@marypro Awesome 🙂
Just as a tip, make sure to spend as much time as needed removing that black paint from your auger bit, you can use a dremel or a steel brush. Don’t use the auger bit like that or the black paint will start to peel of when you start extruding and it will get stuck on your filament.

hello I would like to know based exactly on the extruder, of this video of Dave, where to buy all the pieces, and indicate if possible European Union, thanks

@marypro the auger bit looks perfect, and the drill is a pretty clever idea.
Keep us posted

@marypro,

You could also look into using a cheap motor control board L298N with your drill and arduino. This way you’d have more control over the RPM. There are some instructions about how to make it on Instructables.com and a video here

hi @jegor-m

many thanks for the idea and link for the tutorial. May be I’ll take that.

Actually, I was going to use the 3D-Printer’s mainboard — the mosfet(12V) controlled by connection to the Fun, for example. And the fun I can control from my OctoPrint for 3D-Printer.

Will see )

@marypro

L298s are great for controlling small motors, but may not be the best choice for this, the L298 can drive up to 4 amps, but your drill may draw up to 100A full load (test it with an ammeter). Your drill will already have a suitable MOSFET in it, probably conveniently located on a separate small aluminium heatsink, usually behind the motor. You can hook up a PWM drive signal directly to this, such as from your 3D printer fan driver board, but be aware the MOSFET in the drill won’t be a logic-level type, so the gate drive will need to be at least 7-10V. If the driver board has an output for a heated bed, this might provide enough power to run the drill directly, though the PWM frequency might be too low for a motor, and perhaps you already thought to use this to control the band heaters?

4 holes are ready — for 4 cartridges — 40W * 4 — 160 W. May be not enough for that extruder, but enough for printer’s power supply. If needed more — will create one more heating barrel with power from another power supply.

Tests are near).

When I saw your cartridges I thought they were a bit on the small side. You could try wrapping the whole barrel with fibreglass insulating tape.

So, I have some progress with my project. Was struggling with the motor — my drill is too weak for that work, so I was looking for the redactor. See, what I have found for first draft:

Now what I need — is to create a spool coiler, because now I can’t get the strait filament — no space before the floor.

The filament width for now is 1.5mm and that’s OK for now — I am going to that that with my printer.
