Extruder Design

An extruder was designed to mount to the mechanical grippers installed on Cooper’s FANUC robot. The extruder interfaces with various RepRap components (such as the nozzle) in a compact manner to mimize torques induced on the gripper. The feeding mechanism (a notched screw and a bearing for counter pressure) can be adjusted to accomodate a variety of filament sizes.
