I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is replacing the hot end on a Da Vinci 1.0 Pro. I printed the shell that was recommended (very good job designing shell). Make sure you use 12v heater, I accidentally bought 24v heater and found out the hard way. Good price, quality and craftmanship.
I started having issues with my davinci pcb. I placed the order on a Saturday and he had it ready to ship on the first available day to ship and arrived quick. When I had questions he contacted me super fast to verify everything was fine.
Josh, I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on your PCB purchase. I am very pleased to hear you are satisfied. Please feel free to contact me should you have any issues or questions about the PCB. Happy Printing! -Bruce
I am new to 3D printing and purchased the Da Vinci Pro because I wanted an enclosed unit so I could work with different plastic. What I didn't realize was the shortcomings of the Di Vinci Pro hot end to do abrasives without damaging the tip and the lack of a hardened tip from the vendor. After a tone of YouTube videos I came across one on the plans Bruce put out to make a hot end with the E3D V6. I decided I didn't know enough just yet to build the hot end myself so I just purchased one from Bruce a week ago. I have been extremely pleased with my entire purchasing experience of this product. I received it within a few date of my purchase. The documentation inside the box was fantastic and I was able to get the new hot end installed in a matter of minutes. The build quality is great and it fits in the holder like a glove. After to required adjustments, my first couple of prints look fantastic. Great job Bruce!
Stephen, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It will help anyone else who may be looking for an alternative hot end for their da Vinci 1.0 Pro model printer. I am glad to hear you had no issues getting the new hot end installed and adjustments made to get printing quickly -- that is exactly the experience I hope for each of my customers. -Bruce
Hi Jae, It is great to hear about your success using the new hot end module. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with everyone. I am glad your prints are coming out so well. Happy Printing! -Bruce
I bought this pcb so that I could keep the original, just in case, when I switched in the E3D V6 hot end. The parcel arrived damaged and had a note from the courier that they were sorry about that, but the product packaging inside was good enough that the contents were unharmed :) Documentation in product description as well as on youtube made for a very simple install. I am very happy with the product. Thank you Bruce.
Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to share your impression of my PCB. I am glad to hear that despite the package suffering some damage in transit that the PCB was unharmed. As you alluded to, I do not send any documentation with the PCB because the PCB is meant for those people building their own cartridge based on the 3DPrintCreator YouTube video or the information on the Thingiverse page for my design. I am glad you are happy with your upgrade, and I hope you get lots of use out of it and your daVinci Pro 3D printer. Regards, Bruce
This mod is fantastic! You can really appreciate and tell someone is 110% behind their product from they kind of documentation they send along with it. The documentation sent is a very professional, well formatted and a detailed little pamphlet. Communication after sale, is priceless, and he helped me avoid a possibly unnecessary expense as I was interested in further optimizing my printer, by quickly responding to an issue unrelated to his modification. The printed part, with the E3Dv6 Lite in it, is tight, well made, and slots into the carriage holder that XYZ uses perfectly, absolutely zero issues. Thanks for an excellent product and first time Tindie purchase for me!
Thank you for your feedback, Bobby. I am glad you found the documentation helpful; I tried to provide enough information to get customers up and running -- and hopefully avoid some of the pitfalls I ran into when first using the E3D V6 hot end.
The drop in cartridge is truly that.my print quality has improved and i can now print with abrasive materials that i could not before. The shipping was super fast and Bruce was super quick to get back to me with answers to any questions i had.
I have had this product for about a year now and I has been working like a charm. The packaging was nice and came with clear instructions. I've mainly been using it for all of my exotic filaments and it's done great. Great product.
