Plywood Hot End Replacement - Recommend?

Postby thebrianmanley » Thu Jul 09, 2015 2:48 pm

My Plywood hot end bit the dust. I tried ordering a G2 but I guess those didn't work out so well for this model.

Any advice on purchasing just the hot end without the entire extruder mechanism?

Thanks!
Brian

I run Hexagon hot ends on most of my plywood machines. They work good for me, but also consider the E3D v6. I think either one is a drop-in replacement, but you do have to assemble them.

Regarding the E3D - Not quite a drop in, but not too bad. I had a post here on the process but it seems to have vanished. Here is my rough how-to guide:

I'm going to give the E3D v6 a first crack. Thanks for your advice!

Ah. Thanks a million for posting that Ken! I had no idea it would be that involved. It should arrive tomorrow, so fingers crossed :)

On page 7 of that (awesome) pdf, it references a better firmware supplied by "liquid", but the link is dead. Is that still available anywhere?

Is there a suitable replacement for the original hot end nozzle?
