filament labs updates: fixing the extruder and hopper drive [updates]
So today we worked on the surrounding box, basically the entrance to the extrusion chamber that includes the place where the auger grabs the plastic and feeds it into the chamber. It's made of a very simple four pieces of wood. Screwed into the base. The pieces are glued together in an effort to stop plastic particles from falling out the sides.
Then we took two pieces from the long "L" shaped aluminum piece we bought and glued them under the auger as a base and over the auger's back we put two excess pieces from the car door hinge to prevent plastic from falling. And we did this in the back as well.
Here's a demo of it working on a power supply.
