    ok I got the pro kit but also got a V6 kit and a cyclops what was I thinking...

    Ok so the V6 power pack had this in the bags see photo.

    Now this is my 1st printer so I am clueless here.

    I also have a bag with what looks like the head I should be using but it had not head sink. And yellow and silver wires.
    Then I have the Cyclops witch I get now I can use in this printer at all. I will make one for this or resell it to a friend.

    So I am a bit lost.

    volcano is the long block, this will help with changing nozzles to larger diameters to print quickly but with a lower quality. Most start with a standard v6

    I was referring to how typically people use larger nozzles like an .8mm nozzle with their volcano which means a larger layer height which means lower quality but faster prints.

    Nothing forcing you to go high layer height though. You could just enjoy the benefit of single thick shell and keep a low layer height.

    Right. If you want to print small, with lots of detail, then you want a 0.25 nozzle. Not sure if volcanos come in the size, but I think they might.

    @George Dossett Have a look at Richard Horne's latest post on G+ as he has dedicated his BigBox to printing with Volcano. He prints with a 1mm nozzle and 0.25mm layers and achieves excellent results.
