I doesnt seen one. But actualy i build a new extruder frame, to fit the V6 hotend.

Only problem is, you loose about 30mm printable height.

So .. the hotend is mounted.

BUT

The software want working, if the nozzle height is lower than 115mm (about 85mm with the V6).

Perhabs they can fix this in the software. But somebody told me they have printed on 50mm stages without problems :(

I tried differnt software versions 2.13 / 2.12 / 2.11 .. none worked with a lower level.

I switched to a Recreus design of hot end and had to shorten it due to this same issue.
Next time I plan to add material to the mount bracket for the extruder to the slide saddle to raise the extruder up to regain the lost height.
You might try this option.
