Also see here for a small clip of the system in action:

Hey Indie, I have created a 30mm fan version of your J-head holder! If I upload it, would you like me to tag it as 'based upon' your design? I haven't used any of your files, just re-created the looks and how it works kinda.
I have been designing a lot of hotend holder solutions, but the key into making a printable one was to use the clamp that holds the J-head to first mount the J-head and then conceal it because the clamp is on the same side of the holder as the X-carriage is.
Couldn't create the extruder completely, because I am using a different kind of hobbed bolt, it's the MK8 I'm using and this causes the idler bearing to not reach in deep enough to clamp the filament against the hobbed gear.
You're right, I shouldn't try to fix an effect, but fix the cause ;)
I'll edit is to accommodate the bearings I have. Haha, I can't believe I was thinking this backwards and uninventive!
