Some progress... spool-holder and cold-end mounted

Today i once again find myself to be human, forgot to order some parts. Next time triple check. I am missing 2 pulleys and a motor plate but no problem order them first thing tomorrow.

As for now i cant build my Z, so i made the "universal" spool holder and fitted my extruder (cold-end) next up putting the hot-end together (E3D V6) and mounting it to the printer. This is going to be a temporary solutions but ill have to print the replacement parts.








could not resit to add a "drawing" ;-)
