I've recently bought a Titan Aero to get away from the crappy extruder hot end combo that comes with the DP5. I haven't had any luck finding a mount on thingiverse that fits the x carriage mounting screws and will support the SN04 sensor but I figured I'd ask the kind members here first before I design one. Is any one else using the titan aero or can point me towards a mount?

Your standard prusa i3, anet etc. Rail spacing is used on the dp5, I'm using an x carriage I printed off thingiverse on mine with the regular titan. Guess the only issue you would have is the sensor, the 2 screw sensor is pretty uncommon. I do think it is an option for anet of some kind, might want to check there first. I also combined my x carriage and hot end mount in cad prior to printing, i figured there was no point in having 2 peices there abd it did shorten up the unit some, less plastic and no screws makes it a very tiny bit lighter, but printed faster for me.

Yeah I was hoping to get away with not having to print a new X carriage but its looking like I wont get so lucky. I'll probably whip something up in SolidWorks tomorrow if I have time after work and post it on here.
I had to work long days week and didn't have a chance to get anything done until now. It fits easily and works well but 2 of the mounting holes are slightly off. I'll revise and adjust mount to not waste so much of the X axis later this week. I have to wait 24 hours for thingiverse to let me post but here's the link and pictures:

Chase those holes with a drill bit and you're good. Just leave a washer on the back side, the clamping force will 've more than enough to prevent any movement. I had to do that with my first attempt at a mount swap, worked just fine(until I got bored with the design and changed the whole setup, mounts are like underwear, you get the ladies by changing them often:)
