MK3S Mosquito integration
My mk3s arrives in few days, ive been reading a lot about the bondtech and mosquito combo, is the mosquito hotend that good as compared to e3d v6 (stock), or should i just upgrade the extruder?
The Mosquito is much better than the E3DV6 in my opinion. Much less fussy and one-hand nozzle changes. Do both - I did.
Has anyone ever try this clone?
I have not used both this hotend and the Mosquito. I do not see much of a difference. Has anyone else used it?
is bontech extruder and mossquito clone worth it for printing pla and PETG?
I can't comment about clones - I don't buy them. I have been very satisfied with the original Bondtech extruder and Mosquito hotend for printing PETG, PLA, PC and ASA.
did you mean stock extruder? What did it improve for you?
i am just trying to see what I would gain with $300 upgrade
Which clone you would suggest?
I'm still loving my Mosquito Magnum with the TC Nozzles (both 0.4 and 0.8). I went to upgrade my MK3s/MMU2 firmware but see that Bunny Science / Guy has not updated his firmware fork for a year. Any news?
Nope. I think he‘s still too busy working in healthcare and dealing with the covid situation.
I moved to klipper in the meantime for 0.9 support and never looked back - it‘s a drastically different experience!
Currently i am trying to get the MMU2 to work with klipper - not really a drawback because it never worked without issues on 3.8.1 either...
Fixed the bugged einsy bootloader in the process and now have rock solid 250000baud connection without dropouts even on days long prints.
My setup is MM3s/MMU2s + Mosquito Magnum + High Temp Thermister with stock steppers. Guy's Firmware had the ability to select all sorts of combination including my setup which was great including the correct distances for the MMU2s on the M0squito Magnum. Looks like I'll hold on for a while as I don't see another option at this time.
Nonissue with anything mentioned except the mmu2. I'm on 0.9 steppers, also Mosquito with slice thermistor and of course BNBSX.
One of Klippers benefits is that any changes are made in one configfile - a simple restart of klipper activates the changes like in RRF.
Dealing with firmware is a pain in marlin (change, compile, flash, reboot).
