This was the 1st thing I printed on my UM! Even before any calibration cubes! I wanted that material feeder secured! Thanks for the model Moon!

Glad you like it. It was also one of the first thing I ever designed :)

Nice one :)
I printed it really fast and touched it before it cooled down enough, so it has a slightly different shape now. But it works still as expected. Thank you!

You could add and STL for maxy's 'Ultimaker quiet retraction' http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53690http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
The armHeights should be around 15 and 17.5. But I'm not sure, as I have a slightly modified feeder.

Improving on what is already good, it works even better with a less steep slope, slightly thinner:

armHeight1=4.5;
armHeight2=6.5;

Downloaded it. Printed it. Jammed it in. Love it. Thanks! 8-)
