Reprappro Huxley Extruder Groovemount M6 by spymongoose Oct 18, 2012


The wierd little pin thing that retains the bowden tube in the Reprappro Huxley design was not my favorite part to work with - especially when it came to dissasembly.

Since bowden tubes tend to be a higher maintence item, I found the dissasembly and reassembly of the extruder end of the bowden was a pain. I though about how the design could be improved and came up with a number of bad ideas. Finally, I looked at my groovemount extruder on my full sized prusa and thought that I could do the same for my huxley. I have been using a special wades body that used M3 holes and screws to hold the groove slots of the hot end inside the wades body itself. (see designs similar to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27054 ) I have simply borrowed from that design and retained my huxley bowden tube in a similar manner with this design.
