The Bondtech BMG-X2 extruder combines high performance and resolution with low weight and a compact building envelope. Together with our proven and highly celebrated Dual-Drive technology you can expect problem free material feeding. This extruder is used with the E3D Multiextrusion solutions Chimera+ and the Cyclops+ hotends for a compact multi extrusion solution.
This extruder is available in two versions, one for the older type of Chimera/Cyclops with a c-c of 18.00 mm and the newer Chimera+/Cyclops+ with a c-c of 20.00 mm, make sure to select the correct version for your application.
The housing parts are professionally SLS printed in nylon for maximum strength and precision.
This extruder only supports 1.75 mm size filament.
The Bondtech BMG-X2 is based on our proven BMG design that utilizes an internal gearing ratio of 3:1 together with precision cnc-machined hardened steel drive gears to give you a compact powerhouse for all your multi extrusion applications. Whether you require high resolution prints with small nozzles or high-flow prints with big nozzles the optimized gearing ratio combined with our industry leading drive gears provides unparalleled pushing power and lightning fast retractions in a lightweight and compact dual extrusion package.
Our unique Dual-Drive technology delivers uninterrupted material flow without fear of grinding or slipping in even the most demanding conditions. Bondtech users the world over will attest that even in prints with thousands of retracts our extruders perform flawless, with unmatched precision, and zero damage or degradation to the filament.
Our new BMG extruder feeds all material with high reliability, from slippery nylons and soft TPU/TPE filaments to highly rigid and sometimes brittle carbon-filled high-strength materials. The extruder is designed for 1.75 mm filaments, but has been tested to ensure performance of filament from 1.5mm up to 2.0mm allowing for high reliability regardless of the tolerance of the filament used. The filament path is fully guided throughout the extruder body and the housing maintains tight tolerances to the drive gears mitigating the chances of Filament misfeed when the hotend experiences increased backpressure or highly flexible filaments are used.
The thumbscrew tensioners allows the user to fine-tune the pressure exerted by the drive gears onto the filament. This gives you the power to adjust according to your preferences and to optimize for the type of material you are using.
To be able to do material changes in a snap, simply activate the Quick-Release lever to release the tension and pull the material to be changed out of the extruder, keep it activated and insert the new material.
The included high power Nema17 pancake motors provides high torque and a low weight.
Flexible mounting options
Our standard mounting bracket in CNC machined aluminium can be used to mount the extruder as on the photos or a simple 3d printed bracket can be used. You can download a cad or stl-file of the extruder that gives you the dimensions you need in order to design your custom mounting bracket. The extruders deliveres without mounts, if you need the ALU mounts please remember to add them below.
