We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Smaller version of Olekdh's extruder keeping all the good bits like the tilting screws, j-head lock plate and clean printing body.
The intention is to make an x-carriage that will take two of these either nose to tail or, if I can work out how to do it, mirror image.
I have rotated and moved the motor to allow the rear mount to be moved closer and shorten the whole baseplate, and should make it possible to mount these forward to back on the x-carriage.
Also has the standard 50mm spacing mounting screws too so will replace any standard extruder.

Print out all the parts and fit them together, you will probably have to run a drill through the holes to clear them.
This is now a working extruder so I have removed the work in progress tag. Use the standard Wade gears from one of the predecessors.
