A retraction torture test for the pancake stepper extruder. I actually printed the first Yoda with the worm gear extruder a year ago.

that’s really quite impressive.

it really is! Sidenote: what happened to the sugru? And is your printer really THAT loud?

@Markus_Seidt Do you have a link to the pancake stepper extruder? That looks very nice!

@Rene_Jurack Quietness hasn’t been my objective so far. There is a noisy radial fan for part cooling and a heavily resonating housing atm. The sugru is still there and working fine.
