The Prometheus System - Intuitive Multi-Filament 3D Printing

Post by jjlink » Mon Dec 26, 2016 4:38 pm

Anyone else going to try using the Prometheus System on a Felix 3.0 printer? I am expecting the main challenge will be designing a mount for it.

In case you don't know what it is here is the info:

I just got my Prometheus System; so now I need to figure out how to mount the Prometheus V2 Hot End.

I'm very curious for your mounting solution. I've considered getting the Prometheus as well, shipping costs are very steep though. Anyway, please let us know what results you achieve. It looks like a nice "upgrade" or "mod"!

I am thinking I might be able to use this thing to mount the Prometheus v2 hot end:

However I don't know what is needed to fix the hot end in place.

I came up with this mount for the Prometheus System with the v2 hot-end.

I still have to finish assembling the rest of the Prometheus System.
