Starting with the right hotend:
Step 1: Remove the 2 screws (in blue) securing the cooling fan using a 2.5 mm hex key. Move the fan to the side for the next steps.
  

Step 2: Loosen the hotend set screw (in blue) using a 2.5 mm hex key. Remove the stock hotend. 
  

Step 3: Loosen the heater and temperature sensor set screws (in red) using a 1.5 mm hex key. Remove the heater and temperature sensor from the hotend.
  

Repeat steps 1-3 for the left hotend.
     

Step 4: Remove the 2 screws (in green) securing the back cover of the extruder using a 2 mm hex key. 


Step 5: Remove the 2 screws (in blue) securing the extruder connection board using a 2.5 mm hex key. 
     
You may want to pull the L-shaped piece covering the screw terminals out for better access when wiring.

Step 6: Loosen the screw terminals (in yellow) using a 5/64" (or 2 mm) flathead screwdriver. Remove the heaters and temperature sensors from the terminals, as well as from the back of the extruder. 
     

Installation

Step 1: Follow steps 2 through 7 of the Copperhead Installation Instructions to assemble the Standard G2 Copperhead Hotend. For step 5, follow the instructions for a cartridge temperature sensor. For step 7, install the heat break into the Raise3D Pro2 stock heat sink using a 1.5 mm hex key. 

Step 2: Install both the right and left Copperhead Hotends. Tighten the hotend set screws u sing a 2.5 mm hex key.
  
The Copperhead Hotends should be oriented so that the Slice Engineering logo is facing outwards on both sides.

Step 3: Route the Industrial Heater and Type K Thermocouple wires through the back and over to the board to be wired. 


Step 4: Wire both Industrial Heaters and Type K Thermocouples according to the terminal labels. Tighten the screw terminals using the flathead screwdriver.
  

The Type K Thermocouple follows the ANSI United States color code, where yellow is positive and red is negative.

Step 5: Ensure strain relief and cable management. It is recommended to use a zip tie. Replace the back cover and tighten the 2 screws using a 2 mm hex key.
  

Step 6: Replace and secure both side cooling fans using a 2.5 mm hex key.
  

Step 7: Complete the calibration procedures and a PID tune. Refer to the Raise3D instructions on calibrating the nozzle heightTo perform a PID tune, click the gear icon in the top right corner of the touch screen > More Settings > Hardware > PID Settings > Auto Tuning
