UM2 Hot end assembly

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have just replaced the complete hot end on my UM2, so thats nozzle, teflon spacer, hot end isolator and spring.

Previously when re assembling the components I have screwed the hot end isolator into the nozzle as far as it can go. This time with the new components I have noticed that if I do this I then have problems with extrusion when inserting the new material. I slackened off the hot end isolator by about a 1/4 turn, this resulted in the filament flowing.

Are there any detailed guides on what the various settings/gaps should be on re assembly of the hot end?

Thanks

First choice should be the Assembly manual.

The interesting part begins on page 55/56:

 

turn the hot-end isolater until the teflon isolator part creates a gap of at least 1 mm and the bottom of the hot-end isolater is just not touching the messing part

    • "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.
