M3 cooler on the M2

M3Cooler50mm-1.jpg MG finally released the M3 cooler STL's so I thought I'd give it a try on the M2. I enlarged the cooler to 126% so it would fit the M2 stock 50mm fan and had to make a quick bracket to fit my modify extruder drive. The new cooler definitely localizes the air flow right at the noz...

I find it a little weird that it...

Re: Extrude stops extruding (not jammed), consistent temp issues (m2)

You can get these separate you just have to ask for them as they are not listed on the site. (they were about $15 la...

Re: PETG your favorite brand?

I use eSUN PETG and it works awesome. There is an entire thread on here too on what settings to use.
