    Also i tested new DragonFly hotend on other printer and maybe move to it skipping E3D V6 will be much better.

    Hi, its quite simple, just remove the original hot end by loosening the collar bolt, and than swop over heater and thermistor to v6 block and fit v6 in place. Caution to the wise be ultra careful with the thermistor and heater, when and if they break you will need to solder up and make use of the existing connectors, I ended up buying a few of those connectors, someone posted what they are on here, in fact I would say don't start till you have the replacements on hand and maybe cut and splice the connectors to a new heater and thermistor.

    Thanks... Do you have a link to the post where the model of these connectors is mentioned? I definitely need to buy them.
    And I do not plan to change anything till Hexagon hotends run out of stock ;)
