Thanks for great design.
btw there is no hole on backplate. Is this right? or should make some hole after printed?

My compliments to the designer for this great upgrade.
I am running this "printhead" now for weeks 24/7 without any failure. Additional benefit is that because of massively reduced weight (I would guess half weight to the original) I can run my Tornado 50% faster than before and still receive improved print results (90mm/s for PETG).

I printed the backplate and the chimera holder in colorfabb PA-CF since these parts are mechanically under more force, all other parts are PETG or ABS.

I would suggest any Tornado user to use this design!

I am using this now in a printer design I came up with with an adapter, and so far it works well. I would like to play with the fan shrouds to run some experiments, any chance you could provide these files?

I would love to see a prusa variant of this, any chance you can make one or provide some source files?

i dont have a prusa printer... have u a link for me? generally u can add it on every printer with linear guide.... for Prusa i need to design a new backplate... but I don't have measures off it :-) if u send me some data where u want install it. i can check that and maybe made it possibly.

I'm printing your mount at the moment and am going to run some experiments. In the mean time, would it be possible to add the chimera+ compatibility. The distance between the filament paths has been increased from 18 to 20 mm

i checked it twice and uploading (33mm space and 18-20mm)

Ciao, Can it be installed on a Tronxy X5s ?

sorry, I don't have this printer :-) so I cant say that :-)

buy me one and I will mod it laugh

Can you also provide this files as .stp file?

what will u try? maybe i can help u :-)

i think it would be helpful to have a stp file for the overall construction.
A stl file is for that quite bad.

Does u need it as a guide for how to "assembling"? or for modify and rebuild?
