Extruder Gears

  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.

    $33.87

These are involute herringbone pattern gears for Wade's Most Excellent Extruder. The gears that came in my Printrbot Plus kit were warped and misshapen. Laser-sintered nylon is a very precise way to make objects, why not my extruder gears?

See the picture with the black and the white gears:
The Black gear came with my Printrbot Plus kit. The STL file shows a diameter of 63.78 mm. The gear that was printed by a Printrbot in my kit measures 61.25 (averaged 8 measurements) The white gear was printed by Shapeways in Laser-sintered nylon and averages 63.25 mm

If you want a little Headhunter - Gothic - Cannibal - Biker vibe on your 3D Printer, check out the Skulltruder!
