OK, I am going to do this and already ordered the E3D-v6 hotend (Genuine not a copy) and an aluminum mounting plate for the E3d (didn’t want to go to a printed one, it just feels like metal is needed here).
I know I need a new print cooling fan shroud and found this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:819103
I know I need to auto tune PID…
I can wire it in (already have extra plugs/pins).
So am I missing anything? it seems pretty straight forward, is the included 100K Semitec NTC thermistor plug & play or do I need to change something in the firmware? I am a hardware and electronics guy and I can barely do software if I have step by step instructions.
Is there a better fan shroud than the one I linked to?
Thanks for any input.
