I designed this extruder for my new Merlin Hotend. the extruder is designed so it can be printed in one part, using support structures.
but be careful. there a many very thin structures inside, so you need a really good setup to print this part in good quality.
i used the merlin hotend with 0,2mm nozzle. every drive gear from 10 to 13mm diameter will fit just fine.
You need some screws, springs etc
-2x M4 threaded bolt 70mm
-2x M4 safety nuts
-1x M6 x20mm
-2x M4 wingnuts
-2x short 10mm springs
-1x M10 nut
-2x M4 x xx mm to connect the extruder to your x carriage (50mm hole distance)
1x 626ZZ ball bearing
Note: this is a work in progress, so i may change some minor things. i really appreciate yor help and i will be thankful for your suggestions and tips to make this extruder better.
Added the Thing Merex V2 1,75 for 1,75mm Filament
and slightly changed the design
Added the Thing "Merex V2 1,75_2 for 1,75mm Filament.
- i changed the motormount holes. now you can slightly change the position of the merex extruder on your motor to get closer to the bearing or drive screw.
Added the thing "Merex V2_3mm_2 for 3mm filament.
- Changed the motormount holes
Test of the 1,75mm Merex Extruder with the Merlin Hotend
Added a new Thing "Merex V2 1,75 support" with selfmade support structures for best quality. With support you have much less problems, easy to remove

For the Merlin Hotend.
You ll need to thread the Hole on the bottom to M10 so you can screw in the merlin hotend, then conter it with a M10 Nut.
For other hotends, you will need an Adapter , J-Head etc..
- you Must print this in ABS! The Merlin Hotend will get hot. the thermal barrier that gets screwed in the extruder will still get hot too around 60 to 80 ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ°C PLA will loose its stability at this temparature!
