Re: Converting V2 Hotends to E3D-V6

Update... Basic install involves the following steps. Machine the groove mount end of the E3D-V6 to the smaller dia with 4 flat sides to accommodate mounting to the stock N2 mount. Drill the stock N2 Teflon liner to accept the Teflon tube that mounts to the E3D cold side. Adjust the Z limit switch,...

Re: Extrudeur stepper driver voltage

update: i just talked to Martin at Bondtech, he told me that i should be measuring in DC
also, my screwdriver wasnt turning the screw very well, and it was hard to tell at night, but this morning, i got it dialed in. it doesnt take much to change that voltage!

any benefits to non-wear resistant nozzles?

i'm changing out my nozzle on my left extruder for a wear-resistant nozzle, and i was wondering why do the printers not just come with them? i decided to only do the left one since i use the right exclusively for support (HIPS/PVA) is there any benefit to the brass nozzle that i'm not aware of? than...

Re: Adhesion Issues

thank you for any help! Too close to bed. Pressure builds up in the nozzle and squirts out eneven. And you will get to much plastic in some places as your nozzle will hit. That and probably an uneven bed. ill check in that out, i guess i hadn't used the "PLA V2 HOT END" profile, i had use...
