Re: Heater block replacement time?

Just send fbrc8 a email, they can definitely sell it to you as a spare part even if it is not listed on their website.

Re: Heater block replacement time?

Yep, you should get a UM2+ fan shroud, a Olsson block, TFM coupler and the rigid spacer from the UM2+.

A alternative to the UM2+ fan shroud is printing Labern's fan shroud in a high-temp material, it even performs slightly better than the UM2+ metal shroud.

Re: Heater block replacement time?

You do not require a motherboard upgrade to use the UM2 head, just a Pt100 amplifier, replacing the linear regulator on board with a switching one, and a small rewire to feed the controller board with 24V, so about 25$ or so. http://e3d-online.com/PT100-Amplifier-Board I have done this mod, it works...

Re: Automatic smoke/fire detector

Re: Zero Gravity Direct Drive Extruder

Have you thought about using off-the-shelf spline shafts instead of the square shaft and the printed adapters?

Re: Super hard nozzles - Test pilots

Yep, the stratasys fortus "tips" (what they call their nozzles) are all in the 100$+ range, so this is not the most expensive, but it might be the most expensive that fits a standard M6x1 thread ;)
