UM2 Hot End Pack part

Recommended Posts

Before you re-attach the fan shroud put it in the hole that the nozzle will stick through - from above.  Once the nozzle is sticking through the hole it should be held in by the nozzle block.

It's never happened to me but sometimes a part comes loose during a print and although usually it's knocked over, sometimes it is stuck to the nozzle and carried around on the bed.  If in addition to these 2 bad things happening you ignore the print for an hour, you will get a massive glob of liquid filament and some of that can get up through into the head and clog everything up.  This tiny ring prevents this.  But again - 3 things have to go wrong for this to happen so it's a bit rare.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
