This is a v1 of the Diamond Nozzle refitted for a delta printer, using my 40mm effector.
there are a couple of reasons for the effector arm connections being so low on the part:
- delta printers tend to like a low center of gravity. putting the arm braces up towards the top would have made the entire effector act abit like a pendulum.
- the arms need a certain amount of space so that you can actually run the m3 screws through it. this was about as close to the bottom as I could get, and still imagie clearance for the 3 hotends assembled on top of it. still, the tolerances are going to be tight for mounting m3 bolts with m3 nuts. you may have to turn to reversing flat heads to go from the inside out.
- looking at the fan positioning, it would interfere with the arms at the outer edges, compromising you ability to maximize your real estate on your print bed. moving them closer to the base hopefully moves the bulk up above the arms and gives enough clearance for the entire head.
this was mounted in such a way that each hot end would feed up towards an arm, so as to make mounting, bowden runs and tie-down's simpler and aligned with each arm.
this hasn't been proven yet with an actual diamond head nozzle, so if anyone print one and assemble it for proofs, please let me know if you do and any adjustments that need to be made.
used sketchup to clean the 1st part and remove the side bracket.
used 123d to merge the 2 parts and cut out the difference using the metal nozzle model.
