E3D extruder anytime soon?

As I have been researching the printability of Nylon, I have noticed excuses in place of solutions when concerning this material and the TAZ line of printers. Sure it will print at very slow speeds on certain types of nylon, the higher strength ones want higher temps to print this material. Which means a different extruder entirely.

The failure of the Buddaschnozzle to print at 230+C in forum posts makes me not even want to try it for fear of my $180 extruder failing. I would like to know when the design team will be offering a J-mount for the TAZ 4 to allow the use of what is obviously the best extruder by user review and printed models, the E3D. The others come close but at $80 this seems like a no-brainer to just make a mount for the E3D.

Let me know when I can buy one for the TAZ.


Someone posted this the other day.
EZ E3Dv6 Drop-in Replacement for BudaSchnozzle v2.0 on Lulzbot TAZ found on #Thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:374717

you rock, I’ll give it a try.

For those of you considering this… The E3D comes as a loose parts kit without instructions, not that everyone needs them, also the mount link mentioned took a few tries to get a perfect print, should be setting this up for some Taulman “Bridge” nylon prints in the next few weeks. I will post pictures, and now that I see what the mount requires I will design my own.
