Top Quality Kit

LDO makes some solid kits and this one is no exception. All of the parts here are well done and even come with a lovely sticker. This kit surpasses my expectations and was a pleasure to build. West3d was also quick with shipping and delivery so I didn't have to spend too long waiting at the window!

If you're interested in a Galileo 2, I can highly recommend picking up this kit!

Very happy

Everything but the plastic parts that you print yourself. Everything was individually packaged, and properly labeled.
Shipment was reasonable.



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.
