I wanted to mount a chines J-hotend to a A6 Anet printer, but for that i had to make a new X wagen.
The dimentions for the cooling fins/parts are: diameter 22,25mm X 26mm.
The Original bearing, fan, extruder and end-switch can be reused. I made this for ABS printing, so there is no place for a cooling fan for PLA users... sorry
i printed this in PET-G. In the STL file 1 is a Cylinder on the place where the hotend wil come to sit. You can break this cylinder out after the print is ready, this cylinder is for support while printing.
