Abstract

Now that your Extruder is complete, it’s time to bolt it onto your 3D printer frame. Your 3D printer works by feeding a plastic filament into the heater core of the Extruder. The plastic melts and is then forced through the Extruder’s nozzle and applied to the worktable to print three dimensional objects.
