This is 'Version 2' of the popular E3Dv6 Bowden X-carriage mount for Prusa i3.
If you have a Prusa i3 and are upgrading your hotend to an E3Dv6 (Lite and clone compatible) with Bowden, then you'll need this hotend mount for your X-carriage.
As this design clamps the hotend to the mount, there's no chance of a wobbly hotend.
Cooling has been incorporated into this version, rather than a bolt-on after thought.
This updated design removes the clutter around the hotend so you can view the printing unobstructed.
A 50mm Radial/Blower fan is utilized to provide ample cooling for your prints resulting in sharp and detailed finishes.
You can purchase a fan from Banggood
3 Parts - the Mount, Clamp and Duct.
To clamp the E3D hotend, you'll need 2 x M4 screws with 20mm length and 2 x M4 nuts.
For the Duct, you'll need 2 x M3 screws with 6mm to 10mm length
For the Blower fan, you'll need 1 x M3 screw with 25mm length and 1 x M3 nut.
Note: If your X-axis end-stop is on the right hand side, you'll lose approximately 10mm on the X-axis because the blower fan is quite long.
Inductive sensor option - check the remixes section :)
Duct v1.1 added to support E3D v6 block with silicone sock.
