This lead screw with the nut was printed dual in one print by our new Multex2Move Extruder - a patented oozing free dual- and quad-extruder.
This lead screw has to be printed in one print as the nut can´t be screwed on afterwards.
Thanks to an elaborate mechanism, the unused nozzles of the new four-color extruder Multex4Move are retracted behind a cover and only the active nozzle is brought into the operating range. Hereby it prevents molten plastic from dripping out of the unused nozzles and onto the printed object and disfiguring the printing result. Before switching to another nozzle, it is first cleaned before being put into the operating range to prevent possible impurities.
The Multex2Move soon will be available on kickstarter, if you wan´t to be informed about the progress or the kickstarter campagne, please subscribe to our newsletter:
Multec delivers innovation for even more variety
With the Multex2Move and Multex4Move, Multec delivers a new innovation which makes 3D printing even more diverse and professional. Besides using different colors, the Multex4Move offers the possibility to use different materials for the printed object or support structures - with a yet unknown clean printing result. In this manner, printed objects might for example have specfic areas made out of flexible material, while others are made out of stiff material, which offers the possibilities for an incredible amount of printed objects.
In addition, the Multex4Move offers the User unknown possibilities, since even nozzles of different diameters can be used in one single extruder.
Also available as upgrade kit for printers of different brands
Small, compact versions of this innovative extruder is available to upgrade existing 3D printers made by other manufacturers.
This way, many printers which did not deliver satisfying results can be optimized.
The two parts need to be printed at once, as the nut can not be screwed on afterwards.
