Ver 2 uploaded. Increased filament tube closer to the pulley drive
Added new motor mount to accommodate the smaller diameter size of the MK8 drive pulley, untested!
New VertX motor mount, added more hotend mounts. The VertX motor mount is best suited with the Replicator 2 lever extruder. Motor mount has been optimized for flexible filament.

2 - M3 nuts inserted into the base mount
Compatible with ivc's Spring-loaded Replicator 1 Drive Block
