When your hot end is heated, can you still move/rotate the aluminum heater block?

I suspect you didn't tighten it enough when assembling, leaving some room for movement and leakage.

You could try to tighten it some more with pliers and a small wrench when it is hot.

(when it is cold you won't be able to get it moving).

Is your brass pipe installed the right way?

The wiki hot end has been updated, please look at some pictures to see if yours is the same.

    • "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.
