Have one of 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. While you can consider using the prusa type of mount found here, this mount provides better visibility of your nozzle but the prusa mounts have a better cooling system.
The base file and it's accompanying parts are a remix of the original mount which can be found here:
With a total of 4 printable pieces, a few other pieces of hardware, 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. This is the base of the mount. It will be responsible for attaching to your hotend plate and will act as a main anchoring base for our cover. Print with supports from the build plate.
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 (hotend) fan and provide a wind tunnel to effectively cool you Creality mk8 hotend. It will also be attached to the base file you downloaded in step 1. No supports are required during this print.
You can download the cover .STL file here.
3. There are two different types of fans that can be used with this mount. A mount to fit a 4010 fan and another for a 5015. We recommend using the 5015 one. Print with supports from the build plate.
You can download the fan duct for a 4010 fan .STL file here.
You can download the fan duct for a 5015 fan .STL file here.
4a. Have a BLtouch? You're going to love this simple & slender mount. Mounts at the side on XCP-001
You can download the bltouch mount .STL file here. No supports are required during this print.
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. No supports are required during this print.
