Parts to convert Printrbot LC extruder to bowden cable feed:
-- Extruder to bowden including X-idler mounting bracket and insert
-- Bowden to hotend
This is for 3mm filament.
This is a partial derivative of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26963 with following changes:
-- Shortened base to fit width of LC X-carriage platform
-- Narrower base to save material and printing time
-- Taller block to accommodate for the length of the pneufit thread
-- M4 hotend mounting holes (like in Printrbot extruder) instead of M3
-- Removed base mounting holes nut traps (as the mounting is top to bottom, not bottom to top in LC)
I have designed the X-idler mounting bracket from scratch.
Includes extruder insert for easier filament threading.
Please see instructions of the original thing.
To modify the SCAD extruder to bowden model you'll need additional scad files from http://thingiverse.com/thing:18379 (jonaskuehling-default.scad, configuration.scad, functions.scad, metric.scad).
