A new, blue threaded V6 heatsink intended as an alternative to groove mounting. The same excellent thermal performance, now with easier mounting.
An alternative to Groovemount
There are a couple of major flaws with groove mounting (or previous standard HotEnd mounting style):
Fit is highly dependent on the quality of part machining.
Fit can become loose from repeated removal and refitting.
To fight these problems, we're beta-releasing a new, blue, screw-threaded heat sink. Threading also brings some benefits of its own:
It's reliable and repeatable to machine.
Wear due to repeated removal and refitting is not an issue.
It offers more versatile mounting options, e.g. through a threaded plate.
It offers the exact same thermal performance as a standard V6 heatsink and is already in use by companies like Duet3D. We'd like you to try it next, and if you have any feedback then get in contact!
Ships with M12 nut, thermal paste, and collet with clip.
