Could you make the v6 fang with a 60mm fan pls

Here is the Redesigned carriage for the Late 2017 model of the TRONXY X5S WITH MERLIN 1.1.7. They did listen to users on this issue. but the power supply still needs to be upgraded to get the bed to temp faster and to higher temps, mine can not go past 54c. got bad filament jams in the screw rod going thru the hot end, had to purchase new ones and rebuild my hotend. she is working good now. this is my First 3d printer. one heck of a learning experience for first timer. but im still glade i got the TRONXY X5S printer. Frame is Rock solid.

I have a Redesigned Medal carriage from the maker of this printer

dots are the belts they are separated and aligned correctly. so i will try out this mount becouse i would like to get an E3D V6 hotend. but you should redesign this so people with the New carriage design can use it.

thank you
Damian

Hey Damian, sorry the carriage didn't work for you. The plastic belt holders work fine on my printer. But tolerances are different for every printer. Also wasn't aware of a new carriage design for the X5S.

where is the Medal carriage that has the wheels on it ?? That is what the Belts should be connect to, Not this Plastic part. It can not handle the stress of jerks and moving the XY carriage around. I don't understand why you have the belts attached to this Plastic part ???? rebuild it so it screws on to the Medal carriage and thats it. The Belts should not be anywhere near this mount.

Make your own mount if you don't like this one.

Hey I liked the design but after printing it I realize that my heat sink is not fitting. Is it normal?

There should be a slight gap but not that big. Every printer is different so yours is printing slightly bigger. Try sanding it down a little. Also looks like you printed it flat. You need to print it where there is no supports in the belt holders.

I love the carriage design. But I'm having problems with the belts staying put and also the screw mount on the part cooling fan needs to be designed better. as soon as you put a screw into it, it breaks off.

Would you mind adding a second part cooling fan on the left side ?

Hey, I love the design! Quick question, does this use all of the existing hardware?

The fan screws can be reused, but you'll need longer m3 screws for the e3d clamp.

Hi
can you please have a look on your file:
E3D_Clamp_and_FanShroud

Can't open it in any slicer - some errors occur

Thats weird. I can download it and open it in repetierhost and cura. Were you able to download the others?
I add the file in here if you still can't download it.

Thanks, but downloading was not the problem.
I managed to fix the open mesh you can see in picture (damaged) attached by using meshmixer.
The result I put as E3D_Clamp_and_Fanshroud_V2.stl here.
I use Slic3r and the taken snapshot is from there.

I did also some minor changes on your complex CAD model for the carriage.
Is there any reason for the gap between the left belt clamp and the E3D Mount?
I hope not, because I closed it to make it more stable.
The ammount of triangles I reduced as much as possible.
Feel free to publish it, if you find it useful.

My X5S will arrive the next days, so looking forward to mount your E3D Carriage.
best regards, thanks
Michael

Thank you for the fix! I'm still learning to use some of these CAD programs and mesh mixers. I appropriate the help. Hopefully someone else likes the design. :) I'll publish these as the new files.

You are very welcome!
We are all learning - all the time.
