The amazing paste extruder with screw holes added for the printrbot x-carrage. I also removed the ball bearing indentations as i didn't think they were nessary.

OH YES! Sorry i completely forgot i uploaded this. The piece i printed didn't work properly, although that could be partly due to the quality of my printer and parts, and the fact I didn't have a proper belt. If you're looking to build this you're better off making the original. SORRY FOR ANY WASTED FILAMENT! :(

I'll leave this up for reference if anyone's looking for measurements for printrbot mounts or whatnot.


The lack of bearings could cause a problem, I haven't had time to test it properly yet. More pictures coming soon!
This is just a replacement body for the original paste extruder, which can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20733

I had a chance to print this over the weekend. Just wanted to let you know the changes you made affect the parts ability to function properly. If anyone wants to print this part be advised. The mount hole and belt guide on the idler side have been moved. They are no longer in alignment with the other belt guides. Also, the removal of the bearing holes has caused part rubbing. Though it will work for now I don't know how long the parts will hold up.
