. I ended up a solid blob of filament that engulfed my entire nozzle, the heatsink & everything but the fans. I think if I wasn't still new to the entire hobby I could have just heated up the blob & let gravity take over. To be safe I ordered a complete new hot end, which is the entire black box that is positioned on the middle bar you see if look at pictures of the Creality Ender 3, ie the business end of your printer. Bottom (where the nozzle should be. You see a nozzle?? Ha ha) Back (It's not a nice texture at least!) Front (again the bits on the tile are cut off parts of the shroud that is usually over all of this. It's on the right side of the hotend in this picture.) & these are what was behind the shroud. I finally got my screw off today. I was all set to cut a slot into the hex screw as it wouldn't turn with with the factory supplied hex wrench but as I was wrenching the shroud off I noticed it was actually turning the screw! I ended up cutting off the shroud (what you see on the tile in one of the pics) & then it was a matter of getting a set of pliers around the screw to give it a few starter turns. I ended up using my thumb & finger to get it fully out. Oh well, I have some new Dremel EZ lock mandrel & reinforced cutting disks!! Currently I'm in the process of trying to get the hot glue off the control board. Creality decided to glue down the connectors to the board....ugh why? I do need to figure out what wire goes where but I've got diagrams. I'm more worried about the heater wires (the larger red ones). I'm not sure if they have to go to the right connector or not. Once I get the glue off, I should be able to swap the wires out & re-hook everything back up!
