I own a battery-powered Bosch 7mm glue pen, and I was thinking to motorized it. Your great design gave me some ideas. Thanks!
But are you using a heater from a 7mm hotgun, which have a smaller nozzle?
As your are designing a 7mm version, could you have the body made from 2 parts, to be able to 3D-print the front part with a temperature proof filament, and the rear part with standard PLA?I ask this because we recently found a nice filament which can resist up to 110°C and can be extruded at 250°C:https://www.machines-3d.com/filament-nylon-fibres-...but it is quite expensive :o/
Great! What base are you using, for the nozzle?
