    The Vitamin G extruder.

    It's hard for water to get through a tiny nozzle orifice by gravity alone- so why would plastic ooze?
    Backpressure - residual compression stored by the filament is the culprit.
    Backpressure comes from trying to feed filament through the nozzle at a rate greater than it can allow.
    If the backpressure gets too high, the stepper motor will skip or, if it has the power, grind the filament.

    With fine resolution Vitamin G extruder will put down just the right amount of extrudate for the distance traveled every step of the way.  Backpressure buh-bye.

    The Vitamin G extruder is designed to mount atop a Spoolie box to prevent exposure of the filament to ambient humidity.
