[title] Extruder Assembly Tips
[* icon_note] This step supplements the video with some helpful tips and closeup photos.
[* red] The E3D V6 hot end fan and shroud should be assembled as shown in the first photo.
[* red] The completed parts cooling fan assembly is shown in the second photo. It shows the correct orientation for each fan.
[* red] The third photo shows the finished extruder and hot end assembly. Note the wires tied with two zip ties to the wiring post.
[* icon_note] Note the orientation of the red heat exchanger. In this position, air from the hot end cooling fan flows across its vanes for more effective cooling.
[* icon_note] A piece of special thermally conducting tape called ''Akaska Heat Tape'' found in the ''Micro Extruder Motor'' bag is used to attach the heat sink to the motor.
[* red] Remove the pink protective film from the ''Akaska Heat Tape'' and apply the tape to the inside of the heat sink. Then trim the excess tape off with an X-acto knife. Finally, remove the yellow paper film and snap the heat sink around the extruder motor.
