after printed and assembled it, it looks nice , but before I install it I realized this configuration will shorter the Z axis by 7-8 cm
I am using a Micromake D1 and its default rod space is about 42 instead of 40, I wasn't aware of it and now I am printing a matching rail carriage part to make rods parallel again.

It would be awesome to replace the 30mm fan with a 40mm. It looks like there is plenty of space there. What do you think?

更换40mm的30mm风扇将会非常棒。 看起来有很多的空间。 你怎么看?

Thank you for this nice design. Is it possible to get the STEP files?

Very nice, I am using it on my He 3D K200, i printed a draft in PLA, any issues using PLA long term?

The problem with PLA long term is that if the fan cooling the radiator fins fails, the hot end can heat up the part enough to melt the effector. As long as you're not concerned about hat, and it doesn't happen, you're probably OK.

Does this fit the v6?

Wow, this is very good project. I like. Good job :)

Hi, printing this now. Great design, elegant and slim. Which carriages are recommended to match with this effector? Thanks for sharing your design!

Does this bolt up to the standard Mini Kossel end effector, or do you have to print the file you provided?

i can tell you that the e3d lite version is fitting perfect , the prints are now 100% better .

is a lite version e3d also fitting?

Awesome design! Thank you for posting!


I do effector E3d V5 for Kossel on hotend you can give the source file kssel effector e3d v6 for a change?

what a really good design!!!

thanks joequ, you're the beeeest

What a beautiful design. Total newbie here. Anyone know of a design for an effector that will fit a Chimera as well as a capacitive/inductive z probe? Thanks in advance!

I was able to fit this just about perfectly to a different hotend with a thicker groove simply heating the plastic part at the collar and pressing the hotend in place. But yes, the original design files would be pretty cool to get. :-)

Hi, Sir. Can you share V5 version or the CAD file for me to remix to V5 ?

Great work, Any chance to the parts as IGES or STEP format?!

Great model indeed. I would be very glad too if you could share the .stp or .igs files because I'd like to use it with another platform (one with magnetic joints, and also change the angle of the air ducts).

Any chance of making 340 fan version? I cant find any silent 3030 fan...


yes, designed for e3d_v6. use 2 4010fan and 1 3010fan

E3D v6 i asume?
