    Just thinking about how to best install the IR sensor on the Bowden IDEX. Since Mounting points were left off would a bracket attached to the fan be okay, or would the vibration from the fan cause problems?

    I have remixed the x-carriage-left-he to include mounts for the IR carrier opposite the fan mounts. It fits the extended IR carrier for Chase's dual direct titan carriage and there is some adjustment so others may fit as well. Should be adaptable for the bltouch with a bit of tweaking. I looked at modifying the fan duct but it seemed easier to modify the carriage.

    You need to swing the heatsink fan to the side to fit. Onshape design - you may need to register a free account to modify.
