I made a water cooling adapter.

I've now solved my problem. I replaced the thermocouple and now everything is working again.

I also installed the 40w heater and can now print at 150mm/sec. I have found that I need to increase the temperature to print that fast. So the first layer is printed at (using eSun PLA+) 215C and then the body at 230C. Otherwise, the flow of the filament is too fast and is actually cooling the nozzle. At least that is my best guess. I'm getting very acceptable prints at 150mm/sec, acceleration of 3000, jerk of 12. Travel is 200mm/sec and acceleration of 2500.

I have the adapter from trae@greenlee.cc, and a kit of E3D hot-end parts from Matterhackers:
1 E3D heater block
1 titanium heat-break
1 24V 40W heater rod
K-type thermocouple
Hardened steel 0.4mm nozzle to kick things nozzle-wise off since I print a lot of NylonX & PETGCF for the robot(s) and I'm tired of shelling out for the Raise "hardened" ones(and V2 hot-ends, and....ugh).

I notice the thermocouple has these forked lugs on the end of them and the Raise thermocouple is just using bare wires.
I can trim those lugs off right ?
Is there a step-by-step posting somewhere in this thread I can look at ?
This seems pretty simple to do, on the order of the Bondtech upgrade, but it would be great to hear about any gotchas that are not immediately obvious from scrolling through the thread here.
Thanks!

Cool. All done!
It was a little intricate, but overall not hard. If this works out, I'll do the other hot-end too.

@ trae@greenlee.cc

Is there a way to order your E3D v6 adapter from the UK?

I seem to remember that at first it was not possible but I wonder if things have changed?

Many thanks

Ari

It's always been possible.
Just send me a dm or email.
