This hotend has been performing amazingly well for me over the last month and a half or so. I'm printing at 285 consistently, and with the upgraded thermistor, it stays well within my print range without issue. I can print ASA and Polycarbonate now! Yay!
Gulfcoast support has been amazing as well. I had an issue early on with my hotend oozing into the space where the heat break is. This was due to me not following directions and tightening down the nozzle after heating. TIGHTEN IT DOWN HOT!! I can't stress this enough. Once I got this issue sorted, it has been rock solid.
If you want to print more than PLA/PETG, this thing is a must.
I'm relatively new to the whole 3D printing community, but I have done a lot of research. Stumbled across Gulfcoasts page, and I haven't looked back!
This PEI plate practically sucks the filament out of the nozzle! I am able to print PLA, PETG, Nylon (blend), and ASA without any adhesives (glue, hairspray, etc) and often without any adhesion type (skirt/brim). And, the flex plate means I get to keep my magnetic bed from my Ender 3 Pro and use this right out of the box.
Great product! Highly recommend this for all of your printing needs!
My stock thermistor was not reading right on my Ender 3, so I thought I would upgrade since I was replacing it. This is a well made part, and I feel much better about this than the way the stock version is held. I will say it took a little persuading to get the fan shroud back on the extruder, but it all worked out just fine.
Bought to replace the hotend on my Ender 3. Install was straightforward and it has been working great!
The support for this product has been fantastic! I bought this because I had been having some flow issues, and this helped, but didn't solve it all the way. The support team helped diagnose, and we realized it has nothing to do with the hotend (needed to replace the terrible plastic extruder, it had cracked). Even though that has nothing to do with what I bought, they made sure to help me get everything set up, and now all is running perfectly!
I was having a lot of leveling issues with my original Ender 3 Pro bed. I ran Bed Level Visualizer, on my original bed with a BLTouch and found that the bed was severely dipped in the middle and just plain horrible. So I bit the bullet and decided to upgrade my bed with this kit along with the silicone heating element. What a night and day difference! I added a Wham Bam Flex kit as well, once I performed the Bed Level Visualizer in Octoprint using an BLTouch, this was a huge improvement! Bed was flatter and hardly any dips and just had to use a small tiny strip of a sticky note to get the whole bed within the same range, that's it. I used stiff bed mounts, so this helped as well to get things stored and keep the same mesh for every print. I also paired this with the three point leveling carriage but didn't use the three points, instead I'm using 4 points. Only reason why I used the Gulf coast carriage is due to being lighter than the stock carriage.
Now all my prints stick and no more leveling issues! My temps are much more consistent using PID auto-tune. Just make sure to change your Marline code to use the correct thermal device!
Thanks for saving my printer! Very pleased!
Needed to replace the PFTE lined stock hotends for my ender 3 pros, so I decided to give these a shot based off how pleased I was with the LED kits. I didn't quite know what to expect, but once I got these dialed in, it was smooth sailing. Glad I made this purchase!
I've had my Ender 3 for about 3 years and this is by far the best upgrade I've done because it finally allows me to move beyond PLA.
I happened to find this product while searching for something else for my printer and I bought it on impulse along with a roll of PETG.
I should have done this years ago! It's opened up a whole new world.
This is a good, cheap, and easy upgrade and I recommend it highly for anyone owning an Ender 3.
Easy drop in replacement for my Ender 3 pro. Takes a little effort to switch the wires since the manufacturer used hot glue on the connections, but worked straight out of the box.
They are not kidding about the stepper motors being "silent". Night and day difference in the amount of sound.
Looking forward to taking advantage of the features of this board.
Excellent Upgrade! Love the adhesion and the ability to see what is being printed even the white filament. I upgraded from my magnetic build plate which I could never get 100% clean and it was hard to see what was being printed because of all of the leftover glue. I am pleased with the ease of installation and the small clips that hold the glass bed to the moving platform. Get yourself one!
This was a great and cost effective upgrade over the stock hot end. Easy to install, if you know what you are doing and watch a couple videos.
My only complaint is that the little wrench that came with it doesn't fit anything on the part. What is the purpose of this wrench?
