High grade aluminum DIY syringe extruder by Liam Gilbertson

DIY syringe pumps and other syringe devices are used in different 3d printing projects for depositing various materials from living cells to solder paste dispensers.
Liam Gilbertson posted a very detailed tutorial on how to build your own syringe extrude from MendelMax 2.0 or any other 3D printer based on 2020 extrusion rails.
Be aware that this is not a novice level project since the extruder is very sturdy and may require some machining knowledge and more specialized tools like laser or water jet cutter able to cut 3mm aluminum.
