    okay - lowering the temperature will generally INCREASE stringing. As the colder foilament is more inclined to stretch.

    check the 'z axis offset' in cura.

    It's an adjustable option, so maybe has been set really high.

    should be absolutely fine.

    polyurethane is uv and chemical resistant to a pretty impressive degree.
    As long as oyu print the gaskets solid, should be ideal :-)

    bear in mind the 300% is assuming you are using 0.1mm layer height.
    If you make the layer taller, remember to adjust the initial layer height accordingly.

    You never want to go over 0.4mm.

    I mean, there are only two things that can go wrong with the hotend, and you've changed one already :-)

    where's the update ?

    To be honest, I rarely use the actual program now as the thumnails work for most of what I need :-)

    But definitely interested to see what you come up with next !

    Hmm, well if you grip the heatblock at the wrong place when changing the nozzle, you can damage the wires for the heater cartridge and the thermistor.

    So change the heater cartridge as well.

    hmm, have you checked the design file ?

    It genuinely looks like two faces, an outline and a cutout.

    Particularly seeing how offset it is from the cutout and how universal.
