Extruder Designed for Reliable Printing

This is the engine that powers the 3D40-FLX forward. The direct drive, all metal extruder is clog resistant and delivers smooth 3D prints. The 3D40-FLX extruder heats up to 230°C. When filament runs out a built-in detection pauses the print and resumes printing where you left off when new filament has been added. Also included in the Extruder head is an automatic Leveling Sensor that adds precision leveling for even more reliable printing.
