And then there was Extrusion!

Extrusion, glorious extrusion. Ah, this is Extrusion in its purest form!
After assembly of the improved BfB heater nozzle, finally succeeded in usefull extrusion speed! And that with the BfB boltdrive. Renoirs' item led me to give the original drive another chance.

So now production begins. The wishlist off things to be RepRapped, after having printed the minimug of course:
- curtain hook
- kitchen mixer tap handle
- motorbike (Yamaha xj900s) choke handle
- steppercontroller board (for the future stepper-extruder) mount

Hm, it's becoming a flat minimug so rotate it prior to printing...


  1. Johan! Great work. Nice to know that the coach bolt solved it for you. That's a good way to refurbish an old BfB extruder.

  2. It's not the coach bolt hack, as the original M8 bolt is in, but the improved heater nozzle. I guess it has less resistance, friction, than the original nozzle.
