how to increase the max hot end temp

Post by mrbdrm » Tue May 13, 2014 1:05 pm

Hi
i have installed E3D and i don't know where to start to increase the temp limit on the hot end. searched for a guide with no luck.
can i change it from EEPROM configuration in repetier host?

There is a max temp setting in the configuration.h of your firmware which you would need to increase then upload the firmware to the
Rambo board using Arduino.

ok
is there something i need to do before that? backup? or simply modify the maxtemp value then upload?

You should just modify the setting in configuration.h then upload. Make sure that the maxtemp value you are changing
is for the extruder.

thank you
i have done it and everything is good
what layer fan mount you guys recommend with this mount http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:137140 from 626Pilot
the stock one is lower than the nozzle now.

That is one of the problems with going to the E3D and I don't know if anyone ever created a layer fan that works without
sticking out so far it could risk banging on the uprights. If anyone knows what works best as a layer fan after installing
an E3D please step in and let us know.

That one looks great! I don't know how I missed that one but I'm glad you did not.
Thanks for finding it and sharing with us! I am printing one out as soon as I can.
GREAT FIND!
