Is this what JBFromOZ calls "a Greg's Wades extruder" and ZemcikO hot end calls "wades/gregs extruder" ?

Is this what RUG/Pennsylvania/State College/Printers/PSU Unit Green calls "Greg's accessible extruder" ?

Apparently based on Wade's Geared Extruder.

The "x-carriage.scad" and "greg-adapter.scad"; or Rusty-Vertical-X; are used to attach an extruder like Greg's hinged extruder to the two parallel rails, one above the other, of the Prusa i3 and other 3D printers that use the Vertical X Axis Standard.

The "x-carriage-lower" and "x-carriage-upper" or the Isaac/X Carriage are used to attach an extruder like Greg's hinged extruder to the two parallel rails, side by side, of the Isaac or Mendel X-axis.
