    From Ali-Express measures 3 mm x 15 mm. Note that this is a standard Marlin type 1 thermistor not the same one that E3D uses. It fits the newer E3D hot zones.

    Reseller is TriangleLab [trianglelab.org], Thermistor Cartridge. Specs say it supports up to 350°C measurement.

    I misplaced my Hexagon, so let me look for it before I answer that.

    Thanks, changed the wording on the OP. Just another reason to dislike the Hexagon.

    Maybe, the can thermistor is (I think) a little larger, but with some thermal grease that might work. Heck, it might work without the grease.

    @supercazzola I think the hole is just over 3 mm, @Geof measured it, so you cannot tap the hole to fit an M3 stud thermistor. Nor can you drill out the remaining section to use an E3D compatible one since the placement on the Hexagon makes it impossible.

    honestly you can just buy the thermistors from Robo for the hexagon. I think when I bought them for the R1+ machines (maybe 10 of them? cant recall exactly) they were like 5.00 each. Figure the entire hotend is 50.00 in the store, the thermistor isn't expensive.

    If you want to get crazy you can drill a hole on the other side of the block, thread it, use a stud thermistor and extend the wires to reach the downtown board? :D (dont be crazy ;) )
