EPCOS B57560G104F Datasheet states this thermistor's maximum working temperature is 200c. In the description here you can clearly see that the stated working temperature is 300c. Clearly this is false advertising as defined by law.
I'll be requesting a refund, or back charging. Whichever is more effective.
Don't lie about your products. Know what you're selling if this is an honest mistake, but I don't think it is.
20 minutes to install and no problems with bed leveling since, in fact today is my 8th day of almost continuous printing without spending any time leveling the bed. Before installing this plate I was spending 1 to 2 hours trying to level the bed with sporadic success. I now love my Ender 3 but, unfortunately I'm now bald. (just kidding) If your on thence about buying this just do it you won't be sorry.
Bought this to replace the glass bead thermistor, for the bead resistors kept breaking. Put this in, did a PID tune, and the heat curve was much smoother than any other glass bead thermistor. I highly recommend this as an upgrade.
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.
The light was pretty good before, but the recent design changes really make this an amazing product. Debating whether or not to replace the other one I have with a newer one.
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.
This upgrade is a must. There are many light fittings out there but this is by far the best. The build quality is top notch and the dimmer is a nice touch. Best of all though is the light diffuser. Giving an even spread of light over the area without bright/dark spots. A must if you plan to record print time-lapse videos. Thank you GCR!
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?
Definately not see-through, but it's still a decent PTFE tube none-the-less. Good price, too.
The threads are a smaller diameter than what is standard, so be ready to make some modifications. Other than that, great quality piece.
The piece itself is really high quality and the push button works great, but do note that you cannot push the PTFE tube all the way though. I have a Longer LK4 3D Printer (a.k.a Alfawise U30) which required that the PTFE tube go into the extruder assembly about an inch or so past this fitting at the top of the heatsink. I had to use a 3/16 drill bit and drill through it in order to allow the tube to go through, so be warned that you will have to do this if you are in a similar situation.
This 3 point leveling is great. Easy to install, and quick leveling when needed, even on the fly. Only have had a few days now, and haven't had any issues at all with leveling.
I have had this for a few days now, and no problems at all. No warping, heats up to temp faster, and retains the heat better than stock. I mated this with their 3 point leveling system for faster leveling when needed, and I am very pleased.
When I first ordered this hotend it was by mistake. I searched "microswiss hot end" and this popped up in the shopping section of Google. I was super sad when I realized I had ordered the wrong item. I expressed my concern to a Facebook group I am part of and many said they had ordered this piece and had good luck.
Boy were they right! I had such a fantastic experience with my new hot end I purchased a second and am taking delivery today!
I outfitted my hotend with a plated tool steel nozzle. I have printed PLA, ABS, carbon reinforced PLA and nylon. The hot end works great and prevents oozing and clogging issues. It stays super cool, bolts on easy.. everything I could have hoped for.
Let's call this experience a happy accident.
Thanks Gulfcoast Robotics for a great deal on an excellent product!
