I upgraded to a wades style extruder in order to get rid of noise and to up the extrusion speed – My mostly wooden Wades has a much too high gear ratio. The only problem – the gears it was designed with is extremely noisy, especially at the 8mm retraction I need on the Bowden to limit the ooze.
After completing tuning, this is what I made first. The difference in both noise levels and extruder operation is noticeable.
Print quality is also starting to look very good. I will publish the Slic3r settings used when I am done tweaking, in order to give future Morgan operators a smooth start.
