Hi, Dan,

the email has arrived, thank you very much, super support.

One of the main reasons for breaking the hotend mount is probably that the hotend mounting plate is being thicker than the passive cooler cut.

Caliper measurements showed approx. 5.8mm for the recess cut in the passive cooler, while the mounting plate has a height of 6mm.

*********************************************

The “fan plate” also broke (see red marked crosses in picture below) because the hotend mounting plate’s mounting noses have too little tolerance and therefore too much tension on the fan plate.

Suggestion: Change the construction of the corners slightly and give them more “air” – as shown highly exaggerated in green:
