UPDATE JUNE 15th 2020: ============ The Hero Me Generation Five has been released. For the latest information please visit here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4460970 ------------------
**All issues with previous Hero Me Gen4, Gen3, and Gen2 have been resolved in the latest generation.**
This project will no longer be updated.
Updated Mar 3rd 2019: Now version 6. Improved duct outlet to direct air flow to the tip of the nozzle. Increased space for wires. Improved mount points for OEM 4010 fan. Added air exhaust ports on each side to improve air flow across the heat sink.
This Hero Plus ver6 is compatible with both the OEM hot-end as well as the MicroSwiss hot-end. It has more clearance for the larger cooling fins.
There are 3 versions No ABL (manual leveling) Adjustable BLTouch EZABL from TH3DStudios.com
This Hero Plus version 6 is all one piece with a stronger mount block attachment.
Print the Hero Plus with the backside down on the build plate. Supports are required, but only from the build plate.
Setup requires complete disassembly of the hot-end from the X gantry, so as to pre-assemble it in the shroud and mount it all at once.
Trick to mounting it to the gantry is to leave the front fan off, then with the rest assembled screw the hot-end to the bracket through the fan duct.
Parts Cooling Duct Height Placement When the hot-end nozzle is touching the build plate, the bottom of the part cooling duct should be between 1mm and 2mm above the build plate (depending on your hot-end and nozzle shape/size). You want the ducts to be blowing air at the base of the nozzle. The lower the better, but not so low as to catch on the printed parts. I set mine to about 1.2mm - 1.4mm above the bed.
