Replacement Parts

Post by Asphalt on Mon Nov 02, 2015 5:53 pm

I received my new extruder assembly in the mail today. Other than contacting the company direct, does anyone know of a source for replacement parts such as extruder tips, heat sink blocks, or that weird filament guide tube thing?

I found some stuff (assuming we can use Weistek parts) on Aliexpress, but it's not cheap. For example, a complete extruder assembly is US$120+shipping.

Pretty sure you will be able to swap in all Weistek WT150/WT200 ("IdeaWerk") parts for Root, and WT280A ("IdeaWerk Plus") parts for Root Plus.

you can get the PTFE tubing on Amazon. Print heads and heat sinks as well.

This is the closest I have found for the aluminum block.

http://www.amazon.com/Generic-Aluminium-Heating-Printer-Extruder/dp/B013WR1VC8/ref=sr_1_42?ie=UTF8&qid=1446646371&sr=8-42&keywords=printer+heater+block

It would require two screw holes to be tapped to hold the guide tube.
