Does this happen to match offset of the 2018 / 2019 dual extruder? (It looks closer together than the stock ANet extruder mounts) I'm asking to know if I need to update offsets or if I can use the original X-Offset in the stock firmware. Thanks :D

Hi there,
Not sure what the 2018/2019 dual extruder offsets are. I posted what the offsets are for this setup, though the y offset should actually be 0.

(update)

Thank you, Dave!

For those that should see this Thing in the future, the offset DOES match the 2018/2019 Anet M8 original dual extruder positions.
With no changes to firmware or slicer software, I successfully printed and used this dual bowden mount to print this 2-color 20mm Cube.

(To enable dual extruders in Cura, I had to add a "Custom FFF Printer")
I chose to mount the holder directly to the bearing mounts.
I modified it only slightly to allow for a couple of screws to pass through to attach the X belt.
(using clone E3D-V6 and mounted the extruder motors on a hastily made mount on top of the printer)
(extruder 1 is on the left. extruder 2 is on right)

Thank you, again
