E3D V6 Assembly : Prusa Mk3s Bear Upgrade

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 15 ก.ย. 2019
  • Key points -
    1) Nozzle and Heat break must be tightened against each other inside the block
    2) Gap between nozzle and block should be as less as possible. Maximum 0.2mm
    3) Make sure nozzle doesn't bottom out while inserting it in the block before it tightens against the heat break
    4) Always heat the hotend in order to remove or install any part in it.
    5) No part can be opened or removed while the hotend is in cold state.
    6) Always tight the nozzle while the hotend is at 280 degree celcius
    7) Do not use excessive force to tighten the nozzle. Otherwise it can break
    8) Always use collet clip in the collet in order to prevent ptfe from moving up and down
    9) Keep correct orientation of the aluminium block i.e. both the heater and thermistor screw should be accessible from the bottom.
    10) Properly tight the screws holding heater and thermistor while the hotend is hot at 280
    11) Always use shorter side of allen key to fully tight the screws.
    12) Be carefull not to strip head of the screws
    13) Always use thermal compound on the heatbreak

    Thank you for such a clear and easy to understand video! Seriously you did a great job of explaining everything (and that 3D printed slice was a great visual reference!)

      @3DPrintronics - 2 Would you mind sharing STL files for the hotend model? I teach 3D printing to young adults at a large museum and this model would be perfect for explaining how a printer works!

    Thank you so much for this video.
    I never even thought of laying the hotend on something like wood and heating it up to tighten the nozzle.

      Thank you for your kind words. This is the most basic troubleshooting step which in our opinion every 3d printer user must be aware of.

      Hello There can be many reasons leading to clogs in the hotend, if you can share some video or pics we might be able to help you out.

    I have followed the steps but I am getting an ERR: MinTemp when I try to heat up the nozzle. I have tried two thermistors and I get the same error. Am I missing something? Do I need to reset the firmware in the printer or something?

      Mintemp error can occur due to many reasons. Here is a very good article on Prusa website - help.prusa3d.com/en/article/mintemp-and-mintemp-bed_2169#:~:text=MINTEMP%20%2D%20problem%20with%20the%20hotend%20temperature%20readout.&text=This%20error%20can%20be%20caused,break%20in%20the%20thermistor%20wire.

    The cross section has the heater block upside down compared to how you said it should be.

      Block shown in PLASTIC MODEL is only for visual purpose. Actual position of block should be as shown in the METAL parts assembly. Thanks a lot

      Michael Korn Hi this is available on thingiverse by the designer named flowalistik. Will try and search for the stl and update.

    do you know if the e3dv6 that come with prusa mk3s have the thermal paste in the heartbreak?

      I just took my prusa hotend apart yesterday, and yes, it had thermal paste applied.

      The heat sink compound will increase the efficiency of heat transfer between the heatbreak and the hotend heatsink. We need the break (the top portion) to be as cold as possible so that the filament is not soft in this portion. That is why this heatsink compound is applied and this is also as per E3D manual. I think the Prusa hotends with the kit come unassembled. It is advisable to assemble them as per the E3D guide or you can also use this video as a guide. We assemble and use many hot ends in this way and they have always worked perfectly for our customers.

      Mintemp error can occur due to few reason, you can read more about it on prusa website - help.prusa3d.com/en/article/mintemp-and-mintemp-bed_2169

      It helps in maintaining a stable temperature of nozzle while the print cooling fan blows at full speed. It also keeps nozzle and block clean as the extruded plastic only sticks to the socks and can easily be cleaned.
