Posted · Feeder for Flexible Filament

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 :)

Oh, I thought I had linked the shop: www.2printbeta.de If you are in the US, you can just look for 1/4" outer diameter, 1/8" inner diameter ptfe tubes.

And yes, i have a UM2 with ollson block.

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.

I use Roberts feeder which works well for me with the snap on guide, use a little oil in the Bowden tube to reduce friction.

    • "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.
