This is a hotend mount I have made up for the BLV MGN Cube printer to allow the use of a Zesty Nimble extruder with a Slice Engineering Mosquito hotend. Please note, I have made this mount to use slightly shorter than standard screws (M3 x 35) to mount the Nimble. If normal length screws are used, they will collide with the Mosquito cooling fan.
[UPDATE - 28/11/2019] Created modular version, provided modular mounts for part cooling fan (5015 fan required), bltouch and DC42 IR sensor (via different bottom X-carriage piece). EDITCurrent bottom plate for dc42 mount removes endstop mount so don't use and please be patient while I mock up a new one.
[UPDATE - 27/11/2019] Found an alignment issue, this has been potentially fixed on the new bltouch version. I am yet to check and rectify on the others. Screw holes have been added to mount a part cooling fan. Still working on that part.
[UPDATE - 4/11/2019] Added mount for dc42 IR sensor. Please advise if this position causes any issues. The plug on the sensor will need to face away from the hotend for clearance....unsure if this will fit yet.
Offset for DC42 IR:
0 on x axis.
15.27 on the y axis.
[UPDATE - 3/11/2019] Added mount with BLTouch mount option.
Offset for BLTouch:
0.024 on Y
-21.847 on X
[UPDATE] I have uploaded a new version with an extra 3mm clearance between the heatsink and backplate for better airflow. Please advise if you find more clearance needed or if this requires any more tuning.
With the exception to the basic adaptor piece from Zesty Technology, and the x-carriage bottom piece (DC42 IR mount hack), the rest of this model has been made for scratch, so if you try this, please comment if there are any issues or you have any improvement ideas.
I believe 0.2mm layer height would be best for this model, some supports will be required. Please use Petg or ABS, basically anything that can handle heat as well as if not better than Petg.
