    Hey,
    I just bought the v6 Bowden and I'm looking for a good effector for my Mini Kossel. Thingiverse showed a few good versions, but I'm unsure if the ones for the v5 still fit. Also, I'd like to reuse my default auto probe and install another 40mm fan for PLA printing. Additionally, since the v6 looks rather heavy, having the rods connect around the center of mass sounds reasonable.
    Did I miss something?
    Thanks!

    It is very difficult to fit a probe with the v5 or v6 because of the fan requirements. A single PLA cooling fan unducted is not optimum as prints can be unevenly cooled. My experience is that good results are obtainable without the probe if the bed is levelled properly. 3 x 40mm fans take a lot of room around the effector limiting the build space if one wants to avoid them hitting the belts. I settled for 3 x 25mm fans which allowed the full build space with the kit from Think3DPrint3.
    For stability of calibration I modified the self tapping effector to use nut traps.

    Hi Zaubara,
    I have made an effector for V6 with z-probe, do you want the file? Step or stl?
    Is this still relevant or do you have a solution?

    Would it be possible to post the stl file?
    A lot of us users could use it. TIA!
