    Your only solution is to get a generic 12v Hexagon (from Amazon or any other vendor) and then modify the connectors to work on the wires. Probably reusing the stock ones is easiest (splice the old connectors onto the new harness)

    is this the correct one? or can you provide a amazon link?
    There is a standard and a AO item
    • 1x 1.75mm all metal Hexagon hotend
    • 1x Nozzle 0.4mm
    • 1x 12v 30w heater cartridge
    • 1x EPCOS 100K thermistor (type 1)

    Yes, that is a standard one.

    Bear in mind the thermistor may be physically different, as in a smaller or larger canister (so it will not be interchangeable with the stock one) but the TYPE of the thermistor for Marlin is the same so the firmware will not need editing.

    Also the connectors for the wiring will likely be different as well.

    The only place to get a direct replacement that requires nothing other than plugging it in is from Robo (if they have any in stock). What you have listed is the closest you can get to stock and will require a little bit of work to use it, but not a huge deal.

    Good luck.

    This:

    #define TEMP_SENSOR_0 1 //robo


    Does not have to change
