Push Harder! Full Steel Ahead!
Set of parts made of Hardened Steel to replace the plastic Drive and Main Double Gears on a Bondtech Large Gears eXtruder :
- LGX Lite;
- LGX Lite Mirrored.
Recommended to feed Engineering grade thermoplastics.
To use our LGX extruders above our default recommendations:
- with thicker mounting plates;
- at higher environment temperatures;
- at higher stepper motor currents.
— Lubrication is mandatory —
These drive gears are made of hardened steel. Without lubrication they will wear your motor gear down.
Use a brush and the supplied lubricant to coat the drive gear teeth.
— Metal gears conduct heat —
To feed PLA or TPU (low Glass Transition Temperature materials)
keep the stepper motor cool (current at, or below, 0.5A).
