Thanks so much sthone, that would be wonderful!... you probably won't need one either.
Apologies to all for the lag in replies, still under the mod's approval each time.
Thanks, and yeah I know ... I tend to indulge my love of industrial design when I build these things. But for the initial temp testing once I've received the V4 I'll just throw on a plate as you suggest.Being a brutalist kind of guy, I'd skip the fancy cylinders-on-ribs-with-fillets and go for a triangular-ish flat plate, but your design definitely wins on stylin'.
Hehe, sounds as if we may be of similar mind on this.I won't even stick a toe in those waters ... [grin]
I still don't understand the point of the extruder fan or what it's suppose to be for. I get back in the day they kept the heat from traveling up the longer hot ends but now with the V4 that's not even possible and the fan just points at the filament drive and extruder gear. The only thing I can see it accomplishing is cooling the stepper motor maybe? Anyone want to enlighten me on it's function nowadays?insta wrote:And, sthone, I actually added my fans back in. I *think* it made the printer more reliable, but it's certainly not incredibly noticable one way or another.
