NEW Bowden extruder for Felix 3.0

Post by Saamec »

Bowden extruder for Felix 3.0 or as an upgrade to 2.0 is Still in the development process. Mounted on a double profile from the side at the top. The bottom is made of 2 holder for coils (make in the end.) Here is the feed mechanism is finished. Now begin to seriously engage in the carriage))) Wait your comments. Image Image

I apologize for the photo, I just got the phone is very old and often fell. I think the meaning of construction read.

Well done!

Where are these likely to be mounted?

Although I would like to see a Nema 17 geared stepper version so it can produce more torque (aka faster extrusion/retraction rates) like this one http://www.omc-stepperonline.com/ratio- ... p-140.html

I've been playing around with a custom version of this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:63674 but looking to mash a dual version, possible extending to the side. I want the filament axis to be along the z Axis, with the motors extending out the back so they are not really seen, and Extruder control out the front for easy filament change

Here is what I'm testing at the moment, filament is not in use and only a short length to get an idea of how it can drive.

I was just there and screw it, it looks cool)) well, the high torque is not necessary, since the thread should be easy to melt. Spring allows you to push the bar even when there are defects or curves. Until tester. Busy alteration of the carriage. And yet, I bought these engines because of the presence on the shaft of the flats. The flats are needed for secure fixing. And all dimensions are taken from the original parts, so to re-flash the Board is not necessary.
