In the former version of the extruder I had 2 transparent washers on each side of the extruder idler shaft. I skipped those for this installation, while they weren't listed. After a few days of printing I decided to put the 2 washers back on the shaft. And to my opinion it gives a much better movement of the idler. Without the washers it wiggled during loading and ended up a little bit to the back of the printer. With the 2 washers the loading is without the idler wiggling and during normal printing the idler seems to be straight opposite the gear.
The 4th hole of the Noctua fan is, like the other 3, “self-tapping”. This makes it uneasy to tighten the Fan-shroud. Should this 4th hole not be wide enough to make the screw only pull on the nut in the Fan-shroud?
The nut is hard to reach with M3x10. The pulling trick with a longer screw, only worked after indenting the screws head in the part. Only pulling up the nut wasn't enough for me.
The six plates seem to have a side where the protective foil is removed and a side where the foil is (still) present. So the instruction “Make sure the surface with removed protective foil is facing towards you.” could be interpreted as if the side with the foil (still) present should be facing away from the maker. I guess this is not what is meant by this instruction. Maybe replace it with “Remove the protective foil and let this side face towards you.”
Upon till now the only scary part …
With very little play in the wiring loom for the heating cartridge, taking out the V6 was a nasty task. Also because I kept doubting I was in the right part of the manual. The pictures being different from my B7/R3 extruder :-(
But with a little shiver she came lose at last.
Is it possible to extend this tutorial for working with soluble support? Or is there an other tutorial like this about that subject :-)
