Bowden Cable Extruder V2

The design of the first extruder was improved by using the principle of captive parts. By inserting the metal parts and mechanisms directly during additive fabrication, less parts remains to assemble. The design is cleaner and easier to handle.   For example of captive parts, the springs and the compressor […]

I wanted an extruder that keeps its tension setting when I release the filament and I wanted it to be easy to use and maintain while looking more finished. To do this, I chose a concept that closes around the drive gear and the tension mechanism. The filament is found […]
