Toolchanger thermal restrictions
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

There are a couple concerns for the ambient temperatures we will be seeing and the ability of some of the E3D toolchanger components being able to handle them.

Motor - We are awaiting more information, but have been told they are only rated for up to 60C ambient and 80C internal. Our initial testing showed 60C ambient from just the toolheads and bed, so we will want something higher rated.

Bearings - We are awaiting information.

Limit switch limit is 85C, which should be fine

Bearings are not rated high enough, but E3D will be looking into higher rated ones

I need to clarify if higher rated motors are also being looked into on their end or not

E3D is working with their supplier to get higher temperature motors
