UPDATED Design Rev 1.1, Mach 30, 2013. Changes:
Heater Cartridge, as a heating element of hot end, became affordable alternative to power resistor.
This design solves the problem of mounting heater cartridge on M6 threaded barrels,
works flawlessly with Makergear hot end, can replace Makerbot stepstruder Mk7 heater block and should work with other M6 threaded barrels/hot ends.
DIY kit - block + cartridge + thermistor + PTFE sleeves + conn
Consult with supplied PDF drawing for details.
I.) For CNC machining: This thing to be machined from 3/8" x 3/4" 6061-T6 extruded bar, then tapped M3 & M6 according to drawing. Machining strategy is up to you. Use STL file and drawing to create G-code.
II.) You can make it manually from 3/8" x 3/4" 6061-T6 extruded bar stock:
Use kapton tape or, better, steel epoxy, to mount thermistor in 2.5mm diam. hole.
