Re: MK3 has a new spool holder!

Is the hot end assembly all black now?

IMO I like the standard colour of the Noctua fans. I like that people are excited about the colours though. I will probably reprint my plastics to be either Glow in the dark or translucent and pop in some holes for LEDS and link them to the printer status

If the final extruder body is really black than it must be related to the optical filament sensor. Remember in maker faire NY in the sun they put aluminum tape around extruder top to block the light out.

Yes very nice! Will be so much better than old holder. YouTube will praise it higher than flexible bed😂

Cool. I missed the unboxing part of the vid so just saw the parts on the desk.

Re: MK3 has a new spool holder!

Re: MK3 has a new spool holder!

I assume the frame is unchanged from MK2/S, then you can use the model I made https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2640009 - This model can be printed without support.

Have a look at my models on Printables.com 😉
