I created this hopper for the filastruder V2, as i was having too many problems using it vertically that i reconfigured for horizontal operation.
The Hopper extension and lid I drew up in Fusion 360, and used the window idea from thingi https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:277996, I used the hopper attachement for horizontal operation from thingi https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:439909 i put a compatible thread into this with thingi https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:157541 and to give the hopper a base I flattened off the top of the this thingi https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:89073, to produce my new hopper design for the filastruder v2 it holds approx 1kg of pellets, and has good flow into the extruder.
If i get around to it, if I put a thread into the other chutes from thingi https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:439909 this hopper can be used in the filastruder in other orientations.
I adjusted the hopper bracket to have a 25deg tilt on it as i run my filastruder now with a 25deg downward tilt, i found this to be a good angle for filament extrusion, and if you look in the photo 25deg is coming up around the maximum tilt available before i have to extend the bracket to allow it to clear the main body of the filastruder. I also put a locating collar on the bracket to ensure it stays in the right position.
