Want to switch your Anet A8 direct drive to bowden system but you are in a tight budget?
I present to you, Anet A8 Bowden All Stock (A8BAS). The hotend are all in their stock location. No need to adjust X, Y & Z position after applying this mod. Plug & play. The only thing that I bought on this upgrade is the bowden tube. Isn't that cheap enough?

I will not held responsible if this mod fails on you. Use at your own risk.
I only have PLA in hands and have not print using ABS/PETG yet. You may want to print this mod in ABS/PETG for more durability OR if you are using PLA, print with high infill percentage.
