Show me your Flex Prints

Recommended Posts

Very curious to see what you will be making!

I would consider printing flexible materials for the experienced user, and would certainly not start with it. Even though you are familiar with a Zortrax (how was that working out for you?) an Ultimaker is a different machine which behaves differently.

So I would recommend to first get familiar with PLA, see how the machine works and than move to the flexible materials.

Generally speaking flexible materials need to be printed slower than regular filaments.

Hi Sander, thanks for the feedback, and yes i will learn with the PLA and after that i will start with the flexibles..

By the way, some questions, what program you are using? Cura or Simplify?

And anyone have some profiles or tutorials to start on the ultimaker?

The Zortrax is working fine, +60Kg Printed in 1 year and prints with same quality as new.

By the way if you want check it at www.3drcstore.com

Thanks & Best Regards,

Andre.

    • "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.
