Bunch of my parts are arriving.  My Misumi black aluminum extrusions are already in.  I have an E3D and a Dragon hot end because I ordered one and then read about the other.  I have 2 different build plate kits on order.  They guys at DigMach took several days to reply and I had already ordered one from China.  But I kinda liked the looks of the DigMach set and it was higher wattage so I'll probably have an extra set if any AZ folks need one.

Iíve been building the Voron Afterburner hot end gantry. Itís cool to see it come together.



Hereís the extruder. Iím just waiting for the heat inserts to come in so I can finalize the assembly.

I noticed my circles were off a tad on my chiron.
which means i need to check the belts, bearings and for loose screws then recalibrate e-steps as last resort.

I still need two more parts before I can install the actual hot end, but this has been fun to print and assemble!



Heat inserts are awesome to work with!!

Cool yots...not sure when I'll get to assemble mine.  The fans from Digikey had a 4 month backorder.  So many parts arriving and I'll be held up from simple fans.

Well they told me the fans were back ordered until 6/20 but I double-checked status and now they've shipped them already.  Gotta watch some of these websites.  I thought I was paying about $168 but they shipped in 3 different deliveries and now my total they charged me is $209.  McMaster Carr does the same thing.  They shipped my entire order except for these tiny 1mm washers.  Those got shipped from somewhere else so an extra $9 shipping.  It was such a small envelope my wife said they ripped you off on shipping...lol.

Have you guys used heat inserts yet? Theyíve awesome!



So much nicer than just screwing directing into the plastic. You use a heated soldering iron to heat the insert, and then push it into the hole. They go in firmly and are snug.

Word of advice. Make sure you ordered the M3x4mmLx5mmOD ones. If you ordered the M3x5mmLx4mmOD ones, they arenít going to work. I speak from experience.

Well you had me thinking I ordered the wrong ones because I knew mine were 3x5x4 but the ones on AliExpress have the diameter as the middle number so I think I'm ok.
Product properties: M3 X D5.0 X L4.0

Yeah, Ali and Amazon both list them differently. So if you bought them from Ali, youíre Golden.

Theyíre fun to use. I picked up a special soldering tip to insert them, but you can use a regular clean soldering tip.
