UM2 hotend 9.4mm & 8.4mm adjustable spacer

Recommended Posts

It's untested because I have a long weekend ahead. But it should just work. It has two positions 8.4mm distance and the other 9.4mm distance. I printed it on PLA-tec. Also on 9.4mm distance you can see through if the Bowden it's on.

Printed on black PLA-tec (110-120 heat resistant) using window cleaner + 1 hairspray puff before heating the bed for adhesion. 0.1 layers 50mm/s fans full at layer 30ish.

If you use the i2k 1mm you need a different spacer if you want to keep the nozzle on the same height/not touching the metalfancap.

Also if you play with the coupler or want to use two different heights (dual?) without using a spring, then this helps (not my design but the one from anders).

    • "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.
