Parts

Post by Scottylad7 » Sat May 31, 2014 2:04 pm

Hi all, CAn someone tell me what the part is called that feeds the filament through? Ive stripped one of the threads putting the heatsink on, (Been trying to fit the Recurus hot end) Just wondered if you can buy the metal housing that you screw the headtsink too.

Thanks

On the original Up Plus, the heatsink is screwed directly to the motor if I remember correctly. There's a nylon cover that goes over the feeder gear, which is attached to the feed motor shaft. Maybe you could post a photo of the part you're trying to describe. The "cable box" that Ming mentions is a printed plastic part.

YUp i jump the gun not knowing which version of printer OP has. I read "filament feed thru and printed part with threads" so i ASS U ME d it was the board and fan holder because the filament on "mine" feeds thru it and ive printed an extra one in case it breaks down and cant print a spare.

Julia is correct the HS is on the stepper motor
