I added code for mountings for a Parcan hot end with its peek block drilled with 30mm spaced M4 holes.
I have also added a parameter to add a filament guide which I know greg is not keen on adding to his design.

I dunno if your still around but anyway to make this with the mount for the jhead the scad file doesn't seem to have all your mods :(

ya know the 4 screw mount:)

seems like you moved the hole for the filament slightly over would also be good if we could reduce the motorholder thickness.

not advanced enough in openscad yet to fix these things myself

I wish

but great idea :)


I found it nigh on impossible to set up the regular version without the filament walking off the hobbing. This seems to have fixed it right up.

Is there a reason why the print in this thing's thumbnail is back-to-front? :S

Other than the Y-axis on my printer was inverted for a couple of weeks?

no not really ;-)

Inverted version worked well enough to print its replacement though

Thanks, I find I really need the filament guide. My copy of Greg's without it keeps failing with the filament wandering to the edge and falling between the bearing and the side wall after about 20 minutes of printing.

Follow-up - I've been printing with this for
gt; 2 weeks now and it's solid as a rock. My filament no longer wanders all over the place and falls off the edge of the idler bearing.

Wayy better design I will reprint mine A.S.A.P!! Thanks!
