2 Prepare hotend

Clip the thermistor harness [AS-CB0048] to the hotend assembly [AS-HE0019] and carefully wrap the wires around the heatsink, as shown. Make sure that the pins are flat against the back of the heatsink so they can't get bent.

Place the hotend assembly at the bottom of the bag [SH-PG0003] and carefully roll it up before sealing the bag allowing as much of the air to escape as possible.

Now take the bottom flap and fold it over the two side flaps we brought in towards the middle, as shown.

Now fold the top flaps and fold them over the bottom flaps, as shown.
