Answer to "extruder steps per mm"yeah cold extrude through a nozzle doesn’t work very well. :-) if you want to calibrate steps/mm with the nozzle in place. get the nozzle up to temp for the material load filament into the hotend mark 100mm up the filament from a fixed point on top of the hot end, use a marker or score the filament. extrude 100mm of filament nice and slow. measure from the fixed point to the mark previously made on the filament adjust steps as needed
Answer to "How well will the tapped threads hold up?"Pre-drilling the holes to recommended size for the tap and using taps with chip clearing design give me great results in ABS, PLA, and Nylon.
Answer to "Help with e3d v6 pre-assembled hotend"You will need a 3mm heat break and 3mm heatsink the rest of the parts are interchangeable.
