This is an adaption we have made to wade's geared extruder to be compatible with Makerbot's Cupcake CNC and Thing-o-Matic.

We just add a longer base with the holes in place to be installed in a cupcake or ToM.

More information about the extruder:

The STL file has the holes for our hotend V5. If you have a different hotend just edit the scad file like you would do with the original wade.scad file included in the prusa mendel package.

I feel like you might have meant Greg's hinged extruder rather than Wade's, given that all the support parts you show are for the Wade's.

Granted, this Thing is 2 years old, but maybe there's a Cupcake resurgence about to happen and other people can be helped by the knowledge.

Will that long base fit on the Cupcake build platform?

No; even at a 45 degree angle it hangs over quite a bit.
