    Ooh looks nice, I wonder how it will stack up against the Hexagon for performance

    The improved nozzle should greatly improve on it.

    E3D felt like the next upgrade to do, so I went ahead and ordered a v6. Will be interesting to see if I will figure out how to install it..!

    The installation looks a lot neater than the V5. no kapton tape (copper gasket adhesive). Very clean.
    That nozzle is interchangeable with the V5. I just ordered a bunch of full kits and a ton of nozzles. Should have them in stock next week.

    @Printed Solid, what would be the price? I'm thinking of ordering directly from them - with 10% discount that comes to $75 right now...

    Are you just upgrading yours or buying it for a new printer? I think that the nozzle alone will make a huge difference.

    Mike - I'll throw some into the package for free. I've yet to see evidence beyond hearsay that anyone has managed flexible filaments on a bowden, but if anyone can do it I'd put money on it being you.

    Printed Solid, my current E3D v5 is working quite well, but it's always nice to have a spare :) Haven't thought about another printer yet, but that's a possibility in the future... :)

    I'll also add that my E3D v5 is working great and has never jammed for PLA or ABS.

    Oh great and wise ones... Anyone have concerns with the 1.75 version having a ptfe liner? I have had heat creep on my V5 which doesn't have the ptfe tune....

    Any thoughts from those wiser than me?

    I wonder that a little myself. The intent of the design is that the heatsink setup is keeping the PTFE cool enough.

    What printed solid said. My PTFE bowden tubes already press into the heatsink, a little more shouldn't hurt anything. If the heatsink is not hot to the touch it certainly won't damage ptfe.

    Hello all,

    i have a question for you when my e3dv6 was here what modification do i do on the robo 3d. I know the firmware must be updated with the new min max temperature but where is it ?? And i'm also afraid for the wiring on my robo is there a tutorial for that ???

    And the last question must i do to remove the original fan to put the e3d fan ???

    The PTFE also eliminates the need for a completely smooth bore and reduces friction as well.

    Under the Configuration.h file there's this section:

    Code:
    // When temperature exceeds max temp, your heater will be switched off.
    // This feature exists to protect your hotend from overheating accidentally, but *NOT* from thermistor short/failure!
    // You should use MINTEMP for thermistor short/failure protection.
    #define HEATER_0_MAXTEMP 295    //mk
    #define HEATER_1_MAXTEMP 275   
    #define HEATER_2_MAXTEMP 275
    #define BED_MAXTEMP 105
    
    Change the Heater_0 max temp to 295 or so.

    For wiring use this image as a reference: http://reprap.org/mediawiki/images/6/6d/Rampswire14.svg

    The original fan is a parts fan, you'll need to print a new holder to fit with the E3D: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:186027 I believe http://melodybliss.org/robo3d/ has an e3d tutorial as well

    You can wire the e3d fan to the points here: http://i.imgur.com/xk0TBie.jpg red and green in the picture
