Hot end pack washer

Recommended Posts

Hiya. I just got the hot end pack in, and theres an extra part that I dont recognize. Yes there are several references to the little washer, but no instructions on where it goes. It only fits over the threads of the nozzle, but in so doing, only leaves 3 or 4 threads for the collar to screw onto. That concept doesnt agree with me, especially when you consider it pushes up against the spring by that extra 2 or 3 mm. How about a little help there? Thanks

Awesome , thanks for that info!!!! I already crushed it, because yeah, it also happens to fit over the threads of the hotend. Those folks at UM should have made note of that. Thats really a good idea now because of The Olsen block I installed. It has two little slots to push the heater element And temperature sensor out case they get stuck which Would be really bad if they got clogged

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
