Re: Direct-drive extruder with nearly no space between hotend and hobbed bolt

For adjusting the tension, on the taz, the idler and tension adjustement screws are on the same side of the tension arm pivot. On the Flex3, the adjustment and idler are on opposite sides of the pivot. It look like their current version uses a cam adjustment, but comes with an optional screw adjuste...

Re: Direct-drive extruder with nearly no space between hotend and hobbed bolt

Reducing micro stepping is something I had not yet even thought of. My goal is to have very fine control of the filament feed for high resolution printing. I have been playing around with a .15 nozzle printing at .04 layers. I also have a .10 nozzle that I have not tried using yet. I also switched t...

Re: Direct-drive extruder with nearly no space between hotend and hobbed bolt

I ordered their flex3 drive 3rd gen extruder to use with the Hexagon, but have not yet received it. Then I will need to make a new mount for the taz. It'll probably take me some time to get it all done, I'm not real fast on projects, just ask my wife! If you search flex3drive on youtube, you can fin...

Flex3Drive has a 40:1 reduction gear assembly that works for direct drive extruders. It also allows you to move the motor off the carriage.

Re: I'll admit it, I like em small.

I broke out the digital microscope for these photos. I think my fingers give a better feel for how small these prints are. At a half inch tall, the print starts to fail. I also printed one a 3/4" and I'm pretty happy with the results. Side view 1/2" tall rook. This one didn't successfully print the ...

I'll admit it, I like em small.

Here's my second attempt at really really small. DSC_5697.jpg This was printed in ABS with a 0.15mm nozzle and a 0.04mm layer height. I printed two at once to help with cooling. The first attempt I made failed due to not enough cooling between layers. The total height of the rook is 1/2", or 12.7mm ...
