Mini Quick-Fit Huxley sized extruder #30DoC day 4

For Day 4 of  30 days of creativity ( #30DoC ) here is a miniature sized Huxley extruder, designed for my Quick-Fit X carriage.

Ideal if you need a small and lightweight 1.75mm extruder for your 3D printer.

It's a direct extruder (not Bowden) using a Nema14 Motor. 

It also has an inbuilt mount for a 30mm fan to keep your thermal block nice and cool.

It's designed to be used with the Huxley Herringbone gear set I did for Day 2.

It all seems to be mechanically working, but it's not fully tried and tested quite yet.

And I made a new Idler block with a bit more strength to it

The files you need are up on Thingiverse Here.

A little late publishing, but it's still just day 4 here in the UK, time for bed...

Don't forget to take a look at all the other wonderful work for 30 days of creation, * be inspired *
#30DoC the story so far - Day 1 -    Day 2 -   Day 3 -  Day 4 -

Thanks for looking, let me know if you print one.

More tomorrow.
