Rough Assembly and Filament Guide


I have worked out a slap dash way to get all the hardware into the extruder as well as a narrow filament guiding piece to ensure a smooth flow especially for inserting and removing filament. The odd shape means I need to make a lot of adjustments to the tensioning lever arm and elsewhere around the machine. A time consuming process with a very unorthodox solution to jam detection. Normally people use expensive and complex laser/light sensors for this process so we will see how this more mechanical idea goes.
