Effector (head assembly) for E3D V6 head on a mini Kossel, or any delta printer where the standard mini Kossel head is used.
I couldn't find an effector that suited my needs so i designed one of my own.
I'm currently using this effector on my mini Kossel and it works great. But if you find any issues or have suggestions for improvements just let me know. Also let me know if there is information missing that you think should be in this text.
I will update this thingi soon with assembly manual and pictures.
The Probe part is designed for a 2mm allen key and should be about 77mm long for the mechanical switch and also for the manually operated optical switch.
For the Optical Z-probe with magnet retraction the allen key needs to be 80-85mm long.
Use the part cooler with probe support for this one.
Thankyou Marco Robustini for suggesting this part and for your assistance during developing.

Probe offset is Y=-7,5mm X=-13. Probe should be orientated towards X tower.
Also note the orientation of the E3D V6 head in the picture.
Printed parts in ABS and PETG. Tried 0.2mm and 0.1mm layer thickness and both work well with a 0.4mm nozzle.
Printed my with 0.4 nozzle.
