CNC Water Cooled hot end for sale $25

Post by eric1565 » April 25th, 2018, 7:54 pm

I had been having problems with heat creep on my Anet, and my DIY Core XY. Both are in my garage and it gets up to 100F in here. I also put an enclosure over each printer to help maintain temps in colder months, and left them on during hotter months also. But I started to get heat creep issues and I could not solve it, so I decided to design water cooled end that used some off the shelf parts. A Turnigy water jacked for inrunner RC motors, they are cheap about 5 dollar from hobby king and a pump from amazon, about 10 dollars. So for less than 50 bucks you can have a water cooled 3D printer, and move your way up to enclosed prints with high chamber temps.

I have not had any heat creep issues since. No cooler has been needed so far. I bought some DI water from the store and am using that as my cooling fluid. I have the pump in a tupperware container sitting on the bench next to the printer. So far this thing has been bullet proof, and I am very happy with it. I made some small design improvements from my first design, mainly lead-in chamfers to help the o-rings get into place.

I have a short video on my anet on Youtube if you look up eric.ensley you will find it.
I am selling the CNC'd part for $25 plus shipping. If you are interested PM me.

Thank you

Looks nice! Have you measured how hot it gets within the enclosure? You may want to make sure your steppers don't overheat.
