So I have been trying to print a flexystruder for my taz 4 for a while and I keep running into issues.
- which material to use
- best settings to use
What materials will work, and moreso, what materials would be better or worse? Anything that prints at ABS temperatures or higher, and isn’t too flexible, should work. So for everything except the gears(which I printed in Taulman Bridge) I am going for visual aesthetics. So I have 3 materials which I like alot, t-glase, nvent, and alloy 910(can be dyed). Which would have the best properties? I think t-glase looks the best. So I printed 2 flexustruders, one out of t-glase, and one out of alloy 910. Here are some pictures below:
As you can see the prints warped about 1-2mm from the bed in the corners with both materials
I used 75% infill in cura, and this brings me to the question of, How much infill is necessary when printing the part with a much stronger material
Than abs for it to handle the same load? I’m sure that it would not have warped if I had set the infill lower.
Has anyone else tried using other materials beside abs/pla to make taz build parts? Can anyone answer some of my questions? I really would enjoy some feedback.
