    Bondtech has released a preview video of its new extruder the Bondtech LGX. It incorporates a Copperhead hotend with an extruder with a Mosquito hotend to come later.

    Bondtech AB comments from the video:-

    "This one showing is only a short filament path version. You will see many other options, including bowden and high flow direct drive."

    "It will include a custom Nema 17 pancake 25mm. Overall weight, stepper and extruder : 218.6g"

    I just got a LGX and Mosquito Hotend. Working on a way to adapt it to the toolchanger now.

    Yes. Got the LGX + Mosquito installed on the toolchanger and it's working great. Much better than Titan + bowden V6.

    Sure. I modified someone else's design for a mirrored BMG. They did 90% of the work.

    EDIT: Also, I'm not proud of it, but I had to use a file to remove a tiny amount of material from the inside of the black receiver part to make the stepper motor fit.

    Thanks a lot. ! I will give it a try. If you can share step files, I can try to modify and maybe improve some things.

    I installed it on T3 so if you want to put it on T0 or T1, you'll want to mirror it.

    I am waiting for the extruder with an LGX short-cut with the mosquito hot end. Or I would use the LGX lite with short bowden
