The MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder brings a completely revamped experience to the 5th Generation and + Series of MakerBot 3D Printers. Users can quickly swap between the reliability of the Smart Extruder+ or Tough PLA Extruder, and into a new sandbox platform with the Experimental Extruder.
Explore new materials, print faster with draft nozzles, and enjoy the same advanced jam detection, z-homing, and filament detection sensors as you have with the Smart Extruder+ and the Tough PLA Extruder.
Note: The Experimental Extruder is an experimental product and is not covered under warranty or MakerCare.
Creative Flexibility With A Range Of Materials
Push the boundaries of MakerBot 3D printing with interchangeable nozzles, custom material print modes, and unlocked advanced print settings.
Freedom To Switch From Production To Sandbox
Quickly switch from the reliability of the Smart Extruder+ to the Experimental Extruder to test the limits of your ideas.
Drafting For Speed
Print existing PLA materials with the included large diameter draft nozzles and dramatically reduce total print time.
Designed To Be Hacked
With a modified thermal core and a more secure thermal barrier tube, the Experimental Extruder was redesigned to make changing nozzles easier. Download and print the Experimental Extruder Jig to provide a more stable platform.
