Any chance you have a stp file for the model cooling fan shroud?

I am sorry, there are no STP files available for this E3D mount, however there are Solidworks files available for the newer version of the E3D mount for Troublemaker v2. You can find the files here: https://github.com/IRNAS/Troublemaker2

If you could embed small fan into the head, you could spare additional 10mm. As seen on picture 4, there is a lot of material for no real purpose. ;)

Very true, however the additional 10mm is not required as this does not limit the printing space. Embeding it would however make the part slightly more difficult to print.

It fits on Ultimaker Original (one), should fit on Ultimaker 2 as well.

Does it fit on Ultimaker 1 ?

The design has been updated, second generation has been released!

What fan size is this made for? 40 mm.? 50 mm.?

Source files posted. Inventor Fusion document and STP model for use with many packages.

Hi, perhaps you can share the source files as well?

I'm looking for an adaptable design that can mount an E3D hotend, but with a different inter-plane distance for the inner rods. I wont be be using and bearings (yet), just plain PLA, so I'd need a way to tighten the running surfaces as well. Did you make this in solidworks or OpenScad?

How can you connect the teflon bowden tube to the extruder head in this design?

Pneumatic fitting screws into the E3D head directly, not into the mount.

With a pneumatic fitting as can be seen here: http://www.thingiverse.com/make:43658http://www.thingiverse.com/mak...

I'm using a Pisco PC6-01T.

E3D Hotend mount for Ultimaker
by mgg942

Thanks. Unfortunately my v4 E3D does not have a threaded bottom. Is it the v5 E3D hotend you are using?

Yes, I am using v5 (or v4.2 as some call it) with a thread for a pneumatic connector.

Very nice reworking of an already excellent design.
Followed your suggestions though I used 100 mm/s rather than 120 mm/s print speed. Made in DiamondAge PLA in 2 hours 39 minutes.
Only issue was minor stringing at the discharge end of the fan duct. I printed at 210 C. I guess that the stringing would have been less at 200 C.
