Description

Extruder for gearhead motor like phidgets.com/products.php?category=23&product_id=3317_1 or Makergear's gearhead.

T1 extruder guidler - like the Greg's guidler, but enclosed

T1 extruder for car v0.9 - Designed to mount on TrinityLabs rail.

T1 extruder for car v0.9b - same as above, but with secondary guidler on the extruder body.

T1 extruder v0.9 - same as the above extruders, but designed for a standard reprap carriage and not the rail.

T1 idler - this is IDENTICAL to the Greg's guidler

T1 extruder for both nema 11 and nema 17 gearheads is the same as the 1st file, except it has a 2nd set of holes for a nema 11 gearhead.

The extruders include holes intended to mount a 40mm fan aimed at the hot end.

I get 417 grams for a gearbox motor vs 371 grams for a 70 oz-in motor.  Bear in mind the stepper on the gearbox unit is quite a bit smaller than the 70 oz-in stepper.
Hey, what's the weight on that gearbox?  I"m debating going to a direct drive solution, as I've not really found a huge need for more torque with a 70oz motor - but I'd love to loose some weight...
