Pleased to share this design. Took me a lot of tinkering. Being inside an enclosure, trying to change filament is a hassle - No longer haha! Swings easily 180 degrees. A huge stress relief!

  • Tried to save material/time by making the backing plate thinner.
  • Added markings for the sake of it.
  • Added support to increase strength without adding much weight.
  • Added a vent port to remove any excess heat generated from the extruder gear.
  • Made top holes elongated to allow a little wiggle room. You can move motor without having to dismantle the extruder and relocate the bracket and then reassemble. [YAY!]
  • Makes changing filament a breeze!!!
  • Ignore the attached arm, that's another project but you can see things can be added to the Swinger like a filament guide.

  • You'll need M4 nuts/bolts to mount to frame
  • You'll need 1xM4 10mm bolt and nut (Nylon lock nut if possible) to assemble The ExtruderSwinger pieces together. The nut might have to be pressed in.
  • M3 bolts for the extruder which you should already have.
