Anet A8 Door Hinge Upgrade
« on: May 25, 2021, 01:46:34 am »
Has anyone done this upgrade?

It looks quite useful, however, I question the heatsink not being completely mounted to the extruder.

I'm guessing the heatsink doesn't do much since it's not mounted tightly. My guess: it's used to prevent the air from blowing directly into the extruder and not necessarily for cooling.

The door hinge upgrade looks useful, but, as I stated, the heatsink basically rests against the extruder. If it's meant to draw heat away from the extruder, it seems this will cause less thermal conduction.

I did a similar thing with my old Anet A6. The good old MK8 did not feel at all that his heatsink was removed and worked safely  for more than a year, having survived, in the process, the conversion of Anet into a Hypercube.
