This is a new and reinforced design of my previous. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1213802

A 40mm fan is needed to cool down the hotend and fits right onto the clamp_part.
4x M3-35mm (30mm is usable) screws is needed.

New buildvolume is: 205x200x179mm
Project file can be found here http://a360.co/2nYSYQ6

A part for cooling the filament is under development and will be uploaded once it is finish :)

Er det muligt at få original filen, så jeg kan lave et remix til direct drive? Det kunne være virkelig lækkert :)

Will this fit a maker select v2.1?

I don't know to be honest, but it will fit on any printer with 45mm spacing between the two rods :)

Got the previous one and it works really fine.
But since then im searching for a good solution to cool the
printing parts. On the most parts you find here the room to
mount is too small and it colide with the holder.. a combined solution would be the best ;)

I'm working on a 3rd version, that features cooling for the filament too - right now I'm using stationary fan beside the bed for cooling :)

Make sure to follow, so you get notified on release

This looks like it's for a bowden set-up. Am I correct? If so, do you have a non-bowden option?

Correct, it is for a bowden setup - I don't currently have a direct-drive configuration.

This is the simplest E3D v6 mount, and I already have a Noctua 40mm fan, so I'm really interested in this.

But how is the progress with the filament cooling part? And is it going to use a 50x15mm radial fan?

Also is this for the genuine or clone E3D v6?

Hi, thanks for your support.

The filament cooling part is on standby atm, but is differently something that I will continue on later.
The mount is for the genuine E3D.

any chance to get an stp file? wanna try to combine a titan extruder into it

What do you guys think about the design? Any ideas for improvements??

Hey, great model. I've printed and fit on my i3. How's the cooling fan mount going? It would be awesome to get it if you're finished. I'm looking at modifying the lower bearing block so I can use the cobra cooler.

Glad you like it! I don't have time to make some progress on it ATM.

I had an idea about tilting the fan a bit forward and letting it push air through a canal that could cool down the filament. But I guess it will be too difficult to print.
Another (maybe better) option would be to extend the fan-mount and use the stock fan to cool down the filament.

Right now I have a PC fan standing next to the bed, which I use to cool down the print. It works great so far :)

I uploaded new models with a minor change :)

How does the nozzle height compare to the stock MK10?

I don't know to be honest - I did not have that in mind when designing it, but I guess its within 5-8 mm. :)

I use custom endstop for the z-axis with a screw, which works great
