@breezer,
the copper cooling element weighs 19.4g. I strongly recommend using the recommended heat sinks! The one you showed is too heavy and oversized.

You got PM ;)



I don’t got a message, maybe the reason is I am a new member in this Forum?
Maybe you can sent me here your E-Mail?

Sorry for this complications.

Hi @all

I'd like to set up the whole water cooling too, but unfortunably the links to thingivers end in 404 :(

Can someone send me a PM with a Step-file of the heatsinks (for the nozzle) and the STLs for the other parts of the solution from Markus?

Is there a summary of the documentation in from of a PDF? Where the needed Parts and and a guide for installation is sum up on some pages?

I really appreciate all the affort you guys put into this project.

Best,
Fabian

PS: Greetings from Germany :)

Sorry for double post.

Thanks to Markus for your PM, obviously I can't text back because I'm not active enough to unlock the feature of private messaging (I can't see any files attached to your message, Markus).

So I hope 2 posts are enough ><'

I have finally received all the part for water cooling and ready for install. Now i cant find any of the STL,s that at one time where on thingiverse. Can some one steer me in the the right direction. If anybody is looking there is a guy in the US that has in stock copper and aluminum cnc water cooling heat sinks found him on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI7lYC ... q_9pd8yPww
Thank you all for help.

I have two parts in order, i can sent you, if you want to build liquid cooling.
I have one in Alu and one in Cooper.

I think I have the same problem with some filament on N2. I'm drawing heat exchanger for N2 watercolling system. I will print in PLA for test.


@guigui4913, you're welcome! :)

Update:

My water cooling project is coming to an end. The water coolers for the two extruder motors arrived today - fortunately 3 weeks earlier than expected. The fit and workmanship is very good. For the price you don’t make things yourself. Tomorrow I’ll plug everything in and take pictures.

Here is the link to the parts:

Hello Markus64,

I am also from Germany and really interested in a replica of your solution. Could you maybe contact me to make the whole thing a little more efficient for me?

@ Markus64: Hello Markus, can you please contact me via PM. I am also from germany and want to rebuild your liquid cooling solution.

Thanks.

Its done thank you for all the help and inspiration. I wanted the system to be self contained so i can easily move it around. As you can see i made the ducts to pull fresh air across the radiator and back out. I mounted the pump on the back left pillar. I put the air ducts in the place i did for cosmetics thought it looked cool. If I where to do it again i wouldn't mount it to the middle of the glass but attached to base of the machine so when i have the take the glass off its free of the hoses. It was a hassle to install on glass then install glass back on the machine and because if that i had to leave the hoses long. I also installed a power switch on the front so i don't have to roll the machine around to get that switch in the back. Now i have to start calibrating. I have owned this for 6 months and have had jamming issues with carbon nylon and PLA thats why i did this. I really hope i can get good prints out of this now. :roll:

„Cool“ version, there are no 2 systems out there using the same liquid cooling components

Hello,
Like many, I had printing problems on large PC parts leading to the destruction of the bed.
I am very interested in this change but still hesitates to do it because all the parts are not necessarily easy to choose. In any case your modifications are very clean and well done, congratulations

That’s it, let’s go, I’ve started to supply parts, I think I’ll do it step by step so I don’t get it wrong. I also saw accessories that might be interesting like a temperature display with alarm. I think it is not really useful but a nice gadget :D

It seems that there are a lot of German builders, are there French too?

Installation is progressing… I still have to improve the flow of the tubes (I will certainly redo the plate to put the valves vertically) and receive the heat exchanger to install it.

Hi to all watercooling experts! These are great solutions. As I am addicted to watercooling I am eager to do this mod, too. The only question I have and I could not find an answer in the whole thread - how about the costs, especially the two heat exchangers? As I am from Germany, the German colleagues probably could give the best estimate here :-)

I ordered 4 pcs of Markus64 heat exchangers, because of the price difference. If somebody needs a set of the heat exchangers I would sell a set for 175.-€ exclusive shipping (I am from Germany). If you are interested please PM.

Hi Markus,
Sandro from Rome.
I have read Your thread that is really very interesting.
If You can, I have some question to understand better the problems that You have with this printer.

1) What is the production Year of Your printer?
Because I have read that before the actual production, the precedent has some different part on the extruders, the last is bigger.

2) the eventual problems when You print are only with PLA; when the print is more than xx hours, when You print whit abs, ASA, TPU....

Because I have seen Your solution, but I would like to understand if I will have the same problems, (my printer is new) and for now I have perfect print (now) perhaps if I have to make some print (long time) I will arrive at the same situation.

3) The PLA are You using is premium quality PLA or Lite? To understand if there is a problem also with the quality of PLA You have chosen.

Thanks a lot

Sandro

Hi Sandro,
please try the following:
Send a print file with at least 20 hours of printing time to your new Pro2. Filament PLA, PETG or whatever you want. If your printer passes this task properly, you do not need water cooling. ;)

Thanks, Markus

Perfect, the bunny (huge bunny) for my daughter was 36 hours to print and no one problem.
I'm happy...

On my side I had no problem with long printing with PLA (>20H) but it was different with prints with PC (extruder 260° and bed 100°)... still waiting my heat exchanger but my installation is almost finished...
