Installing TH3D Tough Direct Drive Extruder with Heatsink and with V6 All-Metal Hotend

This upgrade helped a lot with the overall printing quality and with the printing of different brands and types of filaments.

List of parts used for this Printing Head Upgrade
1) TH3D Titan (Aero) Tough Direct Drive Extruder: https://www.th3dstudio.com/product/th3d ... d-package/
2) TH3D Titan (Aero) Tough Direct Heatsink
3) TH3D 1A Pancake Stepper Motor - NEMA 17 22.6mm
4) TH3D V6 All-Metal Hotend w/ Nozzle Kit
5) TH3D Titanium Heatbreak
6) Th3D Tough 50W Heater Cartridge – 12V
7) TH3D Glass Thermistor
8) Th3D 40mm Hotend FAN (12V)
9) TH3D 5015 High Speed Sealed Bearing FAN (12V)
10) TH3D Silicone Socks for V6 Hotend
11) Titan Aero Mount - You will want the mount to be printed with ABS filament
and you can ask TH3D to print it for you, TH3D cost was under $20.
The path to find where the proper STL files are, go to the TH3D firmware:
"TH3D_UFW_U1.R2.17" / "TH3DUF_R2 / EZABL STL Files" \ "EZABL Probe Mounts" / "Titan Aero Mount - V6 and Volcano".
Then find these two STL files: "AeroCarriageEZABL_EXTENDED" and "V6 5015 Fan Duct".
Note: This Titan Aero Mount is also made to be used the the TH3D EZABL.

12) I made a new Hotend Cable and purchased an Extension Cable Kit for CR10s.
