Summary

This is my Titan Extruder Bracket with Cable management bracket.

UPDATE: I have made the access to the Adjuster Screw to accommodate the new Thumb Screw Adjuster. All other dimensions are identical to my original.

There are some pros and cons with my design but the more I use it the more I prefer the orientation.

I have the adjuster screw at the back and on this setup with the Wilson II rack and pinion Z end stop it is a little hard to access. I cut down a alan key and although it's a little fiddly it get the job done. The pros are worth it... being able to use the large gear to wind in and out the filament is alone gold. Being able to clean the drive gear is easier than other designs and general access is good.

Note: This specific to the Wilson II X carriage with the Rack and Pinion Z end stop combined with a genuine E3D V6. If you are using a generic hotend it will most likely work and at the worst you will lose a little Z height.

If someone wants to use this on a non Wilson II Printer it will work fine but if you can give me some dimensions I can offset the bracket up which will give you some Z Axis height back but also give you clear access to the adjuster screw.

Hole pitch for the X carriage is 23mm x 23mm

Oh and I painted my Titan adjuster nut Red so I can see it.

You will need:

4x M4 Nuts
4x M4 Bolts

1x 2.5mm alan key cut to 10mm

There is a spacer for those without any cable management.

Hi ant0ny!

I printed your mount and assembled it. I noticed that, at least for my Wilson 2, there's not much clearance between the pinion and the hotend. Here's a picture: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByMIutOj83VSc3EzUmtKOFNja28. Did you have this issue? Also do you have a 3D file I can modify in Autodesk Inventor?

Thanks and great design btw!

hey... thanks. Are you using a genuine E3Dv6? maybe the body of a non genuine is shorter?

I see the screws holding the Z switch is not allowing the switch to retract flat (plus the screw length) I put these together with a small zip tie and if you look at the part there is a groove for the zip tie to lay in allowing the arm to retract more.

I'll put up the IPT file for you.

Yep it's a genuine E3D V6.

I noticed the screws too and I'll replace them with a ziptie asap. Without the screws, I think there will be enough clearance but only around 2mm which should be enough but it's pretty tight.

Thanks for uploading the file!

No probs. I don't have a Wilson currently to check... I sell them as quick as I can build them but you only need a few mm... remember the higher the clearance from probe to nozzle tip, the less you will have in Z travel.

With the ipt you will be able to move the bracket more to the right if needed as well. I set this up for a 40mm motor length but if you have a newer shorter motor you can get the nozzle better centered form memory.

Ant0ny, thanks for this design! I'm printing it right now. Are you using one fan to cool the hotend and the print? Is it working out for you? Would you mind sharing the stl file you used?

No probs. I use my remix fan duct for PLA http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1678339 and for ABS or PC (polycarbonate) I use the original fan the came with the E3Dv6. You can see in the pic I have a plug on the fan wire and I just swap to which fan/duct setup I need for what I'm using.
