Printrbot Jr V2: New Aluminum Extruder, Reference #Printrbot

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve had the Printrbot Jr V2 for several months now and have had lots of issues with the original extruder design. So when I saw the new aluminum extruder, it was sold. I had a couple issues with it initially. The biggest being that there was no guide to show you how to put it together. Nor were there any reference pictures to tell me whether I did it right or not.

I’ve taken the liberty of creating a little guide to help anyone else looking to purchase and assemble the new Aluminum Extruder.
