I have modified this to be printable without needing to drill the mounting holes/hobbed hole/idler hole.
Included parcan version.
The new individual files are modified slightly, in that they require the 'bridged' holes to be drilled out, this gives a much nicer finish, (there are only 2 layers @ 0.25mm layer height) and results in a smoother face for the bearing. I find an 8.5mm drill bit works great for the hobbed bolt hole.
The support tears away, as there is a gap of 1 layer between the support and the part. A pair of pliers removes these in one piece.
Also, the holes have been widened slightly, to reduce how much drilling is required.
Updated parcan and j-head mirrored versions.
Uploaded Huxley Bowden mount and tounge, and 1/8" BSP threaded mount.
Uploaded a SLDPRT file of the j-head, made from scratch, using the original STL dimensions.

UPDATE 16/10/2014 - lowered the j-head mounting holes down, to match the dimensions on the j=head wiki.


Print at .25mm or .2mm layer height.
Remove support with a pair of pliers.

Hi, Have tried to open the solidworks file with 2012, cant open it! could you check that the file is good?

Hey, the SLDPRT file is a 2013 file, and unfortunately, SW files aren't backwards compatible.

Could you please upload the reverse version?

Uploaded. :) - I just mirrored the STL, and haven't been able to test, but it should be ok.

looks great, but maybe a little more support for the idler? like http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18619http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

please upload version with idler and gears sepparate.

This looks good. What's the difference between jhead and parcan?

Jhead is 16mm mounting hole, and parcan is 15mm.
I've found that by missing a layer of support, it breaks away easily (and in one piece), and the effect on the layer above is minimal. (best solution may be to reduce extrusion on the first layer of the object (possibly have the same effect?) however, that's difficult/impossible to do pre-slicing)

I really like this support structure better than having to tear out bridges. Very nice.
