Added new STL for Thingiverse user COSIK to make the fanduct (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2013199 Anet A6 circular fan duct by Paclanc) fit. See comments for details
-support for x limit switch added
-option for tying hot end cable (so the heater can not fall out)
-a second model with support for mounting the PLA cooling fan
see pictures :-)
for this model with a hot end with cool fin dimensions 25mm x 32mm please see:
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 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.
As for the parts list. It depends a bit on you setup. But I will try to make a list as guidance :-)
6x M3x10mm & nuts
2X M3x20mm & nuts for Fan
the rest of the parts came with the Anet printer
