I tried to modify the sketchup bowden mount by dob71 and gave up after a few nights. I made this one in OpenSCAD. It's a work in progress until I add all the math to make it fully parametric.
Edit the scad file as needed (I needed a different sized nut on mine), print, and enjoy.
I will post the bowden cap scad a bit later after I clean up the file.
Why try a bowden setup? It takes the mass and height of the Wades extruder and moves it to a non-moving portion of the printer (the frame).
I use http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/118/135/=kz7az9 for 3mm feedstock. It has a 6mm outer diameter. I used some nuts I had on hand, but not sure what size they are. I am confident they and imperial though.
