Has anyone here played around with any of the belt driven extruder designs (similar to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:84678)? If so, any thoughts? Do they work as well or better as a herringbone gear setup? any surprises?
I’m thinking a belt drive flexystruder would be an interesting project. the motor bracket and pulley set should weigh less than the standard Wade’s bracket and gear slightly. Extruder inconsistency on very small parts seems to be an area my machine still needs work in, so if it is indeed a more accurate method i’m all for trying one, but I would like to know if anyone else has had a good or bad experiance with them before I give it a shot.
