MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder
The MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder is a special extruder designed for use with the MakerBot Replicator+, Replicator Mini+, Replicator Mini Compact, Replicator Z18 and Replicator 5. generation 3D printers.
Open Platform: the Labs Experimental Extruder is part of the MakerBot Labs initiative to provide users with an open and flexible 3D printing experience. It allows users to experiment with a wider range of filaments from other manufacturers and advanced settings to achieve different 3D printing results.
Precise temperature control: the Labs Experimental Extruder provides more precise control over temperature settings compared to a standard extruder. It allows users to adjust the 3D printing temperature over a wide range, making it compatible with a variety of specialised filaments that require specific conditions.
Interchangeable nozzles: the Labs Experimental Extruder offers the use of nozzles with different diameters. This allows users to make greater adjustments to 3D printing and layer height, enabling higher precision or faster 3D printing depending on the specific requirements of the project.
Compatibility with a wide range of filaments: The Labs Experimental Extruder supports a wide range of filaments, including materials such as flexible filaments, composite filaments and other specialised filament blends. This extended compatibility allows users to explore new materials with unique properties and applications.
Advanced settings: With the Experimental Extruder, users gain access to additional settings and controls via MakerBot Print or other compatible software platforms. This allows greater fine-tuning of printing parameters such as print speed, cooling settings and advanced material profiles to achieve optimal printing results.
MakerBot Community: in the MakerBot Community, users can share their experiences, tips and changes. This community-led approach encourages collaboration and knowledge sharing between users exploring advanced 3D printing techniques.
