Bondtech Extruder Upgrade Kit for Wanhao i3
- Motor not included, use the original stepper motor that came with your printer
- For simple installation, Bondtech is now producing a custom mounting bracket
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.
The housing parts are professionally SLS printed in nylon for maximum strength and precision.
The quick-release lever lets you load and unload filament with ease for quick filament changes.
The original metal plate that holds the extruder needs to be modified in order to give room for the extruder, this is easily done with a hacksaw and a file, or use Bondtech's custom mounting bracket.
Maximum X-movement is restricted about 15 mm on the right side.
E-step needs to be adjusted to 140 step/mm (with the LCD panel)
Note: the version 2.1 of the Wanhao i3 printer has a different part cooling fan housing that makes the housing lower than the nozzle, so a custom printed fan housing will need to be used with this extruder kit.
