E3D ToolChanger & Motion System Bundle inc Tools & Hemera Extruders
The E3D ToolChanger and Motion System is an advanced research platform that allows up to four Multi-Material / Multi-Function tools
(such as lasers, subtractive tools, pick & place, paste extruders, inspection cameras, and anything else you can dream up), to be utilised during a single print.
Choose between a 4 x Bowden V6 tool bundle or 4 x Direct Hemera tool bundle and don't forget that we have our blank tool kits available for you to design your own tools.
Hemera extruders and PTFE tubing are included in this bundle along with the Motion System, ToolChanging mechanism, plus your choice of Duet connectivity.
PLEASE NOTE - Printed parts are not included in the bundle, you will need to print them, files here.
-Duet Control Options:
WiFi: Remotely connect to your ToolChanger via Computer, Laptop, or Tablet.
Ethernet: Is your machine in a garage or shed with an unstable WiFi signal? Ensure a reliable connection by hardwiring your computer or laptop to your ToolChanger.
Direct: Leverage the full power of Hemera with direct drive toolheads, providing top class filament control with short filaments paths and uncompromising grip with dual drive hobbs. Perfect for challenging materials such as TPE's and TPU's
Bowden: Do you need lightweight tools for super-fast speeds with no vibration artefacts such as ringing? Opt for the Bowden setup for powerful reliable extrusion from Hemera extruders paired with lightweight V6 toolheads.
A Fabtotum inspired CoreXY Motion system provides a fast, precise, and sturdy platform. With no flying motors, no crossed belt paths, and an incredibly lightweight moving mass.
The Motion System is built for high speeds and quick accelerations. Moon’s motors and Genuine Gates 2GT Belts produce fast, reliable and longer-lasting performance.
To ensure the high accuracy of the Motion System the three main axes come pre-assembled, allowing for a simple assembly experience with no additional need to tension.
The ToolChanger ToolHead is the core mechanical component of the tool changing system. Bolting directly onto the Motion System’s X-Carriage it provides the pickup and drop-off action enabling the use of different ToolHeads using the standardised E3D tool plate.
The Duet2 wiring kit provides a neatly managed, plug & play solution for running the Motion System, ToolChanger ToolHead and up to four V6 Bowden HotEnd Tools. Whilst designed for the Duet2 WiFi / Ethernet in mind, it should be generally applicable to any microcontroller capable of controlling four tools.
The 400W ToolChanger power supply is not suitable for use with the E3D Varipower bed, if you do plan on using a Varipower bed you will need to source a higher wattage power supply.
