Mix G1 Extruder - JHead
by darkdrgn2k, published
Sorry everyone, for some reason my model was inverter. I uploaded a new one (Extruder v4-2.stl) that should be corrected
SO i bought a jhead as an upgrade to my MIX G1 printer but found i could not get it installed.
I used the above mods on mine and its printing wonderfully!
This is the modification to the MIX g1 extruder to accomidate the jhead. (use with my modified X Cartridge)
Opening for the hotend enlarged to fit the JHEAD hotend
Holes added to allow 2 screws to hold the JHEAD hotend in Place
Body made bigger because my hobbed bolt was missing the filament because it was going to far.
Depth made a bit smaller to allow the same screws to work (due to the elnarged back)
Added a mounting hole for Exaust Fan (next project)
So you need a modified X Cartridge that creates a bigger opening to the J-HEAD.
If you already have a MIX G1, the screws you used to join the two parts together will work tine (I used the same hardware).
Just line up the holes from the X Cartridge and the Extruder piece here. Screw them together. (you do not need these to hold the hot end in place if your using a J-HEAD)
The J-HEAD simply fits into the whole. Use two screws into the screw holes at the front middle of the extruder to keep the head in place (they dig in slightly into the JHEAD keeping it snug)
