Ive got a CR-10 and a zesty on a V6 that I really want to upgrade to a chimera water cooled. Anyway this could mount to a CR-10 carriage?

Looks like its half way there, it seems like it will only fit one heater block, I'm looking to set up dual extrusion with 2 zestys, along with an ezabl bed sensor.

No, this is with a dual Nimble, I just didn't show you the second one. And the heater block is way oversized compared to the actual Cyclops+ block, to be on the safe side.
Only thing I don't have on there yet is the sensor. What size is it?

It's the larger of the two, I believe 18mm? I sincerely appreciate your help by the way, I'm guessing this is Brian, fantastic customer service!!!!!

18 mm, I will see if I can fit it in somewhere.
Nope, this is Lykle, I do all of the design work.

Could we modify it to mount on a 4 sided exoslide? That would provide a solid mounting point in the rear for the EZABL!!!

Added the files to the CR-10 Print head thing.

Nimble V1 print head for Creality type.

Excellent work, my initial thought involved hanging it over the carriage and mounting it on the back side.

is it just me or are there some mounting holes for the nimbles missing

No, it was me. So I added them. Thanks.
