Here is a list of some of the adapters for the Nimble. This list is not complete, as the list is growing daily at the moment, so check back frequently. We will also post each adapter on our Facebook page.
Most of the adapters will be available via our Thingiverse page. To avoid the issue that if you need an adapter to print and therefore can't print an adapter, we also make most adapters available in our Shapeways shop, so you can order it online.
If the adapter you need is not there, have a look at the list of adapters we are working. If the adapter you need is not there, add an adapter request here. You can also watch the progress of the different adapters as they are developed here.

|Basic adapter to ensure concentricity of the Nimble with the hot end.||Ready||Ready|
|Adapter to fit a Nimble on the standard Kossel type effector. Simple bolt on the adapter and done.||Ready||Soon|
|Big Box can handle 2 Nimbles. The plate is so large so we can use the existing mounting holes.|
Big Box IDEX with a Nimble on each side. This is great work by Greg himself and looks perfect.
|Ready||Not our design, so will ask permission to put it up.|
|Cetus adapter. The unit replaces the stepper, but still offers space for the cable PCB.||Ready||Ready|
This adapter fits the following x-carriage.
The adapter also have mounting points for the following sensors:
So all in all, this is one very flexible adapter.
|Geeetech i3 clone adapter.||Ready|
|Ultimaker 2 adapter, this adapter replaces the bottom half of the Nimble||W.I.P|
For any Kossel type delta.
This is a simple re-work of Huntley's excellent work on the Kossel type effectors, including a led ring and fan holders.
|For a Kossel.
This is a combination of all the work done by LeadingLights, Moriquendi ,DjDemonD and Huntley and uses the Nimble to make the whole unit direct drive.
The system is designed to hold a peizoelectric sensor squeezed between the hot end top and the Mount base. You will need some piezo transducers: Murata 7BB-27-4 As 27mm like these.
Please read the description on DjDemonD's page for mounting instructions and how to prep the sensor.
Also, check out Huntley's page as it describes the effector in a lot more detail.
This design is designed for the E3D V6 hot end. The J-Head will probably fit, but is not tested. Overall, the design is checked and the stl files are error free. But it is work in progress.
The solution for the Nimble is a little delayed.
For those who cannot wait for the Nimble to test this out, use the other mount base.
|Bracket for a DBot. This is a simple little bracket to mount an E3D V6 and attach a Nimble on top.||Ready||Ready|
