The Bondtech LGX Large Gears eXtruder is the first of Bondtech's filament feeders using Bondtech’s new Dual Drive Technology based on larger drive gears.

7 new features on the Bondtech LGX eXtruder:

  • Larger drive wheels for increased filament grip
  • Filament pre-tension lever for repeated results
  • Multi-function interface socket for tool or application quick swap
  • Drive wheels’ maintenance windows for easy cleaning
  • Compact, light, and symmetric design for increased performance and compatibility
  • Multiple mounting hole patterns for an easy and flexible setup
  • A small step for a greener future: craft boxes without bleaching and no coating

The LGX can also be ordered to come with different add-ons including the LGX Shortcut and the LGX ACE. The LGX Printheads are the combination of these add-ons with the LGX.

The LGX™ Shortcut is a special hotend that mounts to the side of the LGX™ eXtruder. With the LGX™, it forms a print head that will excel at printing ALL most common materials and especially the soft and flexible. This add-on comes in two variants: Copperhead® and Mosquito®

The Bondtech LGX ACE Hotend is an add-on attachment that mounts to the front of the LGX eXtruder. The different variants (Copperhead®, Mosquito®, Mosquito Magnum+®) of the LGX ACE Hotend are designed for rigid and flexible materials, improved cooling capacity, and high flow rate applications.
