Hi,

Maybe someone with more know-how could answer this. I'm trying to mount a head holder for the dual extruder magnetic proyect created at http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/9657-a-different-multi-extrusion-approach-um-tool-printhead-changer/

My question it's... The aluminium part that it's holding the peek isolator. It's aluminium just because that area it's hot or it also plays as heat dissipation ? I ask because my thermal says it goes around 100-120C (the aluminium stays around 30-40) and if I changed it for wood I might be making a big mistake and increase a lot the chances of clogs.

Thanks

    Its hot and does aid in some heat dissipation/thermal mass.

    Its also fairly easy/cheap to machine and dimensionally stable/corrosion resistant, lightweight, etc...

    Wood has no business being around any source of heat. Wood is a big mistake. Unless you like fires.
