Instructions

Lyman made the mechanical parts for two extruders.
Mulier made the electronic parts for two extruders.
We each assembled our extruders and began testing, changing and retesting now for 4 months. Improvements are sure to happen.
Full construction and operating instructions are included in the manual. You will find and understand all the features and functions by reading the manual.

Keep in mind that the Sensor, Level Wind and the Spool Windup sub assemblies are optional. You could build the extruder without these and still extrude filament with only having to wind the filament onto a spool from the floor as shown in earlier extruder versions.
Good Luck.
