Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

thanks! 240c is pretty high for flexible. is running this high the recommendation after cold pull? or should I look to run it closer to the range I normally have (225-230) another question on cleaning: is there a recommendation on cleaning the nozzle - external/bottom of extruder? I've heard mixed t...

Re: First layer weirdness

I print IC3D ABS from Cura almost exclusively. no issues here. I've tweaked default settings though. here are my general settings: - print temp 238 - bed temp 85 (remove at 50) - flow rate 98% - speed ~ 30mm/s - layer height (typically between .2 / .3) - to avoid warping and improve adhesion i nearl...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

I haven't tweaked any of the off-the-shelf retraction settings. (retraction enabled, 2mm distance, 4mm/s speed, 1.2 mm of minimum travel, maximum retraction count of 90). Since I'm not switching nozzles, I don't believe the nozzle retraction settings are used at all. I can try disabling retraction a...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

Cura 2.6.63 Started with Standard but pretty heavily modified at this point. I suspected print speed as well, but the FASTEST i'm printing is 16mm/s. inflill is 14, wall 8, etc. should be slow enough for ninja stuff. my only thought now is more temp adjustments or maybe fan settings (thinking heat c...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

I’m using the flexydually v2. I’m attempting a T1 (flexible only) print. I’m still struggling. Im printing small (20x20x15) cube like structures (custom shape). I’ve had mixed success. To test I print 1 cube. But I’m trying to print grids of 8. I tried grid of 4, 8, 16. I will be happy with 8 in a b...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

(continuing the conversation with myself ;-) I'm still struggling to print this semiflex stuff. I had one successful 3.5 hour print. the second attempt clogged less than a quarter of the way into the print. I reduced the size of the print and same issue. However, I now believe my problem is TOO high...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

Alright. Things look a lot better. The jams were definitely stemming from the extruder being too close to the bed. Once both extruder heads were properly leveled and re-calibrated it printed better. I still am printing at a fairly high temp - 232 (in comparison to the ninjaflex - 225), but I'm able ...

Re: Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

i think i figured it out. my front extruder was WAY to close to the bed. everything needed to be recalibrated. Back to the calibration squares I went. I think I'm in better shape now. fingers crossed, heading into a bigger test print. (FWIW - i still not too sure about this material. I've had more s...

Taz 5 / Flexydually Ninja Semiflex

Has anyone had luck printing this material? I must assume that answer is yes. I cannot find settings that work. clogs / extruder gear skipping. i've tried so many different temps and settings. still no luck. (pretty much everything in the 220-232 range). I normally print ninjaflex at 225 with no iss...

Taz 5 / Flexydually Print Speeds

I was using older versions of cura and have recently updated. I unfortunately lost my old fine tuned profiles along the way (one fault / wiped machine). I’m still getting used to the newness of the updated Cura. I see a lot more speed knobs. I noticed print speed is something like 12mm (or in that b...
