This is a dummy model of the E3D v4 Hot End (made for 1.75mm filament) modeled in OpenSCAD and intended for use in your projects. It should also be a workable stand-in for the E3D v5 as well.

This is not for printing! I created this to ensure a good fit in my own designs, and I'm uploading it so others can do the same.

As is noted in the comments of the .scad file - The heat break is modeled based on measurements of my own E3D hot ends. The measurements vary slightly from what is given on the reference sheets from their website. The heater element and nozzle are modeled based only on the reference sheets from the E3D website.

Both a .scad and .stl file are available, but only the .scad file includes that lovely color.
