Not ready to go pro (reprappro that is), but want a step up from your old, worn out and heavy extrusion system? Then you're in the right place. This what I am calling a semi-professional x-carriage, in that it allows you to attach a single reprap pro bowden extruder to your prusa mendel or mendelmax (with a 50mm center-to-center spacing on the x smooth rods). I have had a great deal of success with this upgrade.

You can get the bowden parts from reprap pro here: http://www.emakershop.com/Seller=869 .you'll need to print the extruder and mounts too, get them here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20968.

There is a small foot sticking out the side, which is just a little nubbin I stick on to push my end-stop switch.

Which hotends are you using with this x-carriage, and how do you mount them?

It's the Tech3D one: http://tech3d.org/Hot-End-Pack1http://tech3d.org/Hot-End-Pack...

It has two M3 nuts with coil spring washers for mounting.
