Why Was The Bondtech Hotend Fix for Raise3D Pro2 Created

Many users contact us to buy extruder upgrades for the Raise3D Pro2.
These frequently repeated reports were evaluated by our Engineering team.
We found out most issues reported come from the hotend, not from the extruder.

The Raise3D Pro2 has a serious heat creep problem.

Print jobs using low Glass Transition Temperature materials are the most affected.
The longer PLA or TPU prints go over 2 hours, the higher the probability of failing due to under-extrusion or even clogging. Prints fail, or the parts made are very fragile.

For this serious problem we designed a simple and effective solution.

  • The solution's core is the Copperhead Heat Break, that enhances heat dissipation and separates hot and cold side of the heat break more effectively;
  • A new heat block was designed and machined by Bondtech to provide compatibility with the stock heaters, thermistors and silicone socks while enabling the Copperhead heat breaks and wide standard RepRap nozzles;
  • To wrap it up, a pair of Bondtech CHT nozzles increase the flow capacity and improve layer adhesion, or enable the possibility of running the nozzles at lower temperatures.

Before And After Installing The Bondtech Hotend Fix

SETUP GUIDE

Setting Up the Bondtech Hotend Fix for Raise3D Pro2

The guide below shows how to install the Bondtech Hotend Fix For Raise3D Pro2.

The whole process is divided into 3 stages. Click each tab below to reveal the steps on each stage. This guide assumes you know how to operate the Pro2. If you don't, please refer to Raise3D Pro2's Documentation.

When we illustrate how to execute a step on extruder 1, the same procedure needs to be mirrored on extruder 2.

Step 1. Unload Filament

Step 5. Install The Hotend Onto The Extruder

Insert the hotend back in place all the way up.

Insert the hotend back in place

Tighten the 2 set crews, one on each hotend.

Tighten the set crew.

Verify the alignment

Using Silicone Socks

Using the Hotend Fix with a silicone sock is more stable and leads to better performance. Still, you have the choice not to use them.

Case you do or you don't, perform a new PID tunning to improve the thermal reaction of the heaters and thermistors.

Case you want to use them, after inserting the first hotend is the time to apply the silicone sock to extruder 1. After placing extruder 2, it gets too tight to add the silicone socks later.

This guide will continue without the silicone socks on. The procedures are exactly the same with or without, but without's easier to show.

Step 1. Hot Tighten The Nozzles

Heat up each nozzle up to 250C.

Heat up the nozzle up to 250C

Use a wrench to hold the heatblock.

Tighten the nozzle with a torque wrench

Step 2. Z-offset Re-adjustment

Check Raise3D Pro2's Documentation for more detailed information on how to re-adjust the Z-offsets.

Raise the end-switch screw all the way up.

Lower Extruder 2 to set its Z-offset.

Lower Extruder 2 to set its Z-offset

Drop hotend 2 on the feeler gauge

Step 3. PID Tunning

Either you will use the Silicone socks or not, before starting using the Pro2, perform a PID tunning on both hotends.

Check Raise3D Pro2's Documentation for more detailed information on how to perform, a PID tunning.
