It’s an attempt to desgin easy to asssemble affordable universal extruder for RepRap 3D Printers. After some evaluation of iteration 1 of the extruder, we have done some changes to make it use very few components, that are easy to make and assemble.
aSensar Extruder – assembled
Design of Arm
In v3, the arm was designed, The function of the arm is to
- act as a filament guide
- press filament against the gear.
Here is the evolution of the Arm
aSensar Extruder Arm i2 prototype is simple and 3d printable. This is first testing of it.
Based on this test we concluded we need to do some modification. In the next version we will make more simple design and have more spacing between the gear and the arm.
