Extra Wire / plug

Recommended Posts

There is an still unused cable, nothing more. It ended with plug near the print head, near the other connections for the fans that are recognizable by the black fishnet hose.

We included some things in the design that arent used, as they costed very very little to add, but would allow us to give some upgrades later on. This is one of them and is intended for an extra hotend.

Uhm. No. This cable was a preperation for a safety circuit (combined with the 2 jumpers next to the endstop connections) if the safety is disconnected then the machine shuts off all "high power" drivers (heaters/steppers)

Now, in the end, we couldn't find a spot to put a proper temperature switch that would trip fast enough and be compact enough to fit in the head.

    • "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.
