Chinese Extruders?

Chinese Extruders?
September 23, 2013 09:01PM
I'm Repstrapping some industrial equipment (3 good axes now, yay!), but I'm planning to buy an extruder soon.

There are a gazillion Chinese extruders out there that look pretty good for the price. But do they work?

Any thoughts on extruders? If anything, this is one part of the machine that I would like to buy as a turnkey solution. I just don't have the patience for bad extruders.

I probably should buy some new hot-ends to see if they improved. But, this is what I found in December: [jheadnozzle.blogspot.com]

My printer has Chinese extruders and seems to work fine, actually the whole printer is Chinese. I've never had any other printer so I cannot really compare. All I can say is that I have never had any of the issues I read about in forums, such as jams, ooze and so on. Could also be that I am not placing too high demands on it.

Actually, for accuracy's I have had some jams but none were attributable to the extruder, such as filaments with very inconsistent diameter or errors in the gCode
