Optional Accessories (sold separately from the extruder kit)

Please visit the link below for the optional accessories.

User supply items:

The following items are not included in the kit and they need to be provided by the user.

- A 12V, 30A DC Power Supply;

- A 3D Printer with 20cm x 20cm x 20cm printing envelop (for printing the Hopper and the Hopper Base), the STL files will be provided;

- 18 AWG stranded copper wires (red, black, yellow, blue) - the length of the wire is depending upon how you arrange the extruder, power supply, and the control unit. (for my case, 4-meter for each color is more than enough);

- Power sockets and plugs;

- Basic hand tools (wire cutter, screw drivers, pliers, etc.);

- Solder, Soldering Iron, Solder Paste.


As the characteristics of material vary significantly, care must be taken to work out the optimal extrusion conditions (extrusion temperature, extrusion speed, pressure inside hopper, etc.) to achieve the desire result.


This machine must be operated in a well ventilated area and be attended by an operator constantly to minimize hazards (fire, toxic fumes, etc.).
