Why do you want this upgrade?
A lot of machines come with extruders that are made of plastic and/or have weak tension springs. This brings to the table a very strong spring and all-metal construction. It’s a solid upgrade for many machines, especially Creality printers with plastic extruders. This extruder is a great budget option for making sure your prints actually get the filament they need without having to worry about a plastic one breaking or a weak spring preventing filament from being fed correctly. Looking for something that is geared for 3x the torque? Check out our Higher end Tough Extruder V2.
Some Creality machines are now shipping with press-fit extruder gears. See here for removal tips: Press-fit Removal
“Insert Random Internet Site Here” has this cheaper.
Looks can be deceiving. You don’t know the actual quality of all the parts that go into the extruder until you get it. With TH3D you get guaranteed quality. We always source our parts from only a few trusted suppliers and on top of that, we check all the parts when receiving inventory to make sure they are what they should be. No waiting a month from China to get something only to have the quality be poor or parts missing. Meaning you always get a smooth-moving extruder with a high-quality spring every time.
Our springs are sourced separately from the rest of the parts to have higher tension than others that *look* similar. Our after-sales service actually knows these parts and machines so if you have questions or a problem we actually can help, in English, you get up and running.
As an additional bonus, we include the much more wear-resistant steel gear that will not wear out fast like the brass ones do over time. Oh yeah! We also provide technical support from our US support team should you need it (unlike the other sellers).
