Last leg of the old hot end

Last leg of the old hot end

One of the first things printed to an immediate end turned out to be a z axis mount for a prusa i1 – not that I meant to make one of them, but it seemed apparent at the time the quickest way to improve print quality could be the z axis, which was (and still is) cobbled together from an old printer and not designed for vertical motion. As the print progressed though it became apparent there were larger issues at stake – the hot end leaked, bridging was unreliable, and accuracy was questionable even considering the thick 0.8mm nozzle I used. This would be the last print in which I’d work with this hot end.
