Petsfang for Prusa MK3
So…. With the success of the v2 Petsfang and many of the other iterations of my design I have had some Prusa I3 owners wanting to see if I could design it around the MK3.
The new mount incorporates the upper half of the stock MK3 mounting plate unchanged and has the stock MK3 with the Bond Tech dual gear extruder and the lower portion is redesigned to capture the E3Dv6 heat sink air and exhaust it to the sides, away from the nozzle and provide a support for the duct. I will adapt it as needed during testing. It locates the Pinda Probe in the same location as stock for leveling from the probe points.
As with all my ducts it is to be printed flat face down with supports from the build plate only.
Make sure to cut threads for the 3 holes in the base holding the duct before you mount any parts. It will be a lot easier to mount the duct with those threads pre-cut.
In theory, with the MK3 dual rails the mount should be very solid even with the additional height.
I'll let you figure out the best orientation for the other parts.
Please feel free to send me info on this. As with all other mods, I will listen and evaluate your suggestions. I can be reached as a PM in Facebook or an email to:
Per your recommended settings.
I'm open to any suggestions as to orientation, infill, filament,etc. Once you are successful let me know and I'll post it.
Added 2mm of vertical adjustment to allow for clearance around the E3Dv6 silicone sock. Also added this clearance around the top of the E stepper motor.
Added new extruder base profile adjustment per the R3 Prusa revisions for flex filament. and Bond Tech Extruder.
