    Didn't even know there was a forum for Cube3 modders

    I posted the picture of the E3D hotend on Facebook hoping to produce some attention for the Cube3 printer. The proprietary nature of the device casts it in a bad light and I felt like offering a full conversion to an open source machine would make it at least a little more popular. Can't really beat what you get for ~$100 these days.

    I'll be releasing the E3D hotend files, along with numerous other files, very soon. The last work I have to do (other than a bit more testing) is relating to endstop placement. I have the concepts worked out, just need to turn them into reality now

    I can't wait to see this in action!! It would be really cool to be able to use off the shelf parts to extend the life of this printer. I actually get really good prints with it now and I worry what I will do when it dies lol. Parts are going to be scarce for it soon I'd imagine.

    Here's a link to the carriage design. More to come in time

    now just look at what you've done. Going to make me convert mine! This look fabulous. Cant wait to see what the final results bring. What type of tweaking would need to be done to the computer part if any?

    Technically it can be used with the default but you'd need to setup a proper resistor to provide the computer the feedback it's looking for. I'm going to be using a RAMPS board with it
