We do however have spare parts if you need them. Please contact us directly if you need spares or replacements.
Please also note we have made an improvement to the old hobb to improve print quality. Please see the grooved hobb product for more details.
Flex3Drive extruders are highly geared lightweight micro extruders which greatly improve your print quality, They can be driven by a Nema8 motor or via a flexible shaft.
The reduction in moving mass on the gantry or end effector, and the increase in the control resolution that is achieved by the gearing deliver a significant improvement in print quality.
This product is a kit of parts including the plastics for the G5 Flex Extruder. It does not include the printed parts required to mount it as these can be downloaded and printed. Hardware to complete mounting and installation such as brass inserts, M2 and M2.5 fasteners etc are included.
Full assembly and setup instructions in support menu.
The plastics for the G5 Flex extruder can be supplied as FDM SLA or SLS printed parts. Please select using the option menu as required.
Includes all drive-train hardware and fasteners aswell as the plastics for the G5.
