I like your design and this would be probably my choice to print soon for my upgrade.
Have few questions regarding the fan duct for the 5015:

  • Is it a very similar one (if not based on it) to the "Mistral 2.1a"?
  • If it is based on the Mistral, is the "airflow spliter" sitting exactly in the middle or is it displaced a bit as in the "original"? (Can not clearly see it here on thingiverse)
  • On your renderings and on your photo, the fun duct ends (where the air flow comes out) are not centered / symmetrical to the nozzle. Why? Intention? Does not matter?

Hi, I'm very glad you like my project.

Yes the fan duct is based on the Mistral 2.1a and if the air flow is not centered for space reasons (I had already designed and printed the main support), however the direction of the air has never caused me problems during the prints.

did you happen to measure the BL touch probe offset for Marlin ?

here is what I am using

define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 28 // X offset: -left +right [of the nozzle]

define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -3 // Y offset: -front +behind [the nozzle]

I was going to ask you if you could add a bed leveling sensor mount but you beat me to it lol. very nice looking mount. great job.
