Hello everybody,
first of all, thanks for designing this.
I printed and installed it, here are some quick things that I found out, that are good to know in advance.

  • Make absolutely sure your endstop extension is printed flat, otherwise ther is a high risk of failing. Think about glueing it in place.
  • I printed the version with a cable chain mount, it broke while removing the support material. Zipties or excellent setup of your printer are
    the ways to go.
    -for getting the mount over the sleeves, heat it up with a soldering iron or something similar. maybe your printer nozzle works too, but i havent testet that one. might be a bit risky.
    -Put your motor in with the cables pointing up, as down doesn't work and left/right limits your Printspace.
    -no it won't work to well without getting a extruder cable extension, do yourself the favor and order it before you upgrade.( they are called
    stepper motor cable)
    -when i started increasing speeds my extruder started skipping, somewhere on thingiverse is a mod to increase the power of the spring, or
    just replace it with a new one while you are at it. also bumping up your nozzle temperature helps.
    -you will still need a bowden tube between the extruder and the nozzle, make sure its directly seated against the nozzle. also get a tube cutter or make one yourself. you will cut your tube somewhat often for this project, as getting it to the right length is somewhat difficult.

If I forgot something I will add it.
