An alternative to Groovemount
There are a couple of major flaws with groovemounting (or previous standard HotEnd mounting style):
Fit is highly dependent on quality of part machining
Fit can become loose from repeated removal and refitting
To fight these problems, we're beta-releasing a new, blue, screw-threaded heat sink. Threading also brings some benefits of its own:
It's reliable and repeatable to machine
Wear due to repeated removal and refitting is not an issue
It offers more versatile mounting options, e.g. through a threaded plate
