Title: Has anyone replaced the extruders on their Bukobot?
Post by: onovanday on January 10, 2017, 12:17:41 AM
I'm frustrated with my machine and I don't like the way the filament is fed into the extruders, so I am looking to swap mine out.

Looking for any recommendation if you've done this.

Thanks!

onovanday,

It's been a few months since your post, did you ever move forward on your upgrade?

I'm also frustrated with my machine.  I seem to be spending more time calibrating instead of printing.  I've been considering doing a full upgrade/mod  (hot end, extruder, build platform, auto bed leveling). But by that point it's almost an entirely new machine.  Maybe I should just start from scratch.  In either case, this looks like an awesome extruder with the E3D hot end: https://www.matterhackers.com/store/printer-accessories/e3d-titan-aero-extruder-12v-300mm

The configuration looks like a good match for our x-carriage (horizontal rather than a vertical Prusa-type platform).
