Â I am going to be using this bearing replacement on my replicator the next time i have to unclog my gear: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
I have already printed this (in ABS) and have a bearing and the screw and spring needed. the design makes more sense to me. no delrin plunger, and the side that is open will allow cleaning the drive gear without taking the extruder apart. I see lots of folks have switched to it and are having good results. Hopefully my experience will be the same!
Update: I actually got it to start printing again by cleaning out my drive gear. I'm finding that I have to do this more often with PLA. Honestly though, Its SO worth it. PLA is a mean, clean material. Digging it.
You know, I didn't want to get too adventurous either, but when I ordered my bot, I accidentally ordered a bunch of PLA spools instead of ABS, so I had to try and adapt once the ABS spool ran out. Truth be told, I've been having a lot of difficulty, especially at lower temps it seems. Its as filament just stops feeding through at some point during the print. I thought it might be the spool jamming, but now I'm thinking that the gear is having a hard time moving it. I've been looking for a fix for a while, but I haven't found any documentation beyond the stuff on the Makerbot website.
