We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
The 00str00der is a belt driven extruder designed via collaboration between myself and Terawatt Industries (http://store.terawattindustries.com/77-00str00der-belt-driven-extruder.html). The extruder can be made to work with a variety of printers. It is the standard extruder for the new PrismX 3d printer.
Here is a video of it in action on the PrismX: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vMh1Gb-snw
The 00str00der is compatible with the kuehling x-carriage mounts via the included mounting adapter plate. OpenSCAD source files are available on github (https://github.com/iquizzle/00str00der). Pulley sizes are parametric so that any size can be used. There are options for mounting either a j-head or push-to-connect tube adapters for Bowden extrusion. "Standard" M8 hobbed bolts can be spaced to work with the 00str00der. Slotted motor mounts accommodate NEMA17 motors, and allow belt tensioning.
Parts can be self-sourced online, but kits will also be available through Terawatt Industries. For the moment, I recommend getting the parts you need by supporting their kickstarter campaign!
I may do some more experimentation with gearing ratios for the bowden setup. I will continue to add STLs here and update code on github as improvements are made. For now, I'm listing this as a work in progress. The design has been tested and it is working great, but it may need a few tweaks before I'm ready to call it a done deal.
