Hi! thanks for sharing your design.
I was wondering if you could post a pic of the finished assembly, and maybe (if you have time), go into a little bit of detail on the process. Seems easy enough, but given the general sensitivity to assembly these things have...

Thanks in advance!

Hi giogio,

I posted a picture of the mount on one of my K8200s.

You can see the heads of the two small wood screws that hold the mount onto the aluminum extruder bracket. Then the E3D simply "clicks" into the bracket from the side. As mentioned in the description, I also had to slightly enlarge the filament feed hole between the two screws by drilling, to accommodate the black plastic ferule at the top of the E3D. You will need to screw down the E3D adapter before you attach the motor and extruder drive.

I hope this helps you see how to use the part.
