V1.0 - Initial release

This version should work. I got a nearly perfect fit with Colorfabb XT.
More documentation and pictures coming! (Work in progress)

Note that I haven't finished testing yet. I know the mount gives a good fit, but haven't actually used it for printing yet.

My mount uses the fanduct from Nick Foley's design:
Please download it separately.


I found Nick's design very difficult to print, and the new, large pneumatic couplings don't fit right.
My version is a completely remodeled printhead following Nick's design in the basics, but with some tweaks that make it easier to print.


Any suggestions, complaints, remarks, wishes etc. are welcome!

To do:
- Add documentation (coming soon!)
- Add a mount for the thermocouple amp board (no change on main parts!)
- Improve cable management for heater element and temperature sensor (no change on main parts!)

Materials and methods

- E3Dv5 printhead (3mm Bowden type)
- Self-tapping plastic screws (details coming soon)
