Bondtech QR Universal Extruder - 1.75mm Questions
Will this work with a Wanhao i3 Duplicator i3 v2.1
asked by Guest on July 19th, 2017 at 7:21p.m.

It is possible but may be a little involved. First you would have to change the configuration to Bowden style with the extruder on the frame. Next you would have to find a place to mount it and print the mount found at http://www.matterhackers.com/store/digital-designs/bondtech-qr-extruder-mount-for-standard-printer. For a direct drive configuration, the Bondtech BMG Extruder - 1.75mm may be a better option. Contact us at support@matterhackers.com to discuss further.

Will it work with an MP Mini Select?
asked by Rainwolf on July 5th, 2017 at 1:20p.m.

As with any other printer, you will need to do the following.

  1. Engineer a way to mount it to the frame.
  2. Connect the motor wires (it might not use the same connector as your existing motor wiring).
  3. Change the steps/mm setting in your firmware.

Hi! Could this extruder work with the Geeetech MK8 Direct feed hotend?
asked by lefthandsh8k on June 23rd, 2017 at 7:43a.m.

Nope. This extruder is designed to fit a groove mounted hot end, like the E3D v6 or J-Head. The Geeetech Mk8 is definitely a Makerbot style hot end, so it will not work.

Who makes the motor for this unique extruder. I wonder how loud. I have CoolMuscle motors on my Ord Solution 5 extruder model and would this unit fit.
asked by ToolBuilder on November 12th, 2016 at 3:55p.m.

You are not able to just use a standard NEMA17 motor. The Bondtech comes with the motor. Is there a specific reason you don't want to use the motor that comes with it?

If you want to use your own motor, then I would recommend looking at the Bondtech BMG.

- answered by cope413 [MatterHackers] on June 26th, 2017 at 9:26a.m.

I was in touch with Bondtech and was told that I need a special NEMA 17 with an 8mm shaft rather than the 5mm shaft that comes with my Rostock Max. I would prefer to use my current NEMA 17s, can you please confirm that my current NEMA 17 is compatible? Thanks

- answered by IvanHandler on June 25th, 2017 at 6:04p.m.

The motor isn't anything special - just a run-of-the-mill NEMA 17. The gearbox is what is special, and I believe Bondtech has that contracted out.

I'm a 3d newbie with a new Raise3d N2 printer. I have three questions. 1. Is the Bondtech QR a good change to make? 2.Do I need to buy the E3D hot end also? 3. Does the QR come with instructions?
asked by Murray. You can email me at kidseguin@gmail.com if you'd like. on June 4th, 2017 at 6:34a.m.

We just started carrying Bondtech upgrade kits for the Raise. This page will tell you more about the advantages. This kit uses the stock hot ends so there is no need to switch to an E3D.

I have a Folgertech FT-5 and would like to upgrade Bondtech QR Universal Extruder - 1.75mm and E3D All-metal v6 HotEnd Full Kit - 1.75mm Universal (Direct) (12v). How hard would it be to setup if i'm able to do so.
asked by Brian Morrell on May 28th, 2017 at 11:28p.m.

This would be difficult considering how the direct drive configuration is mounted to the frame. Some have explored the Bondtech BMG option but I have not seen any results.

Is the Rostock mount that you can print from your site for a rostock V2 or V3? Thanks!
asked by Nick B. on May 20th, 2017 at 8:28a.m.

It was designed for use with the Rostock MAX v2. However, a standard mount should work with a v3 though you may have to alter the holes on the side of the printer to attach the mount.

asked by Guest on April 24th, 2017 at 9:19a.m.

Yes. You would need to print a mount for the frame to make the configuration complete.

Will this work with a cubify cubex printer?
asked by John mongold on April 18th, 2017 at 11:06p.m.

My initial reaction is "No". The CubeX utilizes the Print Jet configuration for extrusion. A component of this assembly is the Jet Driver which connects the extruder motor to the board. For a Bondtech QR extruder to work, it would have to interface with the Jet Driver and be able to communicate with the board. This in my assessment is a serous "hack".

Bondtech QR (bowden) + E3DV6 + Rostock Max V2 = Ninja Flex ??? really?? don't lie!
asked by 6063 T6 on April 1st, 2016 at 2:28p.m.

Absolutely. I have that very setup on my personal machine and it prints ninjaflex with no issues.

- answered by cope413 [MatterHackers] on April 1st, 2016 at 4:23p.m.

I have a Folgertech Kossel 2020 delta printer that does NinjaFlex like no other... Put the temperature few degrees higher and your golden. I have my extruder on the frame and it pushes the filament through the long PtFE tube... and I'm using stock extruder with one square gear...😆😉

is this a good replacement to the ez-struder that comes with the rostock max v2?
asked by Logan Walla on March 4th, 2017 at 8:14p.m.

This is an excellent choice to replace the EZStruder.

Is this for a 24vdc system?
asked by Guest David Vidal Rodriguez on January 5th, 2017 at 6:58a.m.

It will work with either 12V or 24V. Stepper motors do not care so much about the voltage supplied to them as the amperage.

Upgrade for a TAZ 6? - Would like to upgrade a TAZ-6 to dual extruder, and to 1.75 filament. Would a pair of these (and I suppose e3D hotends) work?

Can this be fitted to the Makerbot Replicator 2X Machine?
asked by rhluttrell on April 20th, 2016 at 7:09p.m.

Bondtech is now working on Makerbot options that will be released soon.

- answered by Guest on August 13th, 2016 at 6:21a.m.

It would be difficult to modify the Makerbot 2 with that extruder, but it should be doable. You would need to find a mount for it, and you would also need to change the firmware to adjust the steps/mm for the extruder.

- answered by tanderson [MatterHackers] on April 21st, 2016 at 11:33a.m.
Do you have a kit for the Raise3D N2 for dual extruders?

The pictures show a mounting bracket, but none came with the extruder - how am I supposed to mount it???
asked by William on May 14th, 2016 at 1:51p.m.

Sorry for the confusion. We didn't notice that the stock photos had a mount pictured.

All of the mounts can be found here -

Will it work on s ROBO 3D printer?
asked by James Cullins on April 5th, 2016 at 4:00p.m.

You would need to do some modifications to the printer. This would mainly consist of figuring out or designing a way to mount it.

- answered by tanderson [MatterHackers] on April 5th, 2016 at 6:02p.m.
It looks at though this extruder extends quite a long way out in front of the stepper motor. How much print space are we likely to lose because of that. Follow up - Is this compatible with the Makergear M2 (I imagine yes but would like to be sure)
asked by Guest on April 5th, 2016 at 1:13p.m.

Any change in build area would depend on how the extruder is mounted in your machine. The Bondtech does not come with any mounting hardware. You will need to find or design a way to mount it on your X carriage.

The Bondtech extruder is "compatible" with the M2 in as much as it is compatible with any printer.

Will this work with the Airwolf 3d printers?
asked by Steven on April 5th, 2016 at 11:43a.m.

You could modify an Airwolf to use a Bondtech. The older XL and 5.5 models would be the easiest to modify. The HD and Axiom printers would be more difficult.

will this work with the printbot simple metal with ubis metal hot end?

This is not a direct replacement for the Printrbot extruder. Your machine would require extensive modifications in order to make it work.

When did the highest quality nylon replace metal for the utmost strength and accuracy?
asked by Rick on April 5th, 2016 at 9:44a.m.

It would be significantly more expensive and difficult to machine the parts for this extruder.

Also, there is no need for the strength of aluminum or other metal for the body of the extruder.

Can this unit switch between 1.75 and 3mm filaments? I have a bunch of 1.75 I want to use up before I switch over to 3mm
asked by partsoven on March 28th, 2016 at 10:48a.m.

They are not switchable. If you need to print 3 mm filament, you will need to get the 3 mm extruder.
