Lighten the load with a remote drive Bowden style extruder on your 3D printer!
The Zyltech All-Metal Bowden Extruder kit comes with everything you need to replace your existing extruder.
Currently only available in "Right-Hand" configuration. In order to extrude to the bowden hotend, the motor must turn counterclockwise from the perspective of looking at the assembly.
Motor and mouting bracket not included! Most printers have a mounting point already, but if you do need a motor or mounting bracket, you can get those here:
- Textured drive gear grips the filament firmly to push it through the bowden tube to the hotend
- Pressure arm with U-Groove bearing to hold the filament against the drive gear
- NEMA17 compatible base plate with all necessary screws
- 4mm pneumatic coupling grips the standard size PTFE tubing used on 3D printers
A Bowden setup moves the weight of the extruder and extruder drive motor away from the hotend, allowing for faster and more accurate printing. Screw holes are placed 31mm apart so this assembly fits any standard NEMA17 stepper motor with a 5mm shaft. Filament inlet is chamfered for easy loading and the outlet is fitted for a standard M6 pneumatic coupler for 4mm PTFE tubing.
