DIY EXTRUDER / FEEDER DESIGN?

Recommended Posts

Posted · DIY EXTRUDER / FEEDER DESIGN?

Cant afford to buy 10 Bond Techs, so what is the next best option?

Ive been looking at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2289203

Also been looking at doing a Gregs wade

I welcome any assistance?

Im using the qty10 UM2 originals, with the iRoberti feeder. I want to get better results with retraction and to speed my prints up.. Max Im getting is 50mm/s

Please don't keep pushing me on the Bond techs, just cant afford them,

So DIY is the only affordable option

Thanks for any assistance. really appreciate any help, as will have some down time next , so want to get all the bits ready.

David.

The "next best" option is actually the "best" option...the ZGE...that will cost less than a Bondtech (unless you count your own print time) ;)

If cost is crucial you could also go for this part...adding a gearbox to the existing UM2 feeder, or the iRoberti feeder:

That should give you the advantage of the UM2+ feeder while still keeping the cost...and tinkering down to a minimum.
