[T] SecSavr Slight Heatsink

A project log for SecSavr Sublime [gd0036]

A 3D printer that I describe as "The FULL Coverage, Extended X, Pro Max, Ultramatrix Solution".

It's going to be another one of those "I don't really have much to say but I should probably write a log about it. Oh wait, there actually is a lot to say." logs. I've been thinking over the past 2 days and somewhat worried about this configuration. The delicate nature of this MQ Mozzle throat means that shaving 1mm from its base would probably be difficult. I also still somewhat doubt this tiny heatsink's cooling ability and would like to test this soon.

After some AliExpress searching, I'm thinking that an alternative could be a CR10 heatsink cut so that it's 15mm in height along with a bimetal heatbreak.

This combination would be a comparable to the price of a single MQ Mozzle heatbreak.



Other considerations

Oh sweet, a cheaper version

I just found this as I was writing this log. It's even got a flat section for better contact with the grub screw. Copper should be easy to cut like aluminium, right? Perhaps an idea is to cut the throat while inside the heatsink to get rid of that 4mm hole at the top.
Wait a second. This heatsink is drastically cheaper from this seller and a bunch of others on AliExpress. Nice to know.
