I have an earlier version of the E3D that I mean to try one of these days. I need to reprint a cold end first, because I managed to delaminate the body of my Greg's Wade Reloaded (not printed by me, I hasten to add), and I don't want to risk taking the J-Head off it before I print a replacement.

I bought one of the E3D-V6 from Filastruder. Very smooth purchase. I got the 24V heater to mate with a 24V heated bed.

Welp, my Pico Hot End arrived yesterday, waiting in the mail box when I got home. Very nice packaging, great hardware, lousy (for me) documentation. I couldn't puzzle out what ``Marlin Table No. 1'' meant in terms of thermistor, so had to ask around until I was clued in that it was EPCO100K and that I'd've learned that for myself if I'd looked in Configuration.h

So, it's installed (though I may tweak that installation --- not wild about the cable routing) but needs to be calibrated properly (learned that hot end PID autotune must be done from a cold start and added that to the wiki).

Did get the beginnings of a test print, and had the self-control to stop the job when it started rubbing the hot end tip over the over-extruded ridges.

Such is the way of things.

I heard there's a SO4 being announced next month...

Well, at least the new Pico Hot End is nicely (I think) installed (though I’m still debating re-running the cables), and more importantly, printing very nicely --- even nicer than the J-head and Makergear hot ends did.

It’s a bit of a nuisance unloading filament before shutting the thing down, but at least that makes colour changes easier.
