How to Remove the Printer Head Lens without the Lens Tool
1. Turn Off Your Glowforge
Power off your Glowforge and open the lid.
Holding only the finished black surfaces, grasp the Printer Head as shown. Pull gently up and back to disengage the magnets and remove the head.
There is a small tab in the center of the wire ribbon. Push down fully on the tab to release it, and gently pull the wire ribbon plug from the Printer Head.
4. Remove Top of Printer Head
The top of the Printer Head is held on by strong magnets. Grasping only the top, pull up carefully to remove it and set it aside.
5. Remove Mirror from Printer Head
Gently pick up the mirror, and set it aside.
6. Remove the Lens
Set the print head down, and tip it slightly towards you.
Starting at the top of the head, where you just removed the mirror, use the eraser end of a pencil to gently push the lens out of the bottom of the print head.
You can order a new Lens Tool in the Glowforge Shop.
