    While I could probably machine my own TC heads and docks from the design files on github, I seem to recall reading somewhere that they would eventually be available for sale separately.
    Any idea when this will be happening? I’m building my own motion system and would love to buy at least one original TC head.

    Likely after all the Toolchanger/Motion System preorders are shipped.

    Exactly that. After we have cleared, or caught up with, the pre-order queue we will make tools and some other parts available separately and without having to have special access to order them.

    Techchild.com was showing their own direct drive tool heads at MRRF last March. Roy used a very small motor for the feed right on the tool heads of his taller and larger ToolChanger which I think used the e3d parts. Is it ready from primetime? Beats me.
