Filament extruder drive derived from Airtripper's Bowden Extruder V3 (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:35404)

Modifications include:

  • Parametrization of many dimensions
  • Ability to feed 3mm filament
  • Align filament path with Mk7 drive gear
  • Add filament infeed tube mount to facilitate live feeding of new filament
  • Replaced M3 x 6mm button head screw with M3 x 6mm socket head screw
  • Minimize gap bewteen preload idler bearing and its pocket

The ability to live-feeding new filament is much improved in this design. An example of its performance may be seen at: http://youtu.be/CeC4qyN01uE
