flex printing?

Recommended Posts

I just found out that I got flex pla instead of the usual pla (I didn't even know this was an option for printing :) ).

But I already got some ideas though.

are there any considerations to be made before attemting to print in this material? I'm thinking about trying it out soon.

its not the easiest to print with and would suggest you use Roberts feeder with the snap on guide. you can also put a drop of oil in the bowden tube.

These are the settings XYZ workshop recommend to print their dress so could be a good start.

Temperature - 230°C

Speed- 10-15mm/s

Sliced at 0.15mm

Retraction - Off

Fan- Off

Masking tape on top of heated bed

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
