how did you wire up the new print head; don't they have different connectors? If they are the same please link me to the print head you bought.

Sorry that was years ago on a printer I do not own.

Does anyone know how to assemble this on the 3D printer? I don't want to risk breaking any parts for my HDL printer.

I was wondering if you could supply step files for your models? I like your design but i would like to make some changes and modifying stl files is quite a pain.


I have no idea where the files might be, this was a long time ago. I am honestly not sure I have them I was at a different company then, I might have left them the files. If I find then I will upload them but don't get your hopes up. Sorry

That would be great if you could find them. Thx

does anyone know where the files for the gears are?

look up wades extruder. there are several different kinds.

So does that fit the jrx hot end that came with the hdx? I want to do the same but keep the hot end for now.

No The is for a JHead style extruder. Sorry

Any idea where I can find that for the jrx? I've seen the gregs wade extruder but I have no idea how to manipulate open scad files...

no idea the jrx didn't work well for me

Ok, the search goes on... lol thanks though.

Lol new hotend on the way! What to do with the old one...


This looks like what airwolf should have done from the beginning. I am so sick of mouse bites and clogged heads I am about ready to tear the whole thing apart and build a completely new printer.

Can you send me any additional info on the upgrade? I am really considering this mod.

This was done on a printer at my work. I only added a e3Dv6 and two long screws. it works so good for flexible materials, but having a hard time with PLA now. We just got a .6 nozzle and it seems to work better now but I think the whole issue has been with 3mm filament. If I was to do it again I would switch it to 1.75mm.

Oh I also turned down the drivers in the firmware they were way to high/hot.
