    Hi,

    Im researching if I need external cooling of the hotend in a heated chamber.

    Assuming I only want to print PLA and my chamber is held at 30-50C do I need to feed room temp air from outside the chamber or what is the max temp the hotend can deal with?

    Theoretically if the cold end is held at something below the glass transition temp of PLA it should be fine I guess.
