J-Head mount for the TAZ

Post by geneb » Fri Dec 05, 2014 8:29 am

After some thrashing about, I finally got this done.

It's been tested to fit the Aluhotend and the hotends.com J-Head.

Unfortunately, it's fundamentally useless. :(

Because of how the Z end-stop switch & adjustment screw are positioned, the best I can do is 1/2" short of the bed surface with an Aluhotend. :(

The GOOD news is that the extruder feeds 1.75mm nicely!

Hmm. I think the Hexagon is shorter as well, think this mount could be modified?

I had the same problem on my AO-101 on Monday! :shock: The x axis assembly bottomed out against couplers before the j-head hit. I can't mount it to the bottom of the the current carriage and my existing hotend melted so I have to find someone to print me a new x-axis carriage.

Ahh, ok. Nah, that wouldn't solve the issue.

If I find the time over my vacation, I may spin a new rev of the mount that includes a filament guide tunnel and an extended face that dips below the X car on the TAZ. I've got to find a round tuit and fuel for the Givvadammatron first. :)
