GHAE with offset mount for makergear hotend by hallenberg Jul 11, 2012


Minor tweaks to Greg's Hinged Accessible Extruder http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8252 in order to allow using the makergear hotend with the wooden plate they provide.

The wooden plate is off center mounted by 3mm, which required a slight tweak of the base leadout and the motor mount angle to fit. It is also adjusted for 1.75mm filament.

None of the changes are destructive, you can easily get the stock extruder by setting mount_offset=0 and angle_offset=0.
