Ultimaker Generic HeadMount
by mechadense, published
With This single quick release coupling one can attach almost anything to the Ultimakers Printhead.
I'll soon release compatible toolheads for it (2012-04)
* two templates included (raw & cylinder)
* improved code quality (split in modules) capital lettered modules are meant to be printed or modified by the user
* male part redesignd for a better print orientation that yields more stability. Still compatible to (v1)!
* added option to close the slot and mount it by screwing not ziptieing for even more stability
* slotdepth is now parametric (by taking two measures of your printhead; look for lxy & lxyspace in the malecoupling file)
* generic ... mount any tool you like
* "quick" lock ... change the appandages on the fly
* ziptie (or threads) only mount & thus non invasive
... the coupling >itself< is removable without disassemblage of the head
* lightweight & almost no loss of printing space
... the coupling can stay on the printhead all the time
* does not block the thing:
"Bowden Clamp for Ultimaker (Heater End)" by owen
* one part design ... quick print
* funny red cross shape fitting to a giant syringe appendage (pasteprinting)

If you lead the zipties below the threaded rods like in the picture only two endstops will need prolongation of about 6mm (this is both in v1
amp; v2). The only way to avoid print-space-loss by design without severely reducing sturdiness is by making this part a complete replacement of the two adjacent or all four of the vertical walls of the printhead. But I didn't want to make it so intrusive that a complete disassemblement of the printhead is necesary for installation.
So the home endstops (as well as the right/front endstops) not being actionable is by design with V2 of your headmount. What about version 1?
I Intended to use this, but IMO for different reasons its a bad solution:
A ultra simple solution would be to make cuboid blocks that slide onto the endstop-protrusions of the wooden bushing blocks (friction fit)
Make them in different colors or mark them for the different sized toolheads you('ll) have

When mounting it with zipties make sure they go BELOW the threads (see image) this way the left and rear endswitches will retain functionality. In the front and on the right only a few mm printspace will be lost.
Or create your own:
Heck you could even modify a coat hook to be mountable ;)
