Extruder stepper motor replacement

Recommended Posts

I have designed my own extruder that will not fit into the available space, so will have to mount it externally.

I want to test it without removing the extruder currently installed, so want to buy a separate motor to test it with.

So, what spec motor do I need to buy for this? Secondly, can I connect it to the electronics without having to unplug the existing motor, which will allow me to run tests with my new design and then get back to printing with the existing one without having to constantly unplug the things?

    • "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.
