Default Dual Hypercube Evolution Build

So James (Joco) and I are embarking on a new project

The building of a Hypercube Evolution coreXY 3D printer each


Because we have engineering machines already we have decided to build some parts rather than buy them in from overseas.

The last two nights for me have been spent make the Hotends based on the E3D hotend design E3D online



These things are quite small (16mm x 23mm x 11.5mm)

Hopefully this might be of interest to others on this site.

Cheers

Bruce

Hi Manfred

Did you take that photo (that isn't appearing) on your phone? There is some phaffing about you have to do to get it to show from Google Photos (can't remember what that phaffing is at the mo)

Something screwed up. Will look at it again when get home and edit things. Still coming to grips with this google photos/drive thing for sharing images on sites.

edit: Fixed .... I hope.

Bruce,
I looked at making a few of these but when I found them on the shelf in the UK for 2 each I bought them in, I'm making my own stainless throats though as M6 threaded rod is well priced at the local Screwfix ;-)
