now wheres that printer...
haha. How does it look Cambo?
just like the photos,, really nice craftsmanship.
What site is it?
What did you order, thats in those pictures? What do you recommend and why? Do you think I should wait to see how you print with it before ordering one?
those are pictures of the all metal hot end kit un-assembled from ed3 online.
why? so i can print with a wider range of materials. due to limitation of peek hot ends being around 240C. this hotend will do 400C+ http://e3d-online.com/ourshop/prod_2567052-E3Dv4-All-metal-HotEnd-3-Week-PreOrder.html
a lot of people already using with great success.. just research the forums. This one should be a direct fit for the robo because it uses the standard jhead.
Can the resistors that come with the robo handle the high temp(and can they achieve it) or does the all-metal ones you just got come with different ones?
it comes with everything you need in the kit.
it doesn't use a resistor. it comes a 40w heater cartridge. as stated in the link listed above. I wont be using the stock resistor with this hot end.
Sorry, didn't really follow the link...
Thanks for the info. Seems interesting.
Let us know how it performs!
performs great from what I'm reading from other users. Whenever the printer gets here peek hot end is coming off for this all metal replacement.
Woot! They're UK based too!
Cambo, let me know how it is! I'd love to get one...but want to wait to see how it goes with the Robo!
first print seems to be looking good, gonna be trying nylon next.
Looks great, Cambo! Thanks for the pic... Dean
I picked one up. I was hoping they'd have the assembled ones for sale, but still just in kit form (though you can make the website allow you to order an assembled one if you change the order you answer the drop downs. =P)
How tricky was the assembly, Cambo?
i was experimenting with this thing and parts from the qubd hotend will also fit the ED3. Nice to know ehh.
the stainless tube from the qubd hotend is little more beefy and slightly different, not saying it would make it any better
but i'm going to try it and see how it works out, the stainless tube on the stock ED3 is really thin, and easy to bend. (I did it on accident, but luckily i bought two)
here it is assembled with the qubd parts.. again might not make this better, just experimenting to see how it works out. since i bent one of my ED3 stainless tubes.
If this works out I'll have a place in the USA to get direct fit replacement parts.

assembly is easy, just be careful you dont over tighten the stainless steel tube. Also you may have to drill out the hole for the heater cartridge, some of them dont fit perfectly and need to be widened because of manufacturing inconsistency of the heater cartridge or hotend parts.
more sample prints from ed3 hotend on the rostock, still some fine tuning but overall really satisfied with the results. printed in abs.
