    Cube3 Hotend Head Drill Guide

    Drilling the print head


    I made a jig for the print head to make sure the hole gets drilled perfectly straight.
    Also, I do not have a drill press, so I made a guide to fit my Dremel 3000.


    If you have a drill press, you just need to print “DP_Fixture_Left.stl” and “DP_Fixture_Right.stl”.
    If you don’t have a drill press and you want to use my guide, you need to print “DG_Fixture_Left.stl” and “DG_Fixture_Right.stl”.





    They go together with screws that are about 3 mm around and about 70 mm long and nuts to match. The little rings in the middle of the nut holes are just supports. You can easily remove them with needle-nose pliers.

    If you have a drill press, you can skip the next part.

    The "DrillGuide_Outer.stl" has a window so you can see what you are doing. The little bars in there are supports. Remove them.




    Put the outer in place before you tighten the screws on the fixtures. This will clamp the outer in place.

    The "DrillGuide_Inner.stl" is threaded on one end to fit my Dremel 3000. You may have to modify that to fit whatever drill you have.





    The "Do_Not_Print.stl" is just for reference on how to put it all together.
