The Aluminium Bowden Extruder is a sturdy high quality extruder designed for a NEMA 17 stepper motor (the stepper motor is not included). A Bowden extruder is mounted on the frame of the printer and the filament is guided with a PTFE tube to the hot end. The advantage of this design is that the weight of the printing head is a lot less than with the conventional desgin were the extruder is directly above the hot end. The down side is that it is not possible to print with flexible filaments.
