This is a variant of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20850

It is intended to use a hobbed drive gear like this http://trinitylabs.com/products/hobbed-pulley

There is a 608 8mm shaft and a 605 5mm shaft version.


Assemble like the Accessible Wade's but add the hobbed gear onto the shaft.

Filament path offset towards the Large gear by 1mm to fit hobb.

Hotend mount is for grooveplate. Openscad file is able to be modded for most hotends.

Some things may need to be adjusted depending on your printer. This is intended for .3mm layer height in order for the support to work...if you use a different setting it will need to be changed in the openscad file and recompiled.

A gear ratio adjustment may be required to adjust for the larger hobb diameter. I have been testing with ABS with good results so far.

This is a work in progress...any suggestions are welcome.

I'm using it in my modified Rostock and works great. Thanks for sharing.

Cool! I'm guessing this should work for the mini hyena? (I already have one on the way - your gear drive looks nice too, and a little cheaper).

It may work with the hyena. I am not sure the measurements but the openscad file should be able to be modded to work with many things.
