Others in here have noted that you can take the top off of the laser head and push the lens out with a cotton swab.


Yes, you can push the lens out from the top. If you remove the lid of the print head, and the mirror, you’ll see the lens from above. Have your hand or a soft surface underneath to catch it. Once you get the magnet off the lens, you can superglue it back onto the plastic handle.


Hi Claudia,

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been running into some trouble with the magnetic ring of the lens tool coming off. To help remove the printer head lens without the tool, you can follow the steps in the link below:


Also, can you reply with your shipping address and telephone number? I can use that to help you get a new lens tool sent out to replace the broken one.

I’ll look forward to your response.

Kind regards,
