    Printed all the parts and assembled this. It clips in fine. But the right side of the clamp pops out at the slightest touch.
    I tried the hair dryer and bend it out. But it seems like the clamp is to far to the left or the right side tip is just not holding and slips off easily.

    thoughts or suggestions?

    I am considering putting a magnet in the Mountplate part on the right side to see if that helps.

    I'm not sure why you are having this problem. Are you using PLA? I printed several of these in PLA and they are still working fine.

    Putting a magnet on the right side won't help. There is nothing there for it to stick to. There are 2 electromagnets on the top and bottom of the printer, centered over the drive gear. That is the only good place to put magnets. See Zugok's Hubcap for details.

    Yes printed in PLA. To me seems like the right hand side does not grip around the lip on the inside. If stiffer or wider arrow head (not sure of the names) it would hold better. Just doesn't seem like it wants to grab. The left side grabs very tight and works well. (i did try it disassembled and same thing happened.)

    I did look at the Hub print. Not a fan of tapping the gear/mount plate. Like your design better.
    was thinking of adding material to the stl file. on that arrow head or putting a angle on it like the hub has. (if you don't mind me tinkering with the file that is)

    any other thoughts?

    Not at all. If you can improve the design somehow, go for it.

    I started the whole extruder hub concept and I'm glad to see other people jumping in and improving or creating their own version of it. If you have any other ideas, like better ways to do the supports, etc. please do so.

    I will do my best. I can do CAD. But this modeling is newer to me.

    Just finished printing. Seems blue is a popular color.
