sE1X goes bowden with new Airtripper mounting brackets!

   Lately I’ve been reading up on bowden style extruders and for the longest time I was against it, until now. The facts are there, and the proof is in the prints. Bowden style extruding offer’s many benefits to a 3D printer, the biggest one being(from what I can see) that your no longer lugging around a Nema 17 on your X axis carriage, which reduces a number of negatives that will show in your print. So to make a long story short, I think bowden extruding will become a standard in 3d printing because of the enormous benefits it offers and from here on out, I will be offering bowden kits here at Mobious Robotics LLC. which will be sold individually or with the sE1X kits.

Special thank you to s0up for all your help!
