Afinia and UP 3D printers have a high filament melt point temperature on the extruder nozzle at approximately 260°C. Third-party filament generally has a lower melt point. This enhancement for the Afinia H479/H480 and the UP, UP Plus & Up Plus 2 3D Printers allows you to select from 8 possible preset temperature points ranging from 209-266°C. This temp switch also works with the UP Mini.
- Easily installs onto extruder cover.
- Non-invasive in-line connection.
- Installs in less than 2 minutes – snaps into extruder cover.
- Allows for easier raft removal.
This modification is neither approved nor disapproved by the Afinia and UP manufacturers. We need to advise customers that this may affect your warranty if the manufacturer receives a printer for repair with the modification installed or becomes aware that it is being used. However, the temperature switch can be removed in less than a minute.
NOTE! When the extruder nozzle reaches printing temperature with the Octave Extruder Nozzle 8 Setting Temperature Switch installed, the temperature indicated on screen by the printer software does not change to indicate the actual nozzle temperature as determined by the Temperature Switch settings, but will continue to show the printer's default printing temperature of 266°C.
The following table shows the temperatures achieved with the Octave Temperature Switch when the Afinia and UP 3D printer software is set to ABS or PLA mode and the respective switch position to ON.
