Watch the assembly video from the OP and make sure you followed all the steps
Yes, I watched that video several times.
I am fairly confident it's put together properly.
You may need to re tighten the heater block while everything is screaming hot.
Looks like the heat break is not tight enough into the heat block.
It should be tightened cold, then tightened again hot.
The pictures to me indicate it wasn't installed correctly. Probably the hot tightening like Mark and Stephen suggested
Alright, so I tightened the nozzle while it was heated and the heat break snapped.
Can I reuse the one from the hexagon head? Or do I need to get a new one?
You will need an E3D heatbreak. But you can get individual parts for those (unlike the Hexagon).
Upon further investigation I am unable to get the broken heat break out of either end. So I purchased a new kit from @Printed Solid
They do also sell the heat breaks.
This one should work properly.
Thanks for the help,
If it was hot torqued in then getting it out could be a bit of trouble...
Left hand drill bit and an easy-out would be your only hope.
Does anyone know what the stock thermistor sensor number would be?
Epcos is 1
Just to clarify, in the firmware you posted for the R1. I need to change in the "Configuration.h" the TEMP_SENSOR_0 5 to TEMP_SENSOR_0 1 ?
If you're using the original hexagon hot end (or maybe Jhead) then it uses an epcos thermistor. Change it to 1
If you're using the E3Dv6 with a semitec thermistor, change it to 5.
The epcos is about twice the size of the semitec
I am using the E3d v6 with the stud thermistor from @Printed Solid https://www.printedsolid.com/shop/e3d/stud-thermistor/
They had told me the setting should be the same as if it were the stock thermistor.
Ah yes, According to that it's an Epcos, so a 1 is good.
@Mike Kelly Do you mind if I edit the original with a note that if you're using a stud thermistor, you don't need to update the firmware?
Go for it
