Our MonoBlock concept provides a more precise and enjoyable 3d printing experience. By engineering the apx175 to be an all in one Hotend and Extuder combination, yet with familiar architecture, we

can offer a lighter, more ridged, and fully upgradable solution that can be installed on any FFF 3d printer.

Performance Characteristics:
  • At close to 30 grams lighter than the popular separate extruder and hotend choice, your printer will require less force to start, stop, accelerate and change direction. This translates into more precise printed parts at higher printing speeds
  • Rigidity is key to all precision manufacturing machines and 3d printers are no exception. Our MonoBlock design eliminates the clearance tolerances required when manufacturing multiple parts that must fit together. This translates into a higher controlled and more rigid assembly
  • Our fully supported filament path ensures any 1.75 filament can be used with less headache and great success. 
  • Designed to be the similar length as separate extruder / hotend direct drive assemblies. This ensures an easy swap without running your bed out of Z travel as seen with other combined units on the market.
