We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Based on OhmEye MicroExtruder, configured to use 608 skate bearing and zenith HEC1063 corner brace along with other hardware I had at hand.
Based on OhmEye's extruder https://github.com/OhmEye/RepRap/tree/master/extruder
geared extruder and hobbed drive from www.2engineers.com
Local hardware had a different L bracket and as I had no 605's I altered this to suit 608'z and a slightly different fulcrum location. the extra plastic piece is to offset the mount hole for the L bracket to swivel on.
Many have reported reliability issues with this geared drive, ensure fully greased up, and also watch acceleration. I believe the biggest issue lies in peak acceleration retract to extruder, causing tooth failure.. as per https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft2PxD-q7aU
