Based on original design: Ulitimaker Orig - Modular Printhead (Merlin, UBIS) by foehnsturm


Yet another modular mount based on foehnstrums modular printhead(https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ulitimaker-orig-modular-printhead-merlin-ubis). The main part that connects to the two rods is slightly modified (includes 3 holes for mounting the thermocouple sensor board and the fan mount). This model differs from Juan Pedrazas(https://www.youmagine.com/designs/foehnsturms-modular-printhead-e3dv6-adapter) by having a larger Z-clearance and includes a mount for a BL touch/3dTouch auto bed leveling sensor. I used Onshape to design the model and it can be viewed
here:(https://cad.onshape.com/documents/104f38f231c8872d87d22f83/w/b34b3b45ba42e8bcd2434894/e/fff98660bd198ffe0db77dac). The fan mount uses the fans from Rais e3d mount (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/e3d-v6-hot-end-mount)

Important! You will need a piece of tube with a inner diameter large enough to contain the PTFE tube and a outer diameter of max. 12.5 mm if you ever want to remove the PTFE tubing (filament jamming).

Materials and methods

Please use a filament with a high glass transition temperature (not PLA). I used Colorfabb XT. I had to wrap the 3dtouch sensor in Ceramic Fiber Tape to protect it from the heat.
