Nice design. Works well.

I seem to be having trouble with heat creep. Stock fans. Any suggestions?

So I was definitely getting heat creep. The fans aren't close enough to stop clogging. I cut off the bottom part of the bracket and was able to squeeze the stock E3D fan onto the heat sink, but I'd only be able to fit one extruder.


Did you also change thermistors from CTR to NTC?

Hey! Nice work! I've been thinking about doing a similar thing to the Leapfrog Creatr I use as well. Do you have more details about how you changed the extruder motor mount, specifically what stl files you used?


Hey, I used the original aluminium block where the motors where mounted on originally. I drilled new holes in the top plate and mounted the block there. However, it's a bit tricky to get the fillament through at the moment

Great design!!!! Are you able to feed the filament correctly? Is the bowden setup working properly?

Hi, Sorry for the late reply.
The feeding of the filament is kinda tricky (but works) and the bowden works, but i'm having trouble dialing in the retracts, so i'm planning on reverting back to Direct drive

I know this is 3+ years old, but I suspect you were getting clogging due to heat creep.
