    Hey fellow robotrons,

    i have had my R1 for many years now, its a beast, truly a love hate relationship with it.

    I am looking to do some upgrading and im hoping that you peeps can help me out. now its been a long while since i have been on here, and i cant seem to locate the parts that i need. perhaps the community can point me into the right direction.

    i have been successfully using the e3dv6 with the volcano for a couple years how ever i plan on using my printer a lot more. so what i would like to do is upgrade my carriage so that i can easily swap between the v6 and the volcano and any other end that i could ever want.

    i also want to remove my stepper off my carriage and mount it to the top of the enclosure. and include that quick release filament holder.

    i cant seem to find the specific parts on thingiverse that i would need.

    Has any one done this that could lend me a hand?

    I think @Mike Kelly had a thingiverse page for his Bowden setup he used.

    Is @Mike Kelly still active on these forums?

    him and i talked about doing something like this a couple years ago, i how ever never got around to it.

    i just realized that my hot end has come somewhat loose along my x axis which explains why i am getting shifting and ribbing.

    im just looking at getting all the parts that i need now and than do a big tear down.

    Have not seen Mike in a while but he may still drop in occasionally.

    Mike has been pretty swamped with the new job but he stops by from time to time, but rarely posts anything.

    Like Geof mentioned I stop by when I can. Skype is the best way to reach me or google chat.
