Extruder section

Recommended Posts

In the parts list for the extruder build it mentions a small piece of plumbers tape, now I take it that I have to supply that as is not in the kit? Yet at no point in the instructions does it mention using it, is it required now?

i removed all of this sealing tape... also on V1 nozzles.

Maybe thers a product that can sustain more heat.

because it tends to degrade under high temperature into a hard brittle substance that can clog your nozzle..

i just tighten the PEEK and Nozzle realy hard. by hand.. else you could break it.

also putting som ABS trough the system will close some gaps in a dirty way..

but i dont recomend this.

    • "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.
