Electroformed Hot End

Title Electroformed Hot End

"The purpose of this experimental design is to take a step toward a more "replicatable" hot end. The procedures outlined here could potentially be used to make a functional hot end using basic raw materials and simple processes, without the need for precision tools such as a metal lathe or drill bits and other cutting tools.

The main tube is electroformed copper. The insulating portion is cast plaster. The heater coil is made of enamel insulated copper wire. Temperature feedback is accomplished by measuring the resistance of the copper heater coil."
