Hello,

I am trying to print InnoFlex 45 on UM2+ for few days. Unfornutally i don't have any satisfying results. I already tried general suggestion for printing flexible material. Is there any person who had succesfully printed with this flexible material? What settings did you used? I know that flexible material is not good for bowden tube, but maybe someone has more luck then me.

Thank you all for your responds

    Have you tried putting a few drops of oil in the bowden tube or using a oiler on the filament?

    you also need to print really slow like 10mm/s

    Hi Camfria,

    I'm not certain on the design of the Ultimaker 2 extruder drive, but many people find issues with flexible filaments in extruder drives that don't have a fully contrained path between the drive gear and the nozzle. If there are any gaps, the flexible filament can fold up in the space and doesn't reach the nozzle. See the guide here http://www.gyrobot.co.uk/blog/how-to-3d-print-with-flexible-filaments

    In may cases, you can find a model to print a different casing for your extruder drive on one of the 3D print file sharing websites like thingiverse or pinshape.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
