@badincite depends what they are printed with. I printed all of my hotend mounts using carbon fiber nylon, which is strong enough to take any collision. If the metal ones are inexpensive, I would go with that.
Looks like my bad. Accessed the board and I was plugged into E1 instead of E0. Extruder now feeding but not laying down. Noz =215 bed =75 speed= 50 don't know what to do with z setting .2mm noz gap. stock pla trying to print bengy. nothing sticking. thoughts?? Thanks, Joe
You describe the exact situation I find myself in today. Recognizing your post is nearly 2 years old, I wonder what printer you chose and whether you were satisfied by its performance. Please let us know. I'm ready to pull the trigger on a good printer but would appreciate an objective review.
