Printrbot Simple 2014 Aluminum Extruder & Bed Upgrade Kit

The Printrbot Simple 2014 upgrade kit has an aluminum print bed and an aluminum extruder to replace the wood components of a Printrbot Simple 3D printer (sold separately). The kit, which requires assembly and includes fasteners, includes a 6061 aluminum print bed with a matte finish for a level build surface that will not warp. The 6061 aluminum direct drive extruder has a shrouded cooling fan, and allows heavier duty use than a wood extruder.

3D printers fabricate physical objects directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto a moving platform base from a robotic extruder nozzle. The material is most commonly a thermoplastic or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) filament.

Printrbot manufactures desktop 3D printers and accessories. The company is headquartered in Lincoln, CA.

  1. A Must-Have for the Printrbot Simple Now as standard on the 2014 Printrbot Printers, this aluminium extruder and bed are definitely what you need for better printing.The aluminium bed makes a flat printing surface and the only thing, in my mind, to give this a full 5 stars would be if there was a 100 x 100 heated bed to go with it.But the extruder is a different matter. There have been some filament feeding issues on the direct drive extruders that have been corrected with printable add-ons, but this is a…

  2. If you have a 2013 Printrbot Simple, this should be your very first upgrade. The wood pieces on the 2013 kit work just fine, but there are several advantages to this upgrade:1. Much better print surface. Flatter, more consistent, and when you need to replace your tape, there is zero risk in damaging the print surface.2. More accessible extruder. The new extruder is much easier to get to when you need to clear a jam or change filament. It is super solid, and helps bleed…
