Alternative robust easy to maintain print head for the wilson 2. Should fit any i3 style printer with the 4 or 6 screw mounting on the plate.

Theres two fans, one uses three 40mm fans which of one is for the hotend cooling. The simplefan is a single 40mm alternative that you can use the default fan of the e3d with.

Whole thing should take about 8 m3 screws and 7 m4 screws of varying sizes. I don't have exact lengths at the moment so take a moment to check if you have everything you need.

This is a very early version and i'll make a more detailed BOM later as i keep refining the design.

I'll have the source in designspark mechanical format later on and for anyone interested in modifying the models.

The design allows the whole head assembly to be head adjusted to certain degree due to the loop holes between the mountplate and the mainbody.
