electrical modular Hotend for UM2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I´am new to this community, and I startet with my UM2 1 year ago.

I am a big fan of the UM and this community as well. There are so many creative ideas in this community.. It´s really cool!!!

I want to make some experiments with the hotend and therefore I have to change often the nozzle.

Because of this fact I have some questions:

Is there already a project in this community that I didn´t find, that describe a modular (mechanical and electrical as wall) hotend so I can build this for my own?

I thought about an electrical connector to plug off all the electrical stuff and an mechanical interface to plug off the rest of the hotend so that i cann fully remove the hotend. I hope that the wording is right.

I mean this fully part with wires:

The second question is: Is there a bundle where I can buy the heater cartridge, nozzle, the temp sensor and electrical circuit to heat up the hotend without the um2 to take some experiments?

Is there a datasheet of the heater cartridge as well available? I didn´t found this on the internet (maybe I searched withe the wrong buzz-words).

If there are any informations that can help me in my doing, it would be very cool.

Thank you for helping. :)

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
