Hi

I remove the nozzle with the heater on, not possible on Cold heater.

look up the 'atomic' pull method.

Basically you heat up the tip to near printing temp then pull the filament out quick, it clears alot from the tip all the way up.

then removing the tip cold is pretty easy as most of the plastic is out of there...
