Slot Cooler 03 Slot Cooler 02 Slot Cooler 01

On the RepRap forum the question came up how the Merlinb hotend is cooled when printing Polycarbonate @ 260°C
The design i currently use is rather simple, it focuses on cooling the lower part of the PEEK and guides the airflow as far around to the backside of the hotend as possible. Ultimately i would like to be able to press all air through a small gap at the lower end of the PEEK, but that is a tight fit given that the heater block needs to be insulated.
