N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

Postby detroitus » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:18 pm

I recently ordered a new hot end assembly to keep as a spare for my N2 and when it arrived it had this lovely silicon sock on it. Pleasant surprise!

So my question is, why are these not yet available to purchase on their own if they are being sent out with new hot ends? And when will they be? I'd love to get some for the hot ends I am already running as well as keep a couple extras on hand.

Second the question!
Would it fit a nozzle for the N2 Dual?
Are they just a shipping implement?

I cannot speak for the second question- that's all them on how they sell or bundle them, but the first one, the picture and the entire topic is, this is a brand new V2 N2 hotend (dual or single) so yes, it fits your N2 dual.

The N series hotends are starting being installed with this new cover from now. And we will open the sale of these covers to be ordered separately very soon.

Awesome. Thanks, Vicky! I think many of us are looking forward to being able to order these items individually.
