Which extruder to get?

Postby roflmao » Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:58 pm

I don't know which extruder to get for my prusa nozzle mk2. Wade's Geared Extruder seems to be fine but If I have understood correctly it's just for J-Head hot ends?
Need your advice, guys!

Thanks

The Prusa nozzle MKII has j-head style mounting. Additionally, the prusa nozzle website states the following about the extruder options:

Developer Batch #0 units are shipped with Wade extruder compatible aluminium mounting plate.

It sounds like all you will need is a mounting plate. You can order these from several places online or print one yourself if you already have a printer or access to one. If you don't you could always use an online 3d printing service and a file from thingiverse. Either way it will work with Wades Geared extruder.

Thanks for your help. There are different versions of Wades extruder. If I'll stick with it, which one should I get? And are there any good alternatives for prusa nozzle?
