Extruder Design


My aim was to design a extruder which would fit centrally to the x carriage on the Prusa I3.

What I had in Mind

Wanted a makergear mk7 filment drive, no geared drive direct from stepper, also take a E3d hotend


I have managed to get the motor wired up and have movement after a long hard slog asking questions in the irc channel, the problem was trying to match the correct wires to make it move in the correct direction
