i see more promising hot ends on your website that seem to isolate the cold end from the hot end better hence they could probably solve my clogging problem.
for instance: http://www.geeetech.com/metal-shortdist ... p-794.html
is this hotend or any other ones compatible with Acrylic Reprap Prusa I3 Pro B?
thanks

i received the new hotend with the 0.5mm nozzle a few days ago and it solved the clogging problem. The first print wasn't so successful though as the object moved on the heatbead so maybe 90C degree wasn't hot enough for the object to stick but this is another topic.

You could try running a small pin drill into the tip when its hot to try to break up the blockage but if that doesn't work you will need to take the hot end apart and clean the nozzle out from the inside. These Makergear hot ends are probably good when they work but total rebuilds when they fail. I know this isn't any help but in my design, where it uses a heater block, I can simply unscrew the nozzle and clean it.
