My 2012 Solidoodle 2 Pro 3D printer’s original extruder got irreparably clogged, so I needed to replace the hotend. I decided to go with an E3D v6 1.75mm hotend (USA). It comes in parts, not assembled, so I had to put it together.
There is some excellent information out there already about how to do this. Follow their instructions.
