Re: UM2 Material Settings for UM Flex-PLA and InnoFlex 45?

The Ultimaker Flexible PLA has been discontinued for quite a while now, even if i think we have one or two old spools still left in stock.

My current favorite flexible filament is the Ultimaker TPU95A and the Ninjatek Cheetah, followed by the Polymaker PolyFlex.

Can it (the FT-5) handle a 2500g extruder?

I am looking into building a custom printer, where the extruder will be a dispenser like this: http://i.imgur.com/Xe0xl9Q.jpg The total weight of the print head will be somewhere around 2,5kg and very long (about 40cm height) I will probably build a custom machine instead, but it would save quite so...

Re: Autobed Leveling video from Tom

I have been thinking about building a large format printer, and my plan right now is to use tool probes like the one used on cnc machines to touch off the nozzle against, in combination with a brush to clean the nozzle. Something like this: http://cnc-plus.de/en/Router-Accessories/CNC-Tool-Length-Se...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

The print head is not sold as a assembly, so you would have to order all the separate parts as spares.

Price... no idea :p

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Actually, Ultimaker told us specifically not to sell the 2+ feeder separately at the time of release of the 2+, it was only for warranty and service replacements, and they never sent a update that said it was OK for us to sell it separately to end customers, so our sales staff acted accordingly (sug...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Is it a variable depth extrusion screw like the one in injection molding equipment or a regular auger type screw in the extruder?

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

@PeggyB, is that extruder working well? Is the output consistent and well controlled?

We are thinking about trying to build a large printer with a pellet extruder at Stockholm Makerspace and have not figured out exactly how yet :-)

Re: Heater block replacement time?

The most important parts is as you say the TFM Coupler, the Rigid Spacer and the Olsson Block. It is a good idea to upgrade the fan shroud also, either to the 2+ one or by printing for example Labern's fan shroud, since that gives you much better part cooling. You don't really have to change the PT1...

Re: Z-axix linear bearings

Just send fbrc8 a email, they can definitely sell it to you as a spare part even if it is not listed on their website.

Yes, the nozzle size selector is mostly a way to load the correct profile.

Re: Heater block replacement time?

Yep, you should get a UM2+ fan shroud, a Olsson block, TFM coupler and the rigid spacer from the UM2+.

A alternative to the UM2+ fan shroud is printing Labern's fan shroud in a high-temp material, it even performs slightly better than the UM2+ metal shroud.
