You do not need an enclosure with PETG and you should not be using a parts fan with PETG.

Re: Heatbreak Barrel Material

I don't recall ever seeing that part on the site and, I believe they were always made with a tube and max temp is 300C. I have never had an issue with gummed up barrel.

I personally have not upgraded OP I use with my M2 since installing it in 2019 as I don't use plugins and all is still working just fine. However that would be the route I would take..

Re: Installing an E3D V6 today, what do I need to know?

Hey Helifrek How did the hot end upgrade turn out? You mentioned that you had to print a mount. Would you mind posting the file you used? Maybe a couple pictures would be helpful. I been haveing some issues printing with PETG and I think the V4 hot end is just not up to the job. No, print PETG all ...
