This kit is for upgrading your JumpStart printer with an E3D hot end and extruder. We recommend the E3D Lite6 hot end and Titan extruder. You could also use a v6 hot end, but it's high temperature capabilities would go to waste since the JumpStart does not have a heated bed. You could also use any other extruder that mounts to a NEMA 17 motor.
This upgrade also converts the printer to a bowden setup. The extruder is removed from the X carriage and gets bolted to the back of the printer. This reduces the weight on the carriage and makes the whole printer faster and more sturdy.
The layer cooling fan also gets eliminated. This fan didn't do much anyways. We recommend using a small desk fan and pointing it at the printer.
The M3 inserts, installed.
Insert the groove of the hot end into the slot on the printed part.
Install the other printed part with two M3 x 16 screws.
Attach the mount to the carriage: M3 x 18 screw for the horizontal hole; M3 x 6 for the vertical (installed from the top pointing down).

Titan extruder, installed.
