Drop-in/Easy Mod: Dual-Drive Feeder for M3-ID

Post by CalebPetersenPhD » Fri Oct 14, 2022 9:24 pm

Are there any easy ways to mod an M3-ID to dual-drive gears? My stock feeder ends up wrapping flexible filaments around the feeder gear.

If MakerGear is still developing new printers, I'd strongly encourage them to make a version with dual-drive feeders. Quite a lot of cheaper printers have them or have an easy upgrade for them.

I have not had such a hard time with TPUs, but I also make sure to purge the nozzle first. If you remove your nozzle, then load the TPU, it may help.
