Novatec D711SB front hub convert to thru axle?

I am vaguely thinking of getting a bike that apparently has a bolt thru front axle (SuperSix Disc) and ideally would switch some disc wheels I have on another bike onto it. This existing set has a Novatec D711SB hub with a QR axle so I am wondering if this can somehow be converted into a bolt thru set up? Ta!

    Been googling. Looks like the answer may be “no”. Ah well.

    The answer is no unless it was the 4n1 hubs but getting the right bits s no longer possible. -wheel building and other stuff.

    "No" in general then. Ah well.

    Would it be possible to have the end caps machined to fit the through axle? I had this done on some Hope end caps to fit a through axle as specific end caps weren’t available for that particular hub. Works a treat.
