I know this is old, but what is the exact distance between the holes for the dual extruders? I don't have a digital caliper.

The centers of the J-Heads in the dual version are too far apart such that the insert will not fit into the Rostock platform. Since the circumference of the PEEK of the J-head fouls the hole in the platform that the insert fits into.

Did you try my derived version? I tweaked it quite a bit.

No haven't tried yours. Will give it a go though thanks

Great design, you read my mind! I just published a derived version with several improvements, including printed Bowden clamps and support for triple extruders (if you can configure electronics to support that...), and some improvements for printability. BTW, in your version your mounting holes were a little off, so I just gave it the same 20 holes as the effector.

The single jmount doesn't appear to line up with the center hole on the cap piece.

I just uploaded the corrected files. Sorry about that. I had fixed it and had not had a chance to upload the revisions.
