What hot end extruder setups, and heated beds do you use/recommend for you MP3DP v4 (or v3)?
For extruder hotend combos, looks like “E3D Hemera Dual Drive Extruder and Hotend Full Kit (24v)” are the most popular (based on MP3DP build logs). At $118 from MatterHackers
, and even more from amzn.
Need to print ABS and other high temp filaments, so Hemera’s more appealing for it’s max 300deg temp, compared to BiQU H2 V2 270deg. Although… $125 BIQU H2 V2S REVO Extruder 24V is 300deg capable, plus has Revo which is great even if changing nozzles frequently.
Also hoping @Heath_H’s 3 in 1 setup is working out for him. Like the idea of multi color/material setup without paying Bambu premium. However, for procrastinating me, maybe just getting something ‘stock’ working is the right next step.
I have picked the new H2 V2S Revo for my build. Changing nozzles is not something I have done lot of but figured I should start messing with it. I have H2’s on my Ender 3 and my 220mm2 Hypercube and love them.
I am planning on a 12x12 1/4 inch aluminum plate for the bed with a 235x235 120v heater on it. Will add a thermal fuse on the plate and put self-adhesive insulating foam on the bottom to serve as both insulation and a “soft mount” on the Extrusion T I am going to adapt from the Voron Trident build.
I would love to try an H2 or the new lighter Hemera. Adapters will be needed or edit the mount itself. Saving some moving mass would be nice, and in the case of the H2 I think it brings the nozzle closer to the rail which is even better.
I will say for a production stand point, Zero hemera issues and I work those things 24/7.
I am always a bit hesitant of the tall extruder stacks. The further your nozzle is from the rail the more exaggerated any error or ringing will be. I love a small compact package.
Hey Guys is been while.
I’m building the V4 very sssslllloooowwww… as work has been crazy.
Got the frame build, the bed support cut and modify the Extruder Carrier for the H2 V2. Also I design a new Fan Duct with 2 x 5015 fans and to mount the EBB42.
The Fan Duct I printed so fast that looks like shit, but it still a prototype, well everything I modified still a prototype
Here are some pictures:
Base on the Cad, I will have 2 mm of space from the Fan Duct to the belt in the back of the machine.
What sucks is that I’ve been traveling so much that I don’t have time to finish.
Since mid-December, 4 overseas and 16 domestic trips.
