- Changed the ducts. Now all ducts will also fit on the Ender5. The 5015 duct supports the fan with no extra support. Also, the ducts will work for the V6 Volcano.
Modular print head to mount a Zesty Nimble Sidewinder on the Creality type print heads. This covers a wide range of printers.
The hot end mount is compatible with both the original hotend and the MicroSwiss hotend.
The advantage of the Sidewinder compared to the standard Nimble is the fact that the drive cable is horizontal. So if you have limited height due to an enclosure, for instance, the Sidewinder will help. If height is no problem, it is best to use the standard Nimble.
This mount is for mounting the Sidewinder with the drive shaft coming out to the side, pointing towards the Y stepper. So the drive cable loops horizontally around the left column.
There is a different version of Sidewinder mounts where the drive cable exits rearwards.
The standard Nimble also has it's own set of mounts: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3558524
There are two versions of ducting, one for the original fan and one for a 5015 radial fan.
Also included is a mount for the BL Touch and a mount for an induction sensor, like the one mounted on the CR-10Pro.
The offset for the BL-Touch is: X+30.3 Y+2.4
For the induction sensor, it is: X+35.2 Y-4.3
All these parts are Interchangeable with the other Nimble mounts below.
All sensor mounts and ducting is height adjustable.
For all printers with a printbed of 22x22cm, you can use the 75 cm drive cable. Anything larger, it is best to use the 95 cm drive cable.
The STL models are checked and optimised. The parts that need a different orientation to print properly are rotated to the preferred printing position.
