I'm on my third hotend in a year and a half of 3d printing. They apparently last me about 6 months.
In theory, they should have some repairable parts. I've already cannibalized the first one into the second, and finally gave up and replaced the second yesterday.
It's nice to hear the robot working again. I printed a spirograph!
There are so many little pieces of plastic in my life that have nostalgia or usefulness. It's cool to make my own.
