Bondtech upgrade kit for Wanhao I3.
This kit provides a high-performance material feeding system with the ability to print faster with improved quality. The adjustable thumbscrew allows you to fine-tune the force acting on the filament.
The housing parts are professionally SLS printed in nylon for maximum strength and precision.
The quick-release lever lets you load and unload filament with ease for quick filament changes.
Spring loaded pre-tension on the filament.
This kit uses the original steppermotor that came with the printer and is installed in around 1h.
Full installation guide available under the “Installation guide” tab.
For simple installation we have now produced a custom mounting bracket as you can find below in recommended parts.
The original metal plate that holds the extruder needs to be modified in order to give room for the extruder, this is easily done with a hacksaw and a file.
Maximum X-movement is restricted about 15 mm on the right side.
E-step needs to be adjusted to 140 step/mm (with the LCD panel)
Note! The version 2.1 of the Wanhao I3 have a different part cooling fan housing that will make the housing to be lower than the nozzle, a custom printed part cooling fan housing could be used instead.
The kit consists of the following:
Extruder parts in nylon with thread inserts.
Hardened drivegears in steel.
Harded ground shaft.
Bolts M3x45 mm
Shim in alu.
