For those who may not be familiar with the Hero Me…
Here is a link to the latest install and review of the Hero Me Gen7 by TeachingTech! (Starts at the 4 minute mark). https://www.youtube.com/embed/UAg3KpmbFLE?start=239
The Hero Me is a modular printhead platform for 3D printers with excellent part cooling and the most compatibility across 3D printers, hot-ends, extruders, ABLs, and other components.
The Hero Me Gen7 is all about personal preference & performance cooling. If you have been upgrading your 3D printer, you've made choices about what is important to you. Your choices are likely to be different from other makers. When choosing a hot-end, extruder, and ABL combo (not to mention fans, accelerometers, and other printhead components), where are you going to find a printhead platform that will accommodate all your selected components (which could be a rare combo) for your specific 3D printer AND provides part cooling that gives you great print results. This is what the Hero Me Gen7 is all about!
Think of the Hero Me platform as Lego blocks for printheads, there is a single mounting part for each component (hot-end, extruder, fans, ABLs, etc.) that stack and mount to the core Her Me Base. Component-specific mounting parts can be interchanged for another of the same type. So, should you change your component selection(s) in the future, you do not have to start over, you simply replace the single STL mount that is matched to the new component. There is no need to yet again go looking for a new set of mounting hardware that was not likely to have been designed to work with each other in the first place.
So to give you choices and fulfill your personal preferences in 3D printing, the Hero Me Gen7.4 now supports over 115 3D Printer models (plus clones), 47 Hotends, 37 Extruders (over 45 mount options), 20 ABL Sensors (34 mount options), 35 Part Cooling Duct options, 12 Cable Management options, 14 ADXL345 mounts, and 4 LED bar mounts (among many other options).
If you know your 3D printer model, hotend, fans, and optionally an extruder, ABL sensor, ADXL345 accelerometer (for Klipper), and any other options for your printhead assembly, you can scan through the Hero Me Gen7 Release 4 folder, or use the Thangs Advanced Search. Be sure to set the creator filter to: ‘MediaMan3D’ then search for ‘HMG7’ which should bring up all the STLs. You can refine your search from there by component, brand, etc.
If you find that you have a 3D printer model or component that is not yet supported, send me information and preferably a STEP or STL (or link) if you know of one for the X carriage of that printer or the component and I will create a mount for it. Send to: MediaMan3D@gmail.com
The Hero Me Gen7.4 folder of STLs on Thangs is organized into sub-folders by component category, with sub—sub-folders for type and brand with well-defined filenames to make it easy to find what you need.
But If you want documentation to help you select and assemble the Hero Me Gen7 for your specific 3D printer, you can get a membership plan here on Thangs.
By becoming a member you will get a detailed 56-page parts selection and illustrated assembly guide along with assembly videos, private Discord server access (with over 2,000 Hero Me users), technical support, and much more, You also get exclusive access to new STL releases 30 days before being posted to Thangs, and other STL libraries.
