Greetings Everyone!

You all have been extremely helpful in getting my frankencube setup from a cube 2nd gen. I am trying to setup a direct drive for the extruder. I am currently using a J head hot end direct feed (https://www.amazon.com/3D-CAM-Printer-Filament-Extruder/dp/B010MZ8RKW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477161693&sr=8-1&keywords=hotend)

Any tips on existing direct drives extruder mounts on thingiverse that I could print on my other 3D printer?

Thanks for any tips and for all the help you have provided already!  ;D



I dont think there's any direct drive extruders that would fit Cube 2 directly. Cube 2 has it's own kind of X-arm that's probably not meant to adhere to any existing design. So the only option is to pick a extruder design and modify it to fit Cube. Or design one yourself :).

I designed this E3Dv6 mount for Cube 2, but it's bowden: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1886522. Currently it attaches to the metal arm that is attached to the rail. I've been thinking that the metal arm could be removed if something bigger is needed. But current setup works fine and I'm in no need for direct drive extruder, so not going to be changing things any time soon.

For extruder i use this: http://www.thingiverse.com/make:242182. Very reliable so far.
