Printer Mod: Flashforge Aluminium Extruder Mount AssemblyRated 5/5 based on 1 reviews.
Note the current revision includes 6mm press-fit connections for the filament guide tube as shown in the first image. If you are interested in receving a version with 4mm connectors or the "ditto-print" version please feel free to get in touch.
Options available include a direct replacement for the standard aluminium extruder mount as well as an updated version to suit 4mm PFTE tubing into a compression fitting.
The FlashForge Aluminimum Extruder Mount Assembly by WMD Products is an aluminium replacement for the stock extruder bar, fan mounts and top shroud found on the FlashForge Creator and FlashForge Creator Pro.
There are some great features on this upgrade that make working on the extruders that much easier, including the nozzle height adjustment which can be done with the servos in place, as the nozzle tightening screws are on the end. Additionaly this comes in a standard or bowden variety for the filament tube holder.
- Clamping design for thermal barrier tubes. Makes setting nozzle height easier with no measuring tools.
- Change nozzle height without removing parts.
- Lighter weight than the original parts.
- Less parts.
- Fans mount directly to heatsinks. No plastic spacers to lose.
- Steppers are mounted more securely and are easier to remove.
- Better heat dissipation.
- Looks awesome (but seriously.. look at it!)
Well worth itBy: Justin Brown on 15 December 2015A very worthwhile upgrade to the stock Flashforge extruder assembly, makes maintenance and adjustment significantly easier. I personally found that it helps to add a squirt of WD40 to the extruder heatbreak tubes before inserting them, to make it easier to adjust nozzle heights later. Also remember - You need to loosen the stepper motor bolts as well as the side bolt when adjusting nozzle heights.
