Printer Extruder

HintLightbulb.png Hint: Note the small extruder gear shown is MK8- we are using an MK7. Note: Supervolcano nozzle has heat transfer issues, so we are using a 3 mm E3D v6 heat break with success (6mm threads on both sides - note that E3D v6 has 6 mm on the nozzle side, 7 mm on the cold side. Can also test Titan Aero v6 1.75 mm - which appears to have 6 mm thread on both sides. 3mm titan aero is definitely 6 mm thread on each side: see E3D_Titan_Aero_Extruder#CAD

Notes: Still missing from final assembly by MJ: fan, heat sink heat exchanger, MK7 gear, spring. In final CAD of extruder assy, heat break does not stick out of the heat sink. In reality, it sticks out about 3 mm. Where is the discrepancy if the heat break is 25 mm long?

HintLightbulb.png Hint: Amazing, works out of box. Improvements: raise tip next to carriage. Double-sided attachment. Probe on right, not left, to optimize print area
