.STL File / 3D model: MK 2 SINGLE/DUAL BOWDEN EXTRUDER FOR E3D V6 OR CHIMERA AND HK FABRIKATOR OR OTHER REPRAP

This is a second take on my previously published extruder design. Although Mk1 worked very well it was a pain to change filament as the tension on the drive was not easy to release.
This overcomes that problem, although the construction is a little more complicated, so I have also made a video. Again, the parts from the original direct drive can be re-used, but if you are making for anything other than a Fabrikator or are making a dual extruder, then you will need to source the following parts for each extruder;

13mm OD 5mm ID bearing with washers of similar dimension
2 m3 x 20 bolts
3 m3 x 10 bolts
Spring
Nema 17
14mm Hobbed pulley
2 m5 x 20 bolts

You might like to replace the plastic bowden feed supplied wit the E3D stuff with a good quality brass unit as described in my video.
