This is version 2.0. Currently on Pre-sale (ships December).
The Nimble is a Remote Direct Drive extruder. The stepper is split away from the extruder itself removing almost all of the weight from the extruder itself. The Nimble weighs less than 25 grams. The Nimble is powered via a drive cable that transmits the power of the stepper directly to the gear system inside the Nimble.
It is the smallest lightest extruder available. It is a very impressive extruder. The standard drive cable is 95 cm long and this is more than long enough for most printers. On a delta, it allows for a print volume of more than 1 meter tall.
(The AAA battery is not included or required. Only shown for scale.)
The Nimble can be mounted left-handed or right-handed and uses an adapter system. This makes it easy to install and easy to switch to another printer. For details, check out the adapter page.
The custom hob and the breech lever system allows any filament to be printed. From super hard carbon filled filament to X60, the floppiest filament in existence.
The Creality CR-10Pro currently does not support the Nimble. The driver used for the extruder stepper cannot handle the speeds needed for the Nimble. We are developing a solution.
