Anycubic Vyper Paid Upgrades

The Anycubic Vyper is already pretty well equipped right from the factory, but there’s still a few upgrades which can be done for it to make it better.

In this article I will share some of the Anycubic Vyper upgrades I recommend doing to improve your printing experience and minimize downtime. Before you start upgrading your printer, make sure you read the 3D Printer Upgrades for Beginners article where I explain more about when and why to upgrade your 3D Printer.

Installing a bi-metal heat break is probably the most recommended Anycubic Vyper upgrade, and one which brings quite a lot of improvements to your printing experience. First, you will be able to print higher temperature materials without worrying about the PTFE tube getting damaged.

The second reason why you would want to upgrade to a bi-metal heat break is the improved thermal performance of the hotend. Having a better delimitation between the hot zone and the cold zone of the hotend will allow you to have a bit more control over the filament and lower your retraction distances.

One of the more popular bi-metal heat breaks for the Anycubic Vyper is this one from Amazon. You can also go with the Slice Engineering Copperhead Standard G2 which is 5mm shorter, but it can work. Bi-metal heat breaks for Anycubic Vyper can be bought from the following websites:AmazonBanggoodAliexpress. If you want even better filament control, then you can also look into upgrading the PTFE tube with one that has better internal tolerances.

The most popular PTFE tube is the Capricorn XS which has a 1.9mm internal diameter. This PTFE tube will improve the filament control, but don’t expect incredible changes.

Some people like to point out that it’s also better when it comes to the thermal performance resistance.

Unfortunately, I don’t agree. PTFE is still PTFE so I don’t recommend going over 240C for longer periods of time, to avoid burning the tube and release harmful fumes.
