This extruder mounting bracket for the Tevo Black Widow will give you additional X-axis and Z-axis travel by angling the extruder motor away from the right-side Z carriage plate, moving the print head closer to the center of the X carriage, and by raising the extruder/hot end assembly by 18mm.

I have provided the mounting bracket in one-piece and two-piece options. You can decide whether to print the one-piece and deal with the extra supports to remove or using an extra low profile M5 screw and M5 nut to put the two-piece together. It may also be a good idea to glue the two-piece version together to improve rigidity.

I have also provided files for mounting the X-axis end stop at the very end of the X-axis extrusion. Choose either right or left depending on where you have your sensor located.

You will need this additional hardware to mount the bracket to the X carriage plate:

2 x M5 nylon insert lock nut
2 x M5x12mm screws (M5 x 10mm might work)

In addition, for the two piece you will need these to hold the two pieces together:

1 x Low Profile M5x10mm screw
1 x Standard M5 nut
Thread locker (optional)

For mounting the end stop sensor to the new end stop mount, in addition to the M4 screw and T-nut from the stock mount you will need:

1 x M3x10mm screw
1 x M3 nut

I made the two-part version and it works almost perfectly. Even though printed with PLA, the printhead seems a bit unsturdily attached to the black plate, after all, it is a huge mass.

One question though: is there a compatible layer cooling fan mount? I'm using this one (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1963986) as hot end cooler.


Tevo Black Widow Fan Duct with BL Touch Mount & Velocity Stack e3D v6 and Volcano

Before switching to a Titan extruder I was using the one piece version printed in ABS with 3 perimeters and 60% infill, and it was very sturdily connected to the X-carriage plate. I have heard others have been very happy with the two-piece version, too.

I am sure there are layer cooling fans that would work, but I have not printed anyone else's layer cooling fan designs so I can't point you to any one in particular. I have only recently ventured into the realm of using a print cooling fan, and I am working on my own design. Unfortunately, I do not have a product I am happy with, yet, so I can't share anything.
