Extruder keeps getting stuck.

Recommended Posts

It looks basically the same as Bertho's extruder design which is on Thingiverse (


), except that this uses some lasercut parts instead of the printed parts. I was planning on building Bertho's extruder upgrade next, but maybe I'll just buy this one... Again, it's just that shipping.. Even with the recent reductions its still awfully expensive to get stuff shipped from UM and I'm just across the channel in England.

we need an insider ?
Those are hard to find ;-)

Anyhow. The new drive has a few changes compared to the Bertho extruder upgrade. I like the fact that it's much easier to open/close and get your filament in/out. Also, buying this instead of building your own Bertho extruder guarantees the correct spring.

well i bought mine yesterday.

once again i came home last night to a crapped out large print, because the thumb screw became loose after 20 hours of printing ( i was away ) and the bolt had no contact any more with the filament... yippeee. one more hald model going into the bin.

THANK GOD !! for this new upgrade. If this crap with the extruder is solved, then I really think ultimaker is a stable usable home 3d printer for the masses.

Fingers crossed. I have a list of models I want and need to get printed.....

Ian :D

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
