Aluminium extruder for geared Nema17 by blddk Nov 13, 2012

Description

I wanted to replace my old extruder with something that would be more durable, so I decided to make one out of metal instead.

It takes 3mm filament, uses a geared nema17 motor, is spring operated so filament can easily be changed without using any tools, and it will most likely last longer than the printer itself.

Looks like they only want to deal with me if I am a company, which I am not. So guess I need to wait for them in the store.

We get them from Kysan. http://www.kysanelectronics.co...

Once we're caught up on the kickstarter orders, I'm sure we'll have them available on deezmaker.com as well.

But where to get them? When I got my nema17 motors I had been searching for nema14's too, but found none that was easily available.

It should also work with a geared Nema14. They are smaller (and lighter), but the gearbox has the same mounting holes. They have a 6mm shaft instead of 8mm, though.
