Budaschnozzle to J-Head Adapter
by jcaywood, published
I needed an adapter from a Budaschnozzle to a J-Head type mount for Wired1's "Highly accessible vertXtruder for OB1.4" which is under development still. It doesn't allow for the normal shoe mounting that many Wade type extruders do.
Added a second version for anti-rotation for use with through bolt retainer designs. Left the circular groove version as an alternate.
3/1 Updated the Anti-Rotation version. The screw engagement area diameter on the cylindrical section was was decreased from 2.9mm to 2.75mm which is just enough to get the screws through with a little work and provide stiffer mounting.
This is my first thing and I'm not an exemplary 3D artist in 123D, but I don't have a copy of my favorite program anymore so it's time to learn new things!

Print it, use lots of cooling or delays between layers on the upper parts or it will sag in. I did 40% infill but haven't tested it yet as I'm still building the printer. It's possible that the design may change once I do use it. Hopefully you'll find it usefull for your needs. Suggestions welcome.
Drill the center hole with at least a 3mm bit to clean it up from strings or print size variances, then install.
Support on the groove was difficult to remove, I just slid it up into the vertXtruder body and ran a 3mm drill bit through the screw holes, in reverse, to clear out what I needed.
This will reduce the Z height of the stock OB1.4 printer, I suggest increasing the Z height of the frame a little bit to compensate for it if needed.
