- Drop-in 3D printer extruder retrofit kit
- Designed for Makerbot Replicator 2
- Print fast with flexible materials, higher resolution, and fewer failures
- Kit requires extruder disassembly to install upgrade
3D printer extruder retrofit kit for single-extruder direct-drive machines, such as the Makerbot Replicator 2. The Flexion extruder will allow full-speed printing of flexible filaments and improved accuracy printing with PLA and ABS. The precision machined components allow your printer to push on filament harder, achieve high pressure in the nozzle, and control of feed rates very closely. The self-cleaning drive will keep your long prints from failing due to a clogged drive. Works well with flexible PLA, TPU, TPE ultra-flexible filament down to 50 Shore A, and all the standard rigid filaments like ABS and PLA.
