New Project: The MakerGear Mosaic 3D Printer – Part V: The Extruder

This is the fifth of eight guides in a series documenting my build of MakerGear’s Mosaic desktop FDM/FFF 3D printer kit.

  1. the frame,
  2. the Y-axis,
  3. the X-axis,
  4. the Z-axis,
  5. the extruder,
  6. the build platform,
  7. the electronics, and
  8. the first print.

This part covers installation of the extruder assemblies, which consist of the preassembled motor and filament drive / hot-end groups, and the cooling fan. The fan, heater, and temperature sensor are also connected at this stage.
