    I'm working on the extruder right now, one of my goals is to keep it within the face profile of a standard nema 17 (42x42mm). This of course comes...

    It does have a great wow factor, it looks cool in general and I find the gear hinge type joints awesome. It's also cheap in general as it only uses...

    Augers are not super precise with their deposition, filament makers use an auger screw, but they use the tension on the filament to control diameter....

    I think you're really missing the point of why I started this thread, and my previous replies. I think the volcano also has a more powerful heater...

    I'm not sure most NEMA 17 motors are rated for 24V. Also, this thread is about designing an extruder, not buying a ready made solution. I'm not...

    I wont be using a metal gearbox or injection molded parts like the titan, since they are too heavy, expensive, or both for my application, so I'll...

    I've read that gear reduction actually makes retraction less precise, due to backlash in the gears. I'll look at gear reduction, and I'll probably...

    Have you used either/or any similar extruders? The flexion isn't too different from any other extruder, the brush is there because the deeper hobbed...

    It needs four steppers (three arms+extruder), three end stops and your choice of electronics (ramps and a mega should work fine). It's about as bare...

    I'm hoping to make a high speed printer, definitely above 100 mm/s for pla (thinking 150+). As for flexibles, with some minor modifications to my mk8...
