Are you unsure whether you should pick the heat insert version of the EVA, versus the hex nut version? Well many people have been asking which one is right for me, and I always say it depends on your use case. If you are trying to push the limits of the printer, and don't like to fidget with the pull-through method with the hex-nuts; the heat inserts are an awesome way to improve your 3D printer parts.

Not only can you improve the build time by using heat inserts, you will have better strength and rigidity by locking the parts together via inserts. The parts must be designed to use these inserts, but once done so you can easily remove and re-install parts without the concern of lost hex nuts.

I wanted to start a discussion on here about this, and hope to hear anyone's view and opinion on why or why-not would you choose Heat Inserts over Hex Nuts? It's a great way to hear any negative views we have not yet encountered.
