Dual Hexagon Setup

Post by losiledlighting » Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:44 am

I'm putting together a Dual Hexagon hotend. For a single, I know the hotend assembly is different to accommodate the shorter hotend. Will the current Dual Hotend assembly work with Hexagons? Are there already a Dual Hexagon files available?

The Dual V3 has a single heat sink that the heater blocks attach. The Hexagon hotends have individual heat sinks.

I haven't checked, but the heat breaks may be different. The Hexagon had threaded heat breaks, the Dual V3 heat break slide in and held in place with a grub screw.

For some reason, I thought RepRapDiscount stopped making the Hexagon. But doing a quick search, you can still purchase the Hexagon AO (shorter heat block). I'd use the Titan or E3D V6 hotends for a new design.
