Version 2 is here!
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)
Print with >=40% fill.
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 ;)
