    Bad Connector Design / Choice

    Below, is a connector as provided on a 3D printer tool head (Hot End). This is a standard design used on all of this organizations tool heads.

    As you have probably already guessed, I have damaged one of my connectors removing the connector.

    Design 101 - don't ever do this in a field service-able connector ever folks.

    Looks like a garage hobbyist cheap solution for a connector. Cheap printer?

    The extension on those connector pins is ridiculous! They must burn through tons of those just in factory assembly alone!
