    This is my version of Kossel Mini effector for E3D hotends.
    It has a hotend cooler mount and a print cooler mount.
    You just need to print and fit your hotend.

    Soon I will have a version with ZProbe.

    This is a really neat mount, I actually designed something very similar for this for an experimental delta-bot Sanjay and I were building. Your's is much more nicely designed. Ours actually had the hot-end above the end effector to gain a little extra z-height.

    What sort of Z-Probe implementation are you going to include?

    Hi Josh,

    I tried the hotend above the effector, but the coolers mounting (print and hotend) hit the arms in some position, so I came up with this version. I've got about 255mm height.. I guess it is enough for such small printer ;-)

    The ZProbe I'm planning will be attached to the effector by magnets. The effector grabs the probe, measure and then put it back in place. The procedure will take no more then 10 seconds...

    Cheers.

    Alex.

    That sounds cool - is the plan to have some kind of latching arrangement so you "clip" the probe away somewhere on the bed? I suppose you could push it down into a holder, and then slide away in X or Y..

    Yes, that is the idea: a latch to hold the probe.. but not "on the bed", it will be in the top position and outside the print cylinder.
    I hope I come up with a design next week...

    Cheers.

    I have the parts to build a mini Kossel, it looks like your effector will be what I will use.
    I would also like to see a picture of the final product. No hurry, yesterday will be fine. (just kidding)
