Reply To: Volcano hot end

First tests with the volcano clone. Went straight for the 1.2mm nozzle.

First parts are fugly! Not just because of the fact I am printing at 0.8mm layer height, but also because it’s ooze city and I have some over extrusion, which at this height shows up really bad. Need to calibrate retraction and feed rate.

But..the parts are really strong, and the print speed is amazing. I’m doing a spool mount part at 1/3 of the speed from before with my 0.4mm nozzle at 0.26mm layer height. No apparent loss of dimensional accuracy.

Seems this might be the way to go for me printing MPCNC parts.
