So I ran a print last night and when I woke up this morning it went awry. The insulating sleeve literally popped out and is full with plastic, and the hot and itself is covered in plastic. Check out the attached photos
I'm kind of surprised because I use a heated bed with kapton squares at 65 degrees Celsius.
I'm at work all day so I have time to think about whether or not it makes sense to try to save this thing, I'm thinking if I heat the hot end To 170C or so I should be able to peel away most of the plastic, but I definitely need to replace the sleeve.
That said, does it make sense to upgrade to the more advanced hot end that they offer? I read the description on the website and it talks about a more efficient and summer design but does that translate into more reliable or functional? That would be my primary focus, reliability and functionality....
A y advice much appreciated...thanks!!!!
