    Just wanted to check a detail before I order, I was planning on fitting a 12v Bowden E3D V6 to my Monoprice Mini Delta V2, there are stl files around for mounts etc but I had reservations that they were either way too complex or relied on printed effector plates.

    What I was planning on doing was taking the existing effector, https://gigdigit.com/effector-mp-mini-delta/ and fitting a 45mm x 3mm aluminium disk with a 6mm central hole and using that as a mounting plate by putting the heat block and nozzle underneath, the disk, running the throat through the hole and then fitting the rest of the hotend above the plate, looking at all the data sheets and checking measurments this should all fit together simply and avoid losing build height.

    My question is, if I do this will I run into any issues I havent foreseen, such as problems with the heatsink and heatbreak as they will both be in contact with the aluminium disk?
