The new OmniaDrop V2.1 comes in six different versions.
The Standard version comes with two M4 threaded inserts. You can design the mounting plate according to your needs. The two threaded inserts need to be inserted into a 6 mm deep and 5.6 mm wide hole. The two mounting holes are 60 mm apart
The second version is the Hemera Mounting option which has two internal threads that are 34 mm spaced apart equivalent to the Hemera.
The third Version is the Prusa Edition which was developed to be a drop-in replacement for a standard Prusa i3 printer. Specifically for the Prusa MK3s.
The fourth Version is the Ender 3 Edition which was designed by Elia Palme to be directly mounted on the X-carriage of the Ender 3, Ender 3 Pro and Ender 3 V2.
The Eryone Thinker S Edition was designed by Rene from 3Dgeneriert and can be directly mounted to the X-carriage of the Thinker S.
The Artist-D Edition was designed to be a drop in replacement for the JGMaker Artist-D IDEX printer. The position of the nozzle is exactly the same as the stock extruder which means there are no X and Y offsets.
All-Metal Heatbreak vs. PTFE lined Heatbreak?
The PTFE lined version of the Heatbreaks improve the print quality of highly flexible materials. Some very soft TPU/TPE filament are very "sticky" when they melt, so by lining the Heatbreak with PTFE it helps to improve the print quality of such flexible filaments. The downside of a PTFE lined Heatbreak is that the maximum printing temperature is 260°C. The all-metal Heatbreak can also print flexible filament reliably however your print settings needs to be tuned more precisely. So if you only print flexible filaments from time to time, then get the all-metal Heatbreak. If you want to print mainly flexible filaments then get the PTFE lined Heatbreak.
What size and weight does the OmniaDrop extruder have?
OmniaDrop V2.1 extruder (without Ring Heater, Nozzle, Cooling Fan Duct and Fans) has a weight of around 250g.
The length (in X-Direction) of the OmniaDrop V2.1 is 65mm, which is one of the shortest extruders on the market. A short extruder saves you a lot space on your X-Axis which means you lose little to no build volume.
What material was used for the injection moulded Planet Gears?
The four Planet Gears are injection moulded using PA12 glass bead reinforced. Since PA12 is a "Nylon" it is a tough material however it has a low Young's Modulus (it is a bit flexible). The glass beads ensure that the Planet Gears are stiff, while the PA12 has a good lubricity and high Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT), making it an ideal material for gears.
What filament was used to print the parts for the OmniaDrop?
The parts were printed using PC/PBT. This materials can handle ambient temperatures of up 65°C. The PCB/PBT material only comes in a black/white colour combination.
Which material is used for the metal parts of the OmniaDrop?
Hobbed Gears = Hardened Steel
Planet Disk = Aluminium
Heatbreak = Titanium
Cooling Block = Aluminium
Sun Gear = Brass.
Bearings = Stainless Steel ABEC-7
Is there a mirrored version of the OmniaDrop?
Yes there is, you just need to write "mirrored" into the comment section of your order.
Can you use a BLTouch on the OmniaDrop?
Yes, there is a BLTouch mounting option available for the OmniaDrop extruder.
Please be aware that no OmniaDrop Version comes with a BLTouch, you will need to source this sensor yourself.
Which OmniaDrop Prusa edition should I choose for the Prusa MK3?
Choose the OmniaDrop Prusa edition 24V and write in the comment section that you have a Prusa MK3 and that you need the 5V 3-pin blower fans.
