Felix 1.0 -> 2.0 Hot-end

Post by markus_kyroe »

Hi guys,

How do I get this nut out of the hot-end (see picture)? It was there in my Felix 1.0 but as I'm upgrading to 2.0 it is not supposed to be there anymore. Can I de-assemble the hot-end? Any guides - how to? Don't want to brake anything :oops:

Thanks in advance,
Markus

plastic part can be unscrewed on both sides.
just keep both parts with grip tools.

I would not recommend to do that (upgrade to 2.0 extruder), first if you do not assemble the extruder parts correctly (we don't have the torque specs) you will start to experience all kind of extruder jams due to the gap (or lip, according to how you tight them) formed at where the aluminum and peek part meets

And its been reported that because the lack of a "socket" for the extruder to hold it in place, it slips and rotates on the new plastic extruder carrier.

I found no problems taking the extruder apart, and putting it back together, even without a torque wrench :)
