    This is my extruder made based on my E3D 1.75mm hotend.
    You just need to print and snap-fit the hotend, no need for bolts to hold the hotend - although I have provided a hole if you prefer having a bolt.

    The extruder has a really small gap in the hobbed portion of the bolt/pulley, so you can print any flexible filament with no issue at all.

    Looks good Alex - a nice and simple design..

    What is the most flexible filament you have managed to get down it?

    Hi Josh, so far I have printed: ABS, PLA, Taulman 618, 645 and T-Glase.. Not even a glitch..

    By the way, this extruder with MK8 is amazing.. recommended.

    Cheers.

    Alex

    Can you explain what you had to do to make the extruder compatible with the MK8?
