Questions about my new Direct Drive
I just received my new direct drive and have a few comments and questions. First, just an FYI, the new CR-10S comes with a different end cap that is incompatible with the filament holder that ships with the direct drive, there is no way to clamp it on. This is just a minor inconvenience for me, as I will be designing and printing out a top mount spool holder and will relocate my filament sensor there anyway. Next, the embedded brass threaded piece, that the tensioner screw screws into, pulled out of the body. I mixed up some JB weld and pushed it back in the housing. Hopefully that will hold it. Now onto my questions:
1) What nozzle size ships with the direct drive?
2) I know this next question is hard to answer without specifics, but just in general, what heat, speed, line width, layer height, and such do you recommend for PLAs (just for a guideline for me to start testing). Right now, I can only generate a decent print using 220C, 60 mm/m for walls, with a layer height of 0.4 mm and a line width of 0.4 mm. These settings actually cause my prints to take a little longer than my stock setup.
3) Can I use my volcano E3D V6 hotend, do you guys make a case for the direct drive components that can house the longer volcano hotend?
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
