Extruder heating rates and masses

Postby 100ideas » Thu Oct 18, 2012 4:55 pm

Miloh dropped by my lab earlier today to install the new Winchester extruder assembly. He also brought a hot-end with a power-resistor heating element. We decided to compare the heating rates and the mass of both. (Note: one insulating cloth ring was left on the nichrome hot-end when its mass was measured.)

Attached are the screen shots of Repetier measuring the heating rate of the hot-ends.

Hey moderators, the photos of the mass of the hot ends exceed the upload limit of 256 Kb, so are hosted at dropbox. Increase the upload limit to avoid broken links.
