Well we have to be careful exporting that PTFE tubing, never know what might happen if it got into the wrong hand up there in Canada! ;)

well tried my first attempt at printing ninjaflex with a disappointing result..

Printed out the flexstruder body built it up from a cannibalized standard extruder changed the nozzle out for a 0.5 heated up and got started..

Did bed calibration a couple of times and all looked good with a nice even strip all around the bed. got quite excited at that point !!

Started printing out the octopus file using the ninjaflex cura profile after the 3rd layer started getting weird kicking noises from the extruder and the main wheel wasn't turning anymore so shut it down for examination..

Looks like the filament had bunched up and pushed itself around the hobbed bolt jamming up and splitting my printed flexystruder body, guess the piece of tube I cut from the roll feeder ( the ID was too big but I thought Id try it anyway.. ) wasn't good enough for the job and left too much space around the hobbed bolt... so back to the drawing board :oops:

Does anyone know where I can get a short length of the correct size of ptfe tubing in Houston ?

Not too discouraged I was expecting to have to experiment a bit with this :D :D

Woo hoo, 1st print completed with ninjaflex !

Printed out the flexstruder with 100% fill built it up with another piece of the guide tube ( its getting a little too short now :) ) and cannibalized standard extruder and it seems to be working..

Using the ninjaflex config file from website and printed out the rocktopus file @ 20% fill and it completed pretty well, very "furry" surface compared to ABS but its in one piece and definitely very flexible !!

Very glad I used a glue stick on the bed as it was stuck firm, pretty sure I would have destroyed the bed coating without the glue trying to take it off !!

Now im gonna try and print the open RC truggy tyre ( ive nearly printed everything else in that kit ! )

Wish me luck,
SS

Truggy tyre completed @80% fill, tried at 20% but it got messed up in the fill area
Ninjaflex is awesome !

Hello, I´m new to the Forum and got my TAZ printer just 2 days ago and since then it´s running round the clock :)
I´m very interested in printing with NinjaFlex and so i looked into the Flexistruder.

I printed the Body Flexistruder V1.1 but now i´m not sure if i need any other parts besides the PTFE Tube, or if anything else can be used from the standard extruder. Is there a kind of "shopping list" which parts i need besides the standard extruder and the printed parts ?

thanks
Manuel

Maybe check with Lulzbot to see if they have a drop shipper in Europe as that may really help. I know they use drop shippers but im not to sure how far they extend. Give them a shout.

@moderator, this topic looks dead. Can we remove it as a sticky? It dates the forum.
