    I have a Robo 3d printer.

    The extruder heater has failed and I need to get it working again reasonably quickly.

    I was wondering if installing the V6 would be the simplest and easiest way to fix the problem.

    Would it be a "drop in" compatible component or would I need to do other work in order to fit it.
    The robo uses a RAMPS board, would I need to make any modifications to this in order to make it work.

    Thanks

    Tim thanks for that, but from now on can we start referencing this wiki: http://wiki.robo3d.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ

    You could also just use the heater cartridge for the hexagon if you don't want to go through the whole replacement process
