Hi there,
thank you for this great design, works very well!

However I was experiencing a couple of issues I wanted to share.

  1. After I installed this, I noticed increased underextrusion with certain filaments. It was due to the spring tension maybe a bit less than with the stock extruder. So I added some washers to increase the spring tension, which worked fine!

  2. I printed everything in PLA which was probably a bad idea. The Stepper gets so hot sometimes, that the entire base bent and the screws almost melted through the base. You recommended PETG which I obviously ignored ;) but since PETG has 90° vs 50° of PLA, printing in PETG will certainly be the way to go!
