    Hi,

    actually the tool plates can only be ordered with the complete v6 package.

    If I already have enough hot ends, how to get some tool plates with the ramps?
    Only with this it would be possible to build up more tools.

    We sell tool plates seperately to the tools and will be making them available more widely once we have cleared the pre-order queue. We expect this to be sometime in December.

    It is worth noting that we use threaded heatsinks (https://e3d-online.com/v6-threaded-heatsink) for the tools and not grovemount.

    Yes I am in the queue because I want to order the tool changer and adapt it to my printer. But it is useless if I can not have the tool plates to mount any tool

    Will there be special tool plates for the Hermes or will Hermes fit the existing ones?

    There will be a new tool plate and dock for the Hermes.

    Awesome, can't wait! I just wish the Hermes would have been ready for the TC release, would have saved me some money then, but that way I now have a lot of leftover E3D parts to upgrade other printers with.
