[title] Assemble the UltiBots Micro Extruder and E3D V6 hot end
[* icon_note] Assembly of the Micro Extruder and E3D V6 hot end is described in an 8 minute long YouTube video. Additional tips are described in this step and ''Step 63'' - ++be sure to review them before you begin++.
[* red] Watch the video here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDQkNDaeZZQ|UltiBots Mico Extruder|new_window=true]
[* icon_note] Refer toicon_caution] Please read the [https://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/E3D-v6_Assembly|E3D V6 Assembly Guide|new_window=true] for additional informationbefore starting assemble of the hot end. Note that we do put the fan on opposite of how E3D installs. That's so the fan blows irair flow is more effectively overcooling the ''Micro Extruder'' ''stepper motor''.

[* red] The second photo shows the parts required. Note the'' red aluminum heat sink'' is not shown in the video. It replaces the motor cooling fan and shroud.
[* red] The third photo shows the extruder body "as printed". You must clean out the rectangular openings and other support as described in the video.
[* icon_caution] Be very careful not to tighten the set (grub) screw that holds the thermistor in place. The thermistor can be crushed. E3D's instructions cover this in detail: [https://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/E3D-v6_Assembly#Thermistor|Thermistor|new_window=true] ++You only need to do one half turn of the set screw to hold the cartridge in place.++
[* icon_note] Save the remainder of the ''heat sink compound'', it will be used in ''Step 78''.
