Today how to assemble our Hotend in V1.0.
First you need all parts of the Hotend:
Screw everything loose together. Then take the wenches to screw everything tight.
Be careful and remember after tight comes loose.
Now take a bench vice. Put some filament into the peek-isolator to avoid squeezing the isolator together! Although take a piece of paper to make sure that the isolator don’t gets damaged.
Now where everything is fixed you need the heat-resistor and the temperature sensor.
I isolate both with kapton. So i could be sure tthat there is no short in the circuit.
Ready for use. Some tips for starting the hotend for the first time, i will give you in a few days!
