Just waiting on the parts for the piezo sensor, and the magnets and I should be able to get this installed.. Cover printed in PLA+, base printed in PETG. Hopefully the PETG will hold up to the heat, although the first thing I'm going to print is another base in ABS. If the design works out well enough for me, I'll end up doing it in ABS-PC.

That's a very nice print! No ghosting what so ever! What printer did you use?

CR10S Pro, the cover (grey) is in PLA, the mount is printed in PETG. There is some slight ghosting on the PETG, but it's not bad at all (and it was my first print with PETG on that printer). The cover was maybe the 4th or 5th thing I've printed on that printer as well, as I just got it last Thursday. It looks like the springs and sensor I ordered are going to take a couple weeks to get here, so I won't be able to upgrade just yet.

Both were printed using Simplify3D for slicing.

In that case your CR-10S Pro performs very well! My CR-10 S5 (500x500x500mm) has a lot more ghosting. I have ordered linear guide rails to upgrade the entire motion system and I will also stiffen the frame in the hope of lessening the ghosting on my machine. So i'm also waiting to do my next upgrade.

Great idea and the tooless cover design looks awesome! I'm not in need of a hot end for my printer, but if that changes will check this out.

Saw a post about this extruder housing, came here to check it out, as I'm researching the many different kinds of ABL. I have to say this is one of the best and well put together documents for assembly and operation of a DIY assembly I've seen. It's also as good as any so called professional assembly instruction. I've been an engineer for 40 years and I know the effort it takes to do this. Excellent work! Keep at it, you'll go places!!

Thank you so much for your compliments. My cheeks are red now! It has indeed been quite a job, but writing a document like that is also a nice closure of an exciting project. But thanks again!
