MendelMax Z Dual Bowden Mount
by Pi-Ratte, published
This is a Dual Bowden mount for the Mendelmax 1.x.
There are 3 versions either print both parts (left+right) or print the complete one. If you print the complete one you will need to open up the sides to slide it in.
I added another split version that has long holes for the extruder mount.
I also uploaded the scad have fun with it if you want to build you own Z-mounts for the mendelmax
Very simple to assemble.
Just print the parts, Drill the Fillament hole, Clean the edges and make shure that it slots into the Misumi Extrusion. Drop the nuts into the extrusion (yes you can do it from the top no need to open up the side). screw the parts to the Misumi and slide them together. Fix them toghether with a M5 screw on the top. and them fasten the Misumi Nuts.
Screw holes are M5. If you put the nut in the correct direction then you just need to slide the mount and the hole should be over the nut.
The Extruder screw traps are M4.
The fillament Nut Trap is M6.
The top joining nut trap is M5
The Extruder Mount in the New LongHoles version should fit most extruders or if your fillament hole is not in the standard position. You can also use the scad to make your won mount holes.
The Left Extruder mounting/filament holes are rotated by 180 so that both extruder motors point outwards.
Bowden Mount works like "Bowden Cable Coupling for RepRap. Thing:1899" i usualy also let the bowden stick out and then i drill the filament hole of the extruder so that the bowden slides in there.
