HAHAHAH, that's old mod, nothing smart really ... just a multiturn pot and a switch to control the temp...
the "kinder-egg" on the line .. I have 3 of them, 2 between the spool and the ptfe tube, first one is full of silika gel to dry out the filament (doesn't do much but doesn't hurt neither), second one is a cleaning sponge, in theory you can put some oil there get filament smootly trough ptfe tube and trough the extruder but is not really necessary with filament I use, second egg is between tube and extruder it's clean sponge, should be removing excess oil, but since there's no oil it's just a second dust remover nothing else ..
left printed part on the picture mounted on the fan cooling the extruder is there to catch "fresh" air and not pull in the hot air rising from the extruder, the whole assembly there for cooling the extruder is adapted, there's no door to cool the print (I do 99.9% ABS), there's alu foil to deflect heet ... and the fan is a new maglev one, quieter, can move more air, last longer especially in "hot" conditions..
the central part is 2 parts, inner shroud that goes over motor (that is glued with more then 20 memory heatsinks) and outside shroud... the inner shroud is held to outer one with screws from taht maglev fan on the right side and then outer shroud clicks on the top plate ..
the top box changed, originally I had there electronics with small oled display showing "original" temperature (what UP! firmware sees) and "real" temperature (what is real temperature of the hot end) .. there's a 10 turn 32R pot there that's "dropping the temp" and a switch across it to "disable the drop", I removed the lcd and the pcb from there when Studio came as no need for that drop any more, the pot and the switch I left there (they work) but the monitoring electronics and lcd I took for another project :D...
I think that's the whole picture explained ... any questions?
btw this printed parts, I modified them a bit but originally they are NOT my designs!!
1. the wind barrier (what heats the extruder and has no door for PLA): http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:253687
2. what pushes on top of that fan to gather fresh air: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:253694
3. the part that goes over motor and cools it: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:390993
4. additional part to duct air from cooling the motor but I'm not using that one: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:413198
