Storage Box For V2 Hot Ends

After looking at the process to swap nozzles I decided it was simpler to get a few extra hot end assemblies and set each one up with a different nozzle size. Now it just takes a minute to swap to a new nozzle.

Of course now I needed something to store the unused hot end assemblies in, so I created this storage box using openSCAD. You can print a box for 1,2,3,4, or however many extra hot ends you have.

But will not fit for the Pro2 Hot Ends, right?

Only if they are exactly the same size/shape as the V2 hot ends.

I do not think so ...

Neat idea and +1 for using OpenSCAD :)

The pro2 is slightly smaller in the heatsink and upper mounting boss, but the heater block is the same.
Point being, I think it would fit or be relatively easy to adjust the size- just have "extra" room at the top.

It shouldn't be too hard to adjust the size of the various features since this is done in OpenSCAD.
I'll take a look at it this weekend if I have some time.

Is there a CAD model for the new hotends ?
Has anybody taken measurements ?
