So, please, could you (or anybody else) explain me that thing: when ill get Prometheus, ill need only the thing like that http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:237847 for mounting? What does mean the next sentence on indiegogo page:and if you select a Groove Mount Plate as an add-on it will ship with your Prometheus (1.75mm or 3mm) perk.
I havent seen any add-ons anywhere or i dont need it at all?
Thank you for your work again, the pictures are great
Sorry about that, I actually removed the laser cut groove mount plate that I was going to offer as an add on. Not many people needed it so I just removed it. If you want I can put it up there, but you could just as easily print your own for free! So you don't need to buy the laser cut plate from me.
As for the mounting, it really depends on your printer. THe basic groove mount principal is that a plastic plate can be printed to fit the groove in the top of the hot end heat sink (see pictures on the campaign page) and secure the hot end during operation. Since you are using a Rostock Max V2 you need to see how you can replace your current hot end with my hot end. That link you included in your post is actually designed to fit the E3D which has different groove mount dimensions than Prometheus. If that design could be modified to fit a 4.6mm groove then it should work perfectly. Unfortunately I don't have a Rostock V2 (yet!) so I can't model this myself.
BTW, I think McSlappy is going to model a mounting fixture for Prometheus soon so stay tuned! Don't worry, you are not the only person who needs to mount Prometheus to their Rostock Max V2, so this problem will likely be solved very soon before I even start shipping
