Light and sturdy carriage for ANET A8 converted to bowden E3D extruder.
You can select of variety clamps with fan mount and round 8mm,12mm, 17mm cubic inductive sensors or without a sensor or just a bare clamp for setups with fan(s) attached to E3D hot end directly. It looks awesome if printed of a temperature dependent color changing filament.
check out my other stuff for ANET A8 and enjoy!.
It uses original setup - bolts and nuts to attach X- belt, but positioned slightly higher to make the belt run linearly. It has 6 attachment points for zip ties. The clamp is attached with two M3 bolts and M3 nuts fitted in carriage slots for tight fit.
clamps - print upside down, 50-100% infill 1,2mm walls, no supports
carriage - 50% infill, 1.2mm walls no supports
nozzle - print solid, with supports touching buildplate only
material - preferably ABS, but PLA works fine for carriage too for open setup.

clamp Bl touch - !prototype! please test and comment
clamps v6h and v6j - prototype for "ANET" blue cubic Z sensor
fan nozzle 5h - optimized high flow nozzle
clamps v6e and v6f - for 17x17mm cubic sender like tronxy or prefered TL-Q5MC1(works great at 5V ~4mm sensing distance). v6e is attached by two M3x25mm bolts, v6f is fixed by a zip tie. calibration X +30mm (right) of the nozzle.
clamp v6d - !prototype! for 12mm inductive sensor, calibration X +30mm (right) of the nozzle
clamp v5b no fan - optimized bare hot end without a bracket for a fan
nozzle v5 - high flow nozzle
clamp v5 - optimized clamp for 8mm inductive sensor, calibration X +30mm (right) of the nozzle
