Thingiverse commentaar:
If you have a Prusa i3 and are upgrading your hotend to an E3D v6 with Bowden, then you’ll need this hotend mount for your X-carriage.

As this design clamps the hotend to the mount, there’s no chance of a wobbly hotend.

NOTE: Added dual fan mounts with fan duct
21 May 15 – Added ‘clone’ carriage and clamp for non-genuine E3D hotend
28 Jun 15 – Added carriage clamp with side blow fan mount

Intstructions:
2 Parts – The carriage and the clamp.
Print both at 0.2mm with 30% infill.

To clamp this unit together, you’ll need 2 x M4 screws with 20mm length and 2 x M4 nuts.

Fan option added:
You can now attach a 50mm fan on either/both sides of the carriage clamp.
Side Blow Fans also 😉

E3D v6 Bowden X-carriage mount Prusa i3 v2

Thingiverse commentaar:

If you have a Prusa i3 and are upgrading your hotend to an E3Dv6 (Lite and clone compatible) with Bowden, then you’ll need this hotend mount for your X-carriage.

As this design clamps the hotend to the mount, there’s no chance of a wobbly hotend.

Cooling has been incorporated into this version, rather than a bolt-on after thought.

This updated design removes the clutter around the hotend so you can view the printing unobstructed.

A 50mm Radial/Blower fan is utilized to provide ample cooling for your prints resulting in sharp and detailed finishes.

You can purchase a fan from Banggood

3 Parts – the Mount, Clamp and Duct.
To clamp the E3D hotend, you’ll need 2 x M4 screws with 20mm length and 2 x M4 nuts.
For the Duct, you’ll need 2 x M3 screws with 6mm to 10mm length
For the Blower fan, you’ll need 1 x M3 screw with 25mm length and 1 x M3 nut.

Note: If your X-axis end-stop is on the right hand side, you’ll lose approximately 10mm on the X-axis because the blower fan is quite long.

Inductive sensor option – check the remixes section 🙂
Duct v1.1 added to support E3D v6 block with silicone sock.

Dual Extruder Mount – E3D V6 & V5 or J Head

Met deze uitvoering kan je 2 E3D Bowden extruders monteren.

Thingiverse commentaar:

A dual extruder mounting system for a Bowden feed tube setup on a Prusa i3 with multiple versions:

  • One with an 8mm Z offset (V2).
  • One without any offset (V4).
  • One with a 6.5mm Z offset (V5).

The clamp will securely hold any of the groove mount extruders (16mm/12mm/16mm) such as the E3D and J-Head Style extruders with one M4 nut & bolt.

The V2 files are designed to hold one of the old style Ebay J-Head Extruders from China which is (mine is anyway) 8mm taller than the new and shorter E3D V6 extruders. You should definitely check your Z Offset before printing these files as I’m sure there are many variations out there.

The V4 files have no offset and are for mounting two extruders which are both the same height.

The V5 files have a 6.5mm offset on the left Extruder. It incorporates the improvements made in length and slight improvements in extruder spacing (moved 2mm closer).

The part was written to try and ensure that the extruders remain as true to center as possible however there is a slight offset as I needed to take into account that the old style J-Head has a slightly larger diameter heat-sink (and cooling fan mount).

V2 Specs:
Backing Plate Dimensions: 44.5mm (W) x 44.5mm (H) x 6mm (D)
Neck Overall Length: 35mm measured from the center point of the extruders
Neck Thickness(Z Height): 12mm
Overall Y Offset: 41mm measured from the center point of the extruders
Nut/Bolt Dimensions: M4 – a large range of Bolt lengths are accommodated

Left Extruder Z Offset: 8mm
Left Extruder Fan Housing Clearance: 35mm total half this from the center of the extruder
Right Extruder Fan Housing Clearance: 30mm as above
Clamping Collar Thinnest Wall Thickness: 6mm

V3 Specs
All specs are the same as above apart from having only 30mm clearance around each extruder (that is approx. 15mm radius from the center of each extruder). These have been removed and replaced by the improved V4 files.

V4 Specs
30mm clearance around each extruder (radius = 15mm from the center). I have updated these files (from the V3 specs) for a better fit onto the backing mount for less post print work and increased the step out (neck length) slightly to better utilize the print bed area along the Y axis. There is also a slight increase in the diameter that is cut out for each of the bolt holes.

V5 Specs
Please see the notes above.
