RE: 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.

I have not used both this hotend and the Mosquito.  I do not see much of a difference.  Has anyone else used it?

RE: MK3S Mosquito integration

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.

RE: MK3S Mosquito integration

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?

Thanks

Nathan

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.

RE: MK3S Mosquito integration

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).

RE: MK3S Mosquito integration

I did the Mosquito integration the simple way.  Just the standard E3D / Prusa thermistor and at first a 50w Slice heater and when that eventually failed, a standard 40w E3D heater.  It works great with standard settings for everything. I'm sure that some settings could be improved but it works great as-is.

The primary reason I went to the (standard) Mosquito was for the one-handed rapid nozzle changes, hot or cold, which are awesome!   As I tend to switch back and forth between projects with different nozzle sizes I hope that Prusa adopts something similar for future models. 

I tried two different Mosquito-adapted extruders, the one suggested on Slice's website, which is very good, and one I found on Thingiverse which I like better, "Prusa MK3S+ Mosquito Hotend Extruder 6.1" by KONSUL.

RE:

I got the Mosquito in a combo including also a Bondtech LGX extruder and the printed parts + screws for mounting this setup together in a Prusa MK3S/+.

The only additional parts I needed to print were the modified X carriage front/back (you can download the STL files or purchase them already printed  ). 

So far I'm very satisfied with the performance and no heat creep or clogs anymore with PLA or flex. I haven't tried really soft filament though, only TPU-95A. Probably TPE-80A and softer  would be more troublesome.
