Mendel 3 Adding a second extruder
September 10, 2015 07:58AM
ladies and gentleman hello,

After a while that i have been off the 3d printing cause of the lack of materials i am back again with an upgrade i want to do for my printer.

I want to add one ore extruder . The question is if it can be done and if so does anyone knows what would i need ?

Also i know that some people uses hair spray for bonding objects to the table. Instead of that a solution like this would work in ur opinion ?

Thanks in advance guys

If this is an rrp mendel 3 then it can be upgraded to three extruders.

You will need a duet shield, extruder kit, bowden tube, thermister, heater cables....

Your exiting quickset hot end has apare slot so you dont need second , but you can choose to add a second hot end

All this is avilable in kits from rrp
