Re: Mini 1 stops printing in middle of print.

Exact samething is happening to me.
Unfortunately, I'm unable to make any prints on this printer since a year or so...
Would love to come back to my Mini.
I suspect either the bed termistor or the bed cables.

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

Bad thing is that once you put apart the head for cleaning, the warranty is broken... This is what I was kindly told... The head just don't work for long prints. They should honors their work. I'm about to design a new one based on Bondtech parts. Look very promising. Best luck! If anyone have built...

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

And for the community, the original TPFE diameter tube version.
Good night! ;)

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

Yes!!! Spend my Sunday on it, but it works! It's printing for hours now... Hope it will for all of my parts. - Tighter tolerances around shaft and housing as well as around the ball bearings. This is really improving quality IMUO. No more shaking. - PRECISE cut at shaft diameter on the TPFE tube. I'...

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

Wish I could help, but I build mine from scratch and have had no problems. :oops: Retraction and everything works fine, and no jams yet! 'Knock on wooden head' for luck. I think it's a matter of precision in the opening of the PTFE tube. Mine is just so...! Can you tell me if your tube is like mine...

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

Is there a Solidworks part / assembly somewhere so I can rework this? I really need to get this working for the next few days... I've ordered an other PTEF tube and wondering if I'll build another unit. I've already spend too much time on this. Desperate. :oops: :? :( hElP! There is another variant...

I've been able to take the STL and import into SketchUp for modifications and cleanup.
Unfortunately, for the kind of work I intend to do, it is far more easier and accurate to design in context of cad part and assembly.
Thanks kcchen

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

After many tweaks, here are my conclusion: The Flexystruder is ok for small parts, but issues are increasing with the length of filament spent. I fully agree with kirispupis, this design is not ready for sale. There are major flaws imho. First: the hole diameter for the main serrated shaft is way to...

Re: Flexystruder v2 jamming...

I've successfully built a couple of parts in Ninjaflex last night, but the extruder jammed again... :evil: Found that the serrated portion of the axe was not inline with the filament path. Played with the washer order (different than the assembly picture) and it was a lot better. Print a coupe of pa...
