Slightly warped but usable. Doesn't completely solve grinding issue but way better than the stock feeder

Just wanted to thank you for this version! I know IRobertI's system seems highly favorited, but having the back plate holding the extruder motor makes yours a design on its own. Very tough and sturdy. To those who print this just make sure to print the arm at the highest infill you can, I did 100%.

Love it, I had a few hot end issues after installing this feeder system and it made that troubleshooting a breeze. Excellent design!
