    A friend with a farm of a few mk2ís got an mk3 same time I did and reckons he canít get quite the same quality from the mk3 yet. He prints a few thousand things a month so Iím inclined to believe him. Reckons the mk3 will take some time to get tweaked to be as good and the smarts are better of course too.

    Agreed, It will take a little while for the MK3 to catch up, but the other features like the build plate make it so much nicer to deal with.

    Having said that it still prints beautifully

    Ok looking at getting my printer working again after its been offline for about 18 months due to repeated nozzle clogs and me getting the shits.

    Im considering getting a new extruder head for it as the cheapo MK8 one I have doesnt strike me as being particularly high quality. Anyone got experience with this sort of thing and able to tell me if it'd be an easy swap on the control side of things? I dont want to have to frig about with the control boards/drivers/etc, I just wanna undo old and fix in the new.

    Is an upgrade worth the hassle? My print quality has been fine with the MK8, more after reliability than a print quality upgrade (although it wouldnt hurt).

    Or should I just get a new $1 nozzle and move on?

    I swapped my extruder recently for a Titan, but i do run a bowen setup with a Chimera head.

    Works well.

    Thats for dual extruders with the stepper motor being fixed to the frame yeah? A bit more complexity than Im looking for at the moment

    Or even for single extruders, you can make it work either way. My Prusa clone had an external MK8 extruder with a Bowden line to a v6 head.

    Anyone using a Malyan M200/Monoprice Select Mini?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Hmm ok these V6 seem bloody cheap. Might just do that, cheer Tak

    Does dual extruders mean bigger power supplies/SSRs/etc? Im currently running one of these: http://www.geeetech.com/geeetech-alu...kit-p-944.html

    Anyone use inductive proximity sensors? Aliexpress has a bit of a sale on so Im looking at grabbing a few things.

    Looking at getting this V6 hotend & inductive sensor with new i3 carriage (Not sure I need the new carriage, but id need some sort of bracket to hold the V6 hotend and that carriage looks like a much better solution than some of the shitty brackets Ive found)

    Then a full titan extruder kit, which comes with a spare hot end but ill get the cooling fan & bracket, & all the tubes/etc to setup a bowden feed

    The quantity of stuff on aliexpress is a little overwhelming so Id greatly appreciate another pair of eyes on my order :/
