Stage 4 - 101pyro (unofficial biography)

Bowden setup with existing extuder

If you only want to replace the hotend and continue using the existing extruder without changing the Gcode, Per Knutas had successfully converted the direct extruder to bowden type.

Below is my mod to his design, you can use the existing heaksink to fix the position of the Bowden tube.

Handmade E3D carrier

If you really want to hand made the E3D-v6 carrier, think again if you can find somebody or company to print the carrier for you. It will be the best solution.

OK. Buy the E3D-v6 with all the below accessories

1 x Heatsink shroud with 12V High Speed Fan
1 x Metal J-Head hotend 1.75mm / 0.4mm nozzle / 12V 40W Heater / NTC3950 Thermistor
1 x One meter long bowden PTFE/teflon tubing 4mm OD 2mm ID
1 x Hotend Throat

1 x E3D v6 Circular Aluminum Mount
2 x M3/M4 screw
2 x M3/M4 nut
You need to cut the aluminium brick so that it can sit on the heat isolator without touching the plastic extruder carrier. The thickness of the brick also need reduced to 10mm to enable the perfect contact between the nozzle and the hotend throat even the isolator is inserted between them.

No assemble instruction of the handmade hotend will be provided as a picture is worth a thousand words. Please leave me message if your really need help.
