While at the Midwest RepRap Fest I picked up some nylon

Well, all the nylon, and some other stuff too.

I know nylon ought not be ran through my MakerGear hotends, but I water cool them so I should be able to keep the PEEK cool enough to be ok.

I am pumped to start printing parts.

  1. I have a maker gear hot end, with the plastic body. Nylon is too hot for the PEEK insulator. I made a water block that surrounds the PEEK to keep it cool.

    Kinda like water cooling a computer.

    I am going to do a write up on it soon, but a quick google search should find my first iteration. (On my phone right now)
