Mounting toolheads

Note: Each toolhead has the same mounting system.

  • Find the bottom hooks placed on the back of the toolhead,

  • While placing the toolhead on the X carriage, first make sure the hooks are in their designated grooves on the back of the mounting base,

  • Next, place the mounting screw in the front groove and holding it from behind push it forward,

  • Tighten the mounting screw while pushing the toolhead forward,

Note: Tightening the mounting screw without pushing the toolhead to the front might cause the connection between the toolhead and X carriage to be loose. This might cause further errors in calibrations and printing processes.

Note: Each time after changing the toolhead it is better to check if the connection is correct. Lift the back of the toolhead and check if the rear hooks are not moving up and down, if yes loose the front mounting screw and once again push and hold the toolhead forward and tighten the mounting screw.


Next steps depend on which toolhead will be used:
