Extruder plate for wallace and makergear hot-end or j-head by pomalin Sep 16, 2012

Description

A plate to put on the X-carriage of the wallace and under the extruder to have possibility to put a makergear hotend with 36mm barrel, or a jhead. Because The X-carriage is too high to put this without that. It also have a 40mm fan mount to keep carriage and extuder cool.

Is there a SCAD file?
No, I have made it with blender, I'm not good with openscad, not at all, but I wish I was. Perhaps someday I will give a try. Perhaps soon. Perhaps.
