This is a belted variant of the jonas kuehling's greg wade extruder. for Buddaschnozzle. It uses the Lulzbot Taz 3 Extruder as a base. It is designed to fit the extruder latch and idler tube filliament guide, however neither of those sections are my design and are included for conveniance only.
Updated tensioner and main body to reinforce the motor mount. i was getting too much flex.
