Interesting.
I had no idea anyone was really using this thing or I might have put more effort into publishing some more evolved designs.
As it stands i pretty much just got so far in the design, was using it, and got distracted by other things. At one point I was using an old backplate to secure the cables, but after a design change found it just as easy to just strap the cables to the rear latch. Not a great solution, but forking tends to result in semi-abandoned designs.
So yeah, just FYI: this is mine right now :)

The system is great! I believe that no other carriage can allow to change from a 0.25 nozzle to a 1.2 volcano hot end , with all the cooling apparatuses ready to go , in just seconds.
In my case , the real reason is the possibility to install a laser ( work in progress )
The only missing pieces are the final details : this bracket , some adapters , part cooling options
Just out of curiosity I linked your design in a couple of forums , maybe some of the users will like your solution and help with the final touches !

I suspect your forum links are the only reason I am now getting people post remixes/makes at all :)

FYI: In light of knowing that people are actually using it, i thought I should let you know:

It's nowehere near complete, but iv'e been sitting on it for a long time so I figureed I may as well upload the incomplete version. Maybe even just the simpler attachment mechanism will, in itself, will have some appeal to you.

If the system is as rock solid as the previous one , that will be a great new version!
The quick electronic connection could be the real upgrade , a similar system may be adapted even on the “non magnetic “one
