I have E3D Volcano and want to upgrade my CR-10 mini.

Found instructions how to change E3D Hotend for CR-10, but can't find any with CR-10 mini. Could I use same instruction that was made for CR-10?

Or better upgrade my Ender V2 with that E3D Volcano Hotend?

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe someone will answer that can use CR-10 instruction for CR-10 mini or someone will say that better is to upgrade Ender V2 if this option is available for me. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The word "better" is just very subjective. If you ask if it would be more straightforward (easier, simpler) it will be less about opinions. And still this is separate question :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Also, the volcano is an all-metal hotend. That is not always an "upgrade" for all machines, it is a different tradeoff: lined hotends are easier to use for lower temperatures, all-metal hotends reach higher temperatures at the cost of ease of use. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Bought E3D Volcano, so I can use it for Nylon Carbon printing. OEM hotend doesn’t allow that high temperature which is needed to melt Nylon Carbon $\endgroup$
