For use with Prusa i3 Rework X-Carriage.
The inspiration came from ch1t0’s i3 extruder design.

I initially began designing this extruder to work with the E3D Hotend because of the sloppy fit on the original version but the one thing I really wanted, was to install 60mm cooling fans.

In addition I design a E3D 40mm shroud that works with v4, v5., plus a Dual 50mm Cooling fan holder and a 60mm Cooling Fan Holder. 2 different clamps, one is just plain and other one has extension for addons you want to put on.

Fan Cover used: i3 40mm Fan Cover and Open Hardware 60mm Fan Cover.

Other parts I used – RichRap’s Guidler with Lever and schlem’s Skulltruder Gears.

Funny note: When I started the 60mm fans (I know, OVERKILL) it sounded like a jet engine and for a split second I thought my printer was going to start hovering above my desk. 🙂

Update: Feb 8, 2015
Added v6 version for 3mm filament and also a v6 40mm Fan Shroud.


It’s pretty straight forward but if you need instructions.

Note: If you decide to use the modified version, you’ll need to re-adjust the position of your Y-Axis endstop. Z-Axis endstop will also need to be adjusted on both versions.
