Bondtech BMG on M2

Post by mkmachining » Tue May 15, 2018 4:01 pm

Hi guys, anyone done this extruder swap? I just got a BMG in, it will require an adapter plate to bolt to the stock M2 motor.

Stripping filament has been my bigness problem with the M2, it's better with e3D hotends but still the vast majority of print failures.

Yes, I upgraded my M2 with a BMG and an E3D. I use the metal motor mount flipped around and a replacement V4 single extruder mounting plate cut in half. I also replaced the stepper motor with a smaller one. I now am able to print with ninja flex without any problems vs problems with the original extruder. I found this post to be helpful.

I upgraded my fan setup per the post above but the cable management box would not fit. I zip tied the cables to the motor mount and kept printing.
