Great Gear print!

Posted on July 20, 2011

Pretty excited about todays gear print.

I adjusted the Y axis because I noticed it was rubbing against a rod which is very close to the bottom of it. I basically inverted the rod clamps so it brought it higher which does reduce my clearance height, but thats OK since I can still print up to 100mm high (untested).

The gear is part of the Accessible Wades Extruder downloadable on Thingiverse:

The updated version of the extruder is basically adding a hinge to the idler seen here:
