Thank you

Ultimate Greg's Wade's Geared Extruder - 30mm version

Gilles, you need to print a bracket to mount your extruder on like this one. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:57668 I am currently working on printing my own greg-wade extruder for my printer.

Prusa i3 support for Gregs-Wade-Kuheling Extruder
by avalero

Hi, Andrew!
Can you make a mod for it with 1 linear bearing on the bottom of the carriage? I have a regular Prusa i3 but I don't want to disassemble my whole X axis to upgrade the carriage... :(

Hi everybody,

I am posting this comment just so you take note that mokash770 has published what I consider to be an extremely interesting derivative of this X-carriage, which does not require the use of nylon zip ties for the GT2 belt anymore. Take a look!

Estaría bien mas espesor por la parte del Extrusor ya que pega el motor en la P3Steel usando el extrusor Greck ademas que se quedarían mas empotradas las bridas.

Saludos y buen trabajo.

Hola Salvador,

Gracias!

Tengo un extrusor de tipo Greg's Wade's con un motor NEMA 17 de 40mm y este no pega en la estructura de la P3Steel, pasa sin problemas. Que motor paso a paso estas usando? Para las bridas, es verdad que se podrian estar empotradas un poco mas, algo como 0.5mm, todavia esto no me ha causado ningun problema.

Podrias por favor "upload" unas fotos de tu montaje? A ver si tenemos una idea de como resolver tus problemas.

Saludos,

Andre

Mi motor es el de 48mm NEMA 17 y por el cento perfecto cuando llega al lado derecho pega en la placa de acero de la P3Steel.

Con el carro estándar pegaba solo en las cabezas de los tornillos puse unos planos y solucionado.

En este caso tendría que imprimir un extrusor que he encontrado de Pablo La Huerta que separa el motor.

He mirado el scad pero no esta la opción del espesor habría que diseñarla y lo veo mas complicado, mirare lo de imprimir el extrusor o alguna separador.

Gracias.

Hola Salvador,

Tienes muchas opciones, listo algunas a seguir:

1 - Cambiar el motor paso a paso por uno de 40mm. Con los engrenages del Wade's no necesitas un motor con tanto torque.

2 - Imprimir un separador de 5mm. Esta es una pieza muy sencilla que puedes disenar con OpenSCAD en algunos minutos.

3 - Cambiar de extrusor. Bueno, esto ya es mucho mas complicado. ;-)

Saludos,

Andre

I'm using this for my P3Steel (one without 30mm holes) and I ran into a problem. Badly positioned zip-tie heads can bump into the screw heads in front of the plate when printing or homing, so be careful with zip-tie positioning ;)

Hi Mikus,
That is absolutely correct, I actually had the same problem! :-) I'll take a photo of how to properly position the zip-tie heads to avoid this issue and add a warning about it in the Instructions tab.
Thanks for reminding me!
Cheers,
Andrew
