Anyone know of a feeder replacement for the Ultimaker 2 for printing (a lot) of flexible filaments (ninjaflex/filaflex)?

After 2 days of finicking with it, it's just a pain, not realistically possible to print a lot. So a new feeder is needed, preferably one that attaches to the hot end to eliminate the bowden.

Thanks :)

i had hazzle free prints with ninjaflex and the bondtech extruder. Also swapped the PFA bowden for a PTFE bowden. not the one from bondtech, which has a too large inner diameter. Worked at first try.

Which bowden did you swap it with? This was for a UM2? Also you changed the hot end?

Thanks :)

Don't bother with printing with bowden if you require a lot of retractions. If it's a simple shape then you can get it to work quite well but you really need a head mounted feeder or flex drive if you require good retractions.
