    Convert your Anet A8 into multiple different tools

    So I am new to this forum, but not new to the Anet A8 printer. I wanted to share a mod that I did to my printer that I think will be useful to others. It is my quick change tool carriage assembly mod. This mod converts your Anet A8 printer into a versatile multi tool device. This may also work on the Prusa i3 printers as well as I think they use the same type of X carriage assembly. The tools that I currently have designed for it are a bowden J-head for 3D printing, a pen plotter attachment to make your 3D printer draw, and a laser engraver tool. The tools can be changed very quickly as they are attached to the carriage with plates that have neodymium magnets in them. Simply unplug the harness connector and pull the tool off. Snap the new tool on and plug in it's harness connector (if it has one). The OpenSCAD and .stl files for the mod are available on thingiverse.
