Hobbed gear from brass?

The Prusa i3 was designed by Josef Průša in 2012 with the Prusa i3 MK2 being released in 2016. The Prusa i3's comparable low cost and ease of construction and modification has made it popular in education and with hobbyists and professionals.

Hobbed gear from brass?

Post by Vertigo » Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:13 am

AM I right saying the hobbed gear of the extruder is made of brass? I just upgraded to a hardened steel nozzle for printing metal filaments and maybe CF infused filaments later. But I fear the extruder gear will wear out if I dont upgrade that as well. Thoughts or suggestions?

Edit: turns out on the MK2S it would be steel, on the MK2 it was brass.
