E3D V6 threaded sink pitch

  • Does anyone know for certain the pitch on the E3D threaded V6 sink? I don't see it called out on the drawing. It was mentioned here that it "might" be 1.0mm, though that's finer than common for an M12 (at least per the references I have here in the Colonies).

    Mine is currently assembled on my Smart Effector, and I'm hoping to not have to take it apart for the measurement.

    AFAIR it's 1.25mm on the heatsinks that E3D made for us, however I think they changed to 1.75mm for the heatsinks they made later for general release.

  • Pretty sure it is a M12 fine 1.5mm pitch on the release ones the first betas were 1.75 pitch

  • Thanks, everyone. Sorry for the delay in replying - apparently I don't have my profile set to let me know when I've received a response to a posting.

    Thanks for the link, John, but that's my point - the pitch isn't stated on the drawing (unless I'm blind).

  • As far as I know it is M12x1.5.
    That is what I use in all my designs.

  • Thanks, Dougal1957 & Lykle. That's exactly what I just received from E3D themselves:

    "Our threaded heatsinks have a M12x1.5 thread. Duet initially ordered some M12x1 for their smart effector, but when they run out of this first batch they will then use our standard M12x1.5."

    Lykle - I like your SideWinder design. I have a foggy, long-term idea of vertically stacked printers (cartesian or coreXY), and the SideWinder would greatly reduce the otherwise wasted overhead clearance the filament would require.
