So far, I hate it.

So far, the only thing better about it than the CW2 is that it extruded the exact right amount of filament on the first try.

Assembling it was hard. Loading filament was *way* too difficult. And if there's no resistance, it extrudes nicely, but if it's trying to push through the hot end, it skips a *lot*.

I'm going to disassemble it and reprint it on a Bambu this time, but my Voron was dialed in *much* better than the Voron I printed my CW2 on, so this is a pretty poor outcome.


Good quality, came fast

Fast shipping on a great extruder

There is a reason the G2E constantly goes out of stock, it is an excellent extruder.
I have one on my Voron Switchwire and (in a CW2 body) and wanted to add one (G2E standalone) to my Voron 2.4 as part of a Dragon Burner build.

West3d has become one of my go-to stores for all things 3d printing, great pricing and really fast shipping.

When I start my next project, West3d will be the first place I go to get parts!



Here, finally, is the upgrade/replacement to the Galileo 1 Extruder!  We have both the G2E a Voron Stealthburner drop-in Extruder and G2Z Z-Drives for V2-style printers (including V2, Micron, etc.).

From the official GitHub project page:

  • Galileo 2 is a full redesign, moving to a 9:1 gear ratio and optimizing the gearbox design over Galileo 1. No parts from Galileo 1 are reused with Galileo 2.
  • Custom 9T stepper with a taller spur gear resulting in 20% higher contact surface area than existing 10T stepper designs, resulting in better wear characteristics and power transfer.
  • Proper meshing of gears due to number of stepper teeth being divisible by number of planets (9T sun / 3 planets), which gives even loading on the planets / sun gear and improves wear characteristics and power transfer. Previous designs with 10T steppers had uneven loading on the planet gears.
