Have one our KAY3D's CoreXY kit, then you'll probably have one of our hotend plates.
Most notably known as part number XCP-001 in Mk2 kits, this plate is known to have plenty of holes for you to design and mount possibly everything you can ever dream of.
But what if don't want to design and want something ready to print? Or you're looking for a mount that would fit your stock Creality hotend, 4010 hotend fan, your X limit switch, a 5015 fan, your 18mm sensor or even your bltouch?
Then, you might want to consider using this mount.
The base file and it's accompanying parts are a remix of the original mount which can be found here:
Comes as a default mount on the KAY3D Ender 5 plus conversion kit (option with 3D printable mount included), this mount will do just that.
With a total of 4 printable pieces, a few other pieces of M3 bolts, 2 square nuts, you can have this mount created for yourself.
Please use sufficient layers and and infill for the mount to work properly. We recommend printing in PETG as the mount gets pretty close to the heated bed where PLA will melt. Use the visual guides below to get a reference point on how your .STL should be orientated in your slicer.
We recommend at least 4 perimeters, 20% infill, 4 layers top & bottom. You will also need to enable supports called touching build plate. Need a slicer profile?

1) 11 x M3 Heated Thread Inserts
2) 2 x M3 Nuts
3) 5 x M3x8 Allen Hex Bolts
4) 4x M3x12 Allen Hex Bolts
5) 4x M3x20 Allen Hex Bolts
6) 2x M3x25 Allen Hex Bolts

1. This is the base of the mount. It will be responsible for holding your hotend, 4010 fan in place and will act as a main anchoring base for our cover.
You can download the base .STL file here.
2. This is the cover of the mount. It will be responsible for completing your mount to secure the 4010 fan and provide a wind tunnel to effectively cool you Creality mk8 hotend.
You can download the cover .STL file here.
3. With a similar design to the Prusa, the hotend fan duct is mounted near the hotend at the front. This design effectively helps to create a barrier from frontal wind drafts to the heated block.
You can download the fan duct .STL file here.
4a. Have a BLtouch? You're going to love this simple & slender mount. Mounts at the side of the mount and partially hidden from the front of the printer. This mount gives the word stealth a completely different meaning.
You can download the bltouch mount .STL file here.
4b. Or perhaps you have an 18mm capacitive sensor? You're going to love this equally simple & slender mount. Mounts at the side of the mount for a tight & secure fit.
You can download the 18mm sensor .STL file here.
