Hi all, I am wanting to upgrade the stock hotend on my Anycubic Mega X to an all metal hotend.
From what ive found online the E3D V6 is what I need (or if someone has another recommendation), there is a 24v and a 12v model, which led me down a rabbit hole and I have some questions before spending $100+ on the wrong part.
The current power supply on Mega X is 12v.
Is it worth upgrading the PSU to 24v? any benefits/downsides? What would need to be replaced if upgrading to 24v?
-currently have three 12v Noctua fans installed on the PSU, Motherboard & hotend, the part cooling fan is still stock).
-Also installed five TMC2209 drivers on the mainboard
Whilst im making modifications I was wondering if it would be worth it to convert to a direct drive system ,the extra weight of direct drive shouldnt really have a negative effect on print speed since the moving bed Y-axis would be a bottleneck to speed before the X-axis.
Are there any downsides to a direct drive system on this printer?
Appreciate any advice!
