Extruder Drive Upgrade drawings

Recommended Posts

well its basically just a polished up copy of the Bertho mod which is on Thingiverse.

But by the time you get hold of the bearing for it, which is an odd size and will have to be ordered specially, and

buy a load of springs to experiment with and so on, you will not be saving any money at all. So really if you like building things yourself, go on. But I dont think it will be cheaper, and time is money. So ultimately its actually

far cheaper just to order it...and quicker.

There was some mention of putting the extruder upgrade source files up somewhere but I haven't seen it.

If you want to DIY one and don't want to wait for Ultimaker to release the design, you could use Bertho's extruder as a starting point. There are some differences but if you're going to adjust the Ultimaker version to use different bearings/springs then I'd expect you can also adjust Bertho's design.
