The Lyman Filament Extruder V6 was designed and built originally for a Church Group through Pastor Glenn Grimsley. As Glenn has had a bad accident and no longer communicates with me I have changed the Creative Commons Attributions to Share Alike.

This simple extruder worked so well I have made three, one for black, one white and one for other colored filaments. V6 Extruder is the simplest one I have designed and is easy to make and is inexpensive. Also, I am extruding the best ABS filaments with it.

As the design progressed a number of items have been updated, so I am including most of the 69 STL files created, though less than 20 are used. Thus you should go through them a pick the ones that you are capable of printing.

The attached Construction Manual should give you enough information to create one. In it is the BOM and wiring diagrams.

The Spool Winder is not included here but will be available in a new thing.

I have three (3) V6 extruders, one for white, one for black and the third for other color filaments.

Two items I do not use, one is the fan and the other is the variable speed control. I found that in my shop configuration that all I needed was the temperature adjustment and the nozzle size to control the diameter of the filament.
