Hi dmandn,

I received today my nimble. It's version 2.0 and it won't fit your design.

Hi, thanks for the design.
I printed your design and i noticed the end stop switch cannot be mounted because the 'slot' is to narrow. It is like 3.5 mm. The switch is 6.4 mm wide.

Ok, had not noticed this for I imported the original file and shaved it in places, then added mount points for the DC42. I have now made the microswitch slots 6.77mm. This should allow for easier fitment.

Had a few issues with dimensions on some of the stl imports, unsure why these files don't import correctly.

Thanks, I will print it.

Most of the parts for my BLV have arrived, the mosquito clone I am waiting on has not yet arrived.
...looking for the cheapest way to get a genuine mosquito hotend in Perth (with delivery to Perth).

I do plan to test part cooling on this once I have my parts to test fit with. I will look into mounts for the z probes, including the bltouch once I have the rest of the printer so I can check clearances.
Why wait? I want to make the parts such that fewer parts require changing.

I was just thinking about designing one of these since I am contemplating going to the mosquito hot end but now I guess I don't have to. The only other challenge I see with this is that I would also want to be able to mount a BLTouch as well. Today I'm using my Nimble with an Orion Piezo for bed leveling but with the mosquito, I suspect I'd have to go back to a BLTouch. Any chance of adding a BLTouch mount to this? One other thought--do you have any ideas for a part cooling setup for use with this?

Is it possible for me to see this setup????

Yes, I am afraid this has been a slow process due to broken parts and missing parts for both old and new printers. I believe the part cooling fan mount is not currently right and will collide with the nimble. Please bare with me, currently sorting issue with Fusion 360 and Windows Insider previews....

BLTouch Mount added :)
