I uploaded the file called duckbill
Any chance you could post an SCAD for the extruder? The motor mount holes are about 1mm off so I can only use two mount holes to mount my motor or else the gears won't mesh properly. I can fix it without, but it would be much easier with an SCAD.
sorry for taking so long to answer, but I've been traveling. sources are not in scad, I have them in solidworks. if you are interested you the e-mail sending
What bearings are used in the x idler? I have a 624ZZ but it's too big to fit in the bearing guides and the hole in the idler looks like it's sized for something smaller.
623zz
This is nice! i especially like the fan mount. What are the teeth set up for the x-carriage. I have gt2 belts and was wondering what the stl was exported as.
teeth are for T2.5 carriage in a few days will put the GT2 version
Awesome, i am really thinking about taking my i3 apart just to put this carriage on there. nice job.
Can anybody possibly make a single plate with the i3 parts and hang it somewhere?
Nice work! I have been wanting to make an extruder with the motor rotated 90 degrees like this one to make the profile "thinner" (to provide room for a heat sink on my extruder motor, or perhaps dual extruders).

But, the idler arm for the extruder seems to be missing. Could you please add it or provide a link to the one you used?
Thank you. if you mean the link is thingiverse.com/download:60195 idler.
Is that an M10 y-corner? It would be cool to have an M8 version in this set, but of course it should be easy to modify.
sorry for taking to answer. I'm working on a modification to rods 10 and 6 in which you have to change the upper and lower brackets.
Stabilizers for the Z-axis threaded rods will stabilize the top end at the price of extra motion for x-carriage causing wobble.

thanks, with straight threaded rods should not have that problem.
