    I am trying to assemble the E3D-V6 full. I read the http://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/E3D-v6_Assembly Guide , unfortunately I got confused with the photos in the guide and I am not sure which side should I Screw the Nozzle into the Heater Block. I am attaching Photos of the Heater Block I received.

    Thanks In Advance !!

    I would say the side with two screw holes, which places the nozzle closest to the heater (upper side in your first photo).

    Regards

    I was also thinking that is the correct side , but in the Photos in the assembly guide the it shows the nozzle screwed in the side with one screw hole and it is confusing because it is the side far from the header block in the version I received.

    Left, If you look at the sock there is an indentation for the screw holding in the sensor.

    Good Afternoon, the correct side to screw it into is the side with the two screw holes, uppermost in your first picture, as this means that the molten plastic has leth distance to travel from the melt zone.
