Bondtech Upgrade Kit for Wanhao D6
This extruder upgrade kit for the Wanhao Duplicator 6/Monoprice Duplicator 6 will replace the original feeder.
The original motor is used and the PTFE feedtube is held securely in place with an industrial 4 mm push-fit connector for reliability.
This kit provides a high-performance material feeding system with the ability to print faster with improved quality. The adjustable thumbscrew allows you to fine-tune the force acting on the filament.
Installs in about half an hour with standard tools available. Installation video below.
The housing parts for the Wanhao D6 upgrade kit are professionally SLS printed in polyamide for maximum strength and precision.
E-steps need to be updated to 415.
To prevent the printhead from colliding with the rear frame the max movement needs to be reduced to 190 mm in the Y-direction. A new firmware is available for download with the necessary changes implemented.
On some printers, the printhead has trouble reaching the Y-homing endstop before the front of the extruder collides with the frame, in order to solve this, an o-ring is included that slides over the x-shaft that makes the endstop to be activated earlier.
Instructions for how to do this available here: Installation note for Y-endstop
