When replacing printer components (such as changing the release film in a resin printer or replacing the printhead in an FDM printer), you may come across situations where the screws are challenging to dismantle. This problem can arise due to factors like improper handling or damaged threads, leading to screw slippage.
To avoid similar problems in the future, it is crucial to ensure the correct selection of suitable screws and proper utilization methods. Consider the following techniques to facilitate screw removal:
a) Attempt to unscrew them using a screwdriver one size larger.
b) Enhance friction by placing a small piece of tape on the screw head, allowing for easier removal.
c) Carve a cross on the screw cap using a cutting tool until reaching a certain depth, then utilize a screwdriver to unscrew it.
d) Utilize alternative tools like a pistol drill if necessary.
If the screws have suffered significant slippage and are no longer usable, it is recommended to replace them. Purchase new screws of the appropriate size and type, and employ a screwdriver or wrench for proper installation.
Please note that adhering to these guidelines will contribute to a smoother replacement process and ensure optimal performance of the printer components.
