New Extruder manual feed.

Recommended Posts

Turning 30cm by hand is hard, but I found a sollution. I undoo the leaver screw- lift the leaver up and swing down the ball bearing part.

Which is the normal way, if you could push it trough by hand before, then it wasn't putting enough pressure on the filament.

Do you have the old one or the one designed by Bertho? If you have the old design I would highly recommend either printing and assembling the one linked on Thingiverse or buying one from Ultimaker. It's a great upgrade, it's set and forget. It made retraction work much better for me, no more stripping since I installed it.

I have the new one.

    • "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.
