Where do I find a Mini heater block replacement?
First of all, I'm aware that I can get it on Prusa's website and I wouldn't mind if it weren't for the fact that the lead times are too high and I can't afford to wait that long in my current situation. Is there a decent alternative out there I can use, like Slice Engineering's heater block? Prusa says the mini uses a special block, but I can't find it anywhere on e3d's website or places like matterhackers.
I've seen some knockoff clones on Amazon, but is that even a good idea?
not sure the lead time is better neither if the quality is the same.
Oof wouldn't get to me until March, but I appreciate it nonetheless. Maybe these will come in handy if I ever do some mods or something.
Alternatively you can source v6 block (those are easier to find as v6 is very common hotend) and print different X carriage, for example this one. It needs to have hole for print fan a bit lower, since v6 block does not have beveled edge and will obstruct airflow with standard MINI carriage.
