This replacement Hot End Cartridge allows you to use the highly-rated E3D hot end in your da Vinci 1.0 Pro (or Pro 3-in-1) printer without having to modify your printer's hardware.
I originally designed this cartridge when my original stock nozzle cartridge got a nasty clog. At the time, there were no replacement cartridges available from the manufacturer, but I saw that other owners of this printer had been modifying their printers to use the E3D V6 hot end. I also modified my printer to use an E3D V6 style hot end, and I really liked the ease of use of the E3D V6 hot end with its modular design and replaceable/upgradeable nozzles. However, I missed the ease of removal/insertion of the stock hot end, and I also wanted the potential ability to buy/use the da Vinci Pro's laser engraver upgrade.
After using this design for some time, I decided to also try it with E3D's Lite6 hot end. The Lite6 hot end also functions very well in the da Vinci 1.0 Pro printer. For a comparison of the E3D V6 versus E3D Lite6 hot ends see this link.
If you primarily print PLA or PLA based filaments I recommend choosing the E3D Lite6 hot end. This will give you more control over retraction settings for a better print. With the E3D V6 hot end I find I need to keep retractions low (under 3mm) to prevent clogging -- this can lead to a fair amount of post-print clean-up.
Though I have made the design for the printed parts of this product available on Thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1328848), I sell these cartridges completely assembled and tested so you can simply swap your stock nozzle cartridge for one of these, adjust the printer's z-offset as per my included instruction sheet and get back to printing very quickly.
I hand assemble these cartridges and run test prints in my own printer before shipping to ensure they are working properly.
