Aerostruder build.JPG

To build and fit an E3D aerostruder hotend to one, or both of the Lulzbot Minis. The Aerostruder setup will allow printing with flexible filaments as well as rigid.


  • 3D printed parts created
  • Brass inserts applied
  • Extruder motor mounted
  • Extruder assembly mounted
  • Limit switch mounted
  • wiring harness finished
  • Electrical testing
  • Fitting and alignments, change slicing profiles or E-Steps setting in Marlin firmware if necessary


When doing long extrudes (manually pressing the extrude button with more than 50mm extruded), it has a habit of grinding the filament, which does not occur during regular printing. The cause of this is not yet determined.

To Do

  • Octoprint / Cura slicing profile for Ninjaflex
