LDO Orbiter 2.0 Extruder


The LDO Orbiter V2.0 high precision direct drive extruder designed by Dr. Lorincz Rober in cooperation with LDO.


  • Shorter drive gears 11mm vs 15 mm
  • Hardened filament drive gears
  • Weight reduced to 135 grams
  • Smaller, more compact dimensions (11.6% shorter)
  • New motor design offers 40% increase in pushing force in real printing conditions and much improvedin acceleration performance
  • Flipped drive gears – filament path closer to the extruder center for a more balanced design and perfect fit on delta printers as well
  • Stainless steel filament exit guide with 0.2-0.3mm clearance to drive gears for best TPU printing experience and extreme wear resistance when using abrasive filaments
  • High temperature resistant injected housings, GPA12
  • Machined PEEK secondary drive gear sleeve
  • Tension mechanism with grab screw design (Captive Grab Screw)
  • Mounting screws in line with filament exit path – improving housing stiffness and easier mounting
  • Perfectly aligned filament path
  • New, smaller and better PTFE input coupler
  • Motor position rotated by additional 10 degrees for easier maintenance and assembly
  • Filament sensor add on with auto load and unload button add on feature
  • And many more small changes to improve mechanical accuracy and design look

Available on backorder


Smaller Dimensions/More Compact

  • Reduced the overall size

Filament Path and Mounting Feature

  • Filament path closer to the centre to facilitate mounting on delta printers and better mounting
  • Inline mounting screws with the filament exit paths
  • Better housing stiffness and eliminate flexing during high force pushing
  • Improved filament path

Extrusion Performance

  • Optimized the motor design to maximize its torque in the speed range the extruder needs
  • The result is a 40% increase of the pushing force in real printing conditions
  • Retraction speed up to 120mm/s
  • Acceleration up to 3000mm/s²

Stainless Steel Filament Exit Guide

  • Improves the extruder lifetime when used with abrasive filaments
  • The gap between the filament guide and filament pushing gears is about 0.2-0.3mm
  • Maximum TPU printing speed – the filament can go only into the hotend, no space to be tangled around the gears

Tensioner Design

  • POM washer and stainless steel spring are retained on the screw when the tensioner is removed
  • Reduces the possibility to lose the washer and spring


  • Motor position rotated by additional 10 degrees for easier maintenance and assembly

Filament Sensor

  • New filament sensor design with filament auto load and unload button
  • Filament entry lit by coloured LED
