Filament Routing: Y-splitter
An injection molded plastic part used for routing multiple filament to the gantry assembly.
Sealing foams are sandwiched in between the plastic part to ensure the filaments going through are not exposed to moisture.
The part will be made in delrin plastic to minimize routing friction.
Y-splitter prototype SLA printed in clear resin.
A molded piece that controls the bend radius of the PTFE tubes as they enter the gantry assembly.
Filament Routing: PTFE Funnel
A clip feature at the bottom of the funnel secure the PTFE in place.
Filament Routing: Swivel clips
A molded piece that controls the bend radius of the PTFE tubes as they extruder assembly.
PTFE control during printing
These parts swivels around as the gantry travel to different locations during a print.
