Just thought Id start a log on this project for the hell of it.
(As some of you guys know) Im making a custom mount for my ender 5 to support the dragon hotend, modified BMG direct drive extruder and ABL.

This is V2.

Changes from V1:

- Changed the way the hotend is installed by splitting the BMG in 3 parts.
- Shortened the path from the BMG drive gears to the Hotend.
- Opened up the hotend area for more air flow.
- Brought the cold end fan 23mm closer.
- Added a 40x40x28mm delta fan for the cold end.
- Attempting to redirect air intake of the cold end fan to grab cooler air a bit further from the heated bed.
- Created an S shaped duct for the part fan in an attempt to open the hotend area even more.
- Regained X build volume to stock values.

Dusted off my renderer yesterday and made a little animation. Im gonna make a break down animation soon.

Little sneak peak of my up coming assembly animation. Ive been so wrapped up in modeling and printing that I forgot how much fun rendering photo real (ish) pics are!

yeah, it seems like a good candidate for the e5/e5+ since it's already a cube form factor. :) If you want me to prototype anything on an e5+ i'm game :)
