I just got our flexystruder up an running with some lime green FilaFlex. I was not impressed with the quality of the first batch of FilaFlex that I saw, but this stuff is much better, maybe they improved their extrusion process.

At first I was having difficulty getting consistent extrusion. It turns out that the filament was swelling outward under pressure from above and binding on the walls of the filament path, so I drilled the entire filament path all the way to the nozzle to 4mm and that solved the problem.

Thanks for designing this bam, it saved me a ton of time on this project:)

Here is a picture!

Printed some parts with Ninjaflex on my TAZ . That is some great filament. Made a RC tire just to test the new printer setup and the Filament. That tire came out perfect. Btw I used Cura.

Here a video

Awesome! Nice dual setup as well ;)

Have you tried any flexible/ridgid prints? ABS bonds to Ninjaflex really well.

Cheers

Note, the Flexystruder we sell in the LulzBot store doesn't require assembly. The OHAI-kit docs are for clones or homebrew.
