my hotend was already upgraded when I got the printer but I'm not sure what kind it is.... it fits inside the original casing/carriage and Ive never disassembled that particular part. might have to anyway though,.. it tends to weep a bit while warming up and when the nozzle is above a part, moving between print areas. I get a tiny bit of stringing and I hate the dribbly tip.

Went with a E3D V6 clone. Just waiting to fit it once my current print finishes.

I'm also gonna play around with a 0.6mm nozzle as I'm printing some larger bits at the moment and they don't have many details

did you print your own enclosure or did it come with the kit?

does using the larger nozzle require different software or does the slicer take care of it?

Printed my own but wasn't impressed with the hotend got to many stopages so taken it off. Think I'm going to make my own.

So back on the stock hotend, with a 0.6mm nozzle on.

You can use any size nozzle you just adjust it in cura (or slicers ) and it takes care of it, It does cut down on some time. The three Yoda's picture, the two smaller one were printed on a 0.4mm the larger on on a 0.6mm the size is different as I changed it to run the tests. You do loose a bit of detail and layer lines are a bit more visable but for prototypes it's fine.

White print is a 0.6mm helmet I'm printing, knocked about 10hrs off the print time and there isn't much detail so should be fine.

Prime example of when a 3d printer is handy.

Cant get this timing tool anymore. After a quick search, conversion to STL and 2.5hrs printing I have a timing tool.

So many aswell run off another ten for other people

This is for a digital gauge for a bender we are building.

Red was the draft
Green finished mount. The tube holders on the bottom are inter changeable depending on tube size and printed as needed. They come with a single marker on, the base of the gauge holder has marking every 45° all the way round and 180° is marked off on 10° increments.

Tbh I just designed and printed it based off my mates instructions
