what extruder fan shroud are you using with this ?

I just made a crude BL Touch mount for this carriage: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3917564
Option 2 is working beautifully on my AM8 with SKR1.3!!

BL Touch mount for Anet A8/AM8/Prusa i3 E3D v6 Carriage

Hi! What is the spacing between the rods (center to center)? Any chance to get the STEP files for this? I would like to make a version with BLTouch mount and maybe tune some dimensions to fit my printer. Thank you and keep up the great work.

Hi! I designed the carriage to fit both 45 & 46mm rods distance. Sorry I don't have the STEP file. Only .skp (SketchUp) file.

It says PLA. Is that right? If so how is it holding up to the heat?

Yes. you heard it right. I don't have any issue for now. I only print with PLA. So at 200c it holding up just fine.

Is this zero offset from stock or do I need to adjust the x/y on a computer?

Love this design and your other designs too.
Made one :)
Thank you for this.

I made a quick 18mm probe holder here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3797292
It's ugly but it works.

I've been searching left and right for a suitable 3D Touch mount to use with this model, however, since the distance to the nozzle is different than the original direct drive, none of them work...
I now you're only doing manual leveling, but I was wondering if anyone else would have found a good mount to go along with this design.

I'm going to make one of these to go along with my AM8 conversion.
One question though... Is there a good 3D Touch mount for this carriage?


As far as I know, there's none.Maybe someday someone will make it. I only do manual bed leveling. Thanks!

No worries, I'll figure it out. Thanks anyway!
