I have made one using red rtv silicone and let it cure for 12 hours but it smells bad while printing pla at 192C. Has anyone experienced the same issue?

There's a leftover residue of vinegar like substance from some types of silicone, usually will evaporate within an hour or so of printing

FYI... I have just posted this on your Version2 model, before realising that you had a Version3... apologies for the duplication, but i felt it would be useful for people using your files.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to develop this part. I have one comment on your description though. I would highly recommend using latex free gloves, either Nitrile or Vinyl. The latex can inhibit the cure of silicone and could potential leave you with a sticky mess instead of a cured hotend sock. Other than that, well done on a great design and good luck with future product

I don t anderstand what files i have to print. Can you say me please, it is for my ender 3 .

Depends if you're using the original nozzle or an e3d replacement nozzle.

If you're using the original, use the mk8 files.

Silicone Sock for E3D Clone Heatblocks

Seems like a lot of trouble to go through when you can upgrade to an all metal hotend, get better manufactured metal, and get a sock all from Micro Swiss. https://store.micro-swiss.com/collections/creality-cr-10/products/all-metal-hotend-kit-for-cr-10

It's all so much trouble, hire a neighbor to cut your grass and service your wife too. ^^^ these comments should just be deleted and banned

if they haven't changed since I last saw them, the socks they put out don't cover all the way down to the tip of the nozzle, which is part of the appeal of these for me. Keeps filament from building up on the nozzle, keeps it nice and clean.

Also these are compatible with the Microswiss version, in case you were wondering
