Hello, Now i'm using the e3d hotend for umo+ not the original print head.and i'd like to use syringe extruder .

so are there any other ideas  designs for syringe extruder except that one mounted to the original print head ?

If you want to design your own syringe extruder you can make one which consists of very few parts if you base it on linear stepper motor.

We made the one for out delta printer in the picture using this motor: https://www.elfa.se/en/linear-stepper-motor-moons-16hy7001-11/p/15446018?queryFromSuggest=true

You could probably attach such extruder to the existing print head using the print head screws.

    • "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.
