You won't find many materials that molten PLA sticks to as little as PTFE (TFM is a modified PTFE), since it is one of the most non-stick materials known to man, and it also has some of the best high-

ups, I forgot to mention: UMO with heated bed update ? should be the same as the UMO+ therefore, right? :)

fun tests !

the PIB thermal insulating power, after heat nozzle and waiting since about 20mn.

the coupler can be manipulated safty by hands

Hi @Gudo,

thanks for sharing all this. I think a lot of people are reading about your developments!

Your last post dates from a few days ago, wondering if you have made any further progress :)

Looking forward hearing from you!

Many thanks SandervG

Yes, actually I'm still test, always on the PLA since I took advantage of having print jobs to do, before continuing on tests at higher temperatures, I am very optimistic because with the PLA, it is going very well, I had a small problem with the PLA Wood that has rather revealed as a nozzle clogging

I will not fail to communicate on progress

forgot to mention this work

to stay in my design spirit, an alternative Aluminium hot end support which reuses,the UM2

metal isolator and the PTFE, in my prototype it's a PBI coupler

Hi to all

thanks 00D00B

after dozens of hours of service whith good print results, a few minutes for checking if everything goes well, a few seconds to unclip the fan sets and voila! screwless print head :p

20160719_111529.thumb.jpg.e2ba0e485e6632770b6783d0784223b6.jpg

the PLA prototype units seems well survive at an average of 210 ° long-time work, except a small heat block contact at the rear of the centrifugal fans duct,

no deformation of the XY support.

the PBI coupler is OK

the print head is very stable, no drift in the 3D axis

It's time now to test other materials at higher temp ! ;)

oehhhh, exciting! Sound like great test results!

What do you think the challenges are? How it will affect the heath break? If there will be any friction in the hot end?

    Great work!

    I assume this would fit in the extra head on this picture as well (the smallest cross section where everything has to pass through from top to bottom is 14x20 mm) ?

    Hi SandervG

    sorry, I'm afraid I do not have understood well your second question....

    Hi Dim3nsioneer : thanks ! ask SandervG, I think that the manufacturers don't remain insensitive to things happening in the forum  ;)

    Hi foehnsturn : thanks ! I follow your "multi extrusion approach" thread, you done very impressive works.  It's difficult to answer your question, like that cold! but I think it's quite possible to do something more compact for your technical approach.

    No we don't ;)

    And since you are changing to PIB for some part of the hot end, that is also where the filament passes and makes contact, no? So, some materials go well with others, some react more and create friction. So I was wondering if you suspect to any of these new, high temp materials could create difficulties with PIB, besides the question if it will withstand the temperatures.

    OK ! I suspected before beginning, especially to have friction problems with the PLA on PBI which is not the case, it is known that the PLA was poorly extruded with different materials such as ceramic, peek, or  full metal hot end.

    I can claim that a full PBI hot end works well with  PLA extrusion.

    The specifications of PBI claim that no other known technical plastic in melting condition can paste it,

    The challenge now is to check it, it can not stick but eventually significant frictions may occur, we don't know, the next tests will allow for see.

    Hi to all

    Success !

    First test at 250° print temp of the PBI with ABS material,

    Benchy was printed with the EasyFil from Form Futura

    standard ABS material settings of the printer

    0.4mm nozzle, 0.1mm layers, 50mm/s print speed, 0.8mm wall/Top/Bottom, 90° bed temp, 25% cooling fan, 3mm retract distance....

    No any extrusion problem, no friction issue, the ABS slides better in the Bowden tube than the PLA

    The diffilculty was more in the bed adhesion managing and in print temp fine tuning to find the right temp suitable to this ABS filament, I started print fisrt with 260° then slowly down to 252°.

    It's not yet the top , but it's quite good print result, it was worth it to catch a good headache because of the ABS vapors, Im not used ;)

     

    Result after a light clean of some small dots with the fingernails,

    there are 2 horizontal lines seen on the the third pic,

    the first near upper the bed, it's due to the temp tuning from 260° to 252°

    the second higher, it's due to a suddenly small warping on the bed

    Looks super! But men you finished your bed stabilizer? I want that!! What does it use!? I want that so badly!!

    Also great print men!

    Hi  Neotko! thanks

    I 'll share the bed stabilizer STL files, it's needed 2 x 6mm aluminium rods with M6 threaded tips, the bed still stays a bit flexible but much less than before, the system deletes especially all micro vibrations and possible tiny tremors due to the motion of the printhead.

    Could it be possible to print the rods in diagonal? Maybe with a flexible material so they also work a bit like a spring? Just thinking out loud.

    I really need that for my printers!

    Edit: Oh I see... You screw both sides to generate tension and make all the assembly more rigid to avoid vibrations? Interesting indeed

    Yes I think ! it could to be printed in one part in replacement  of the rod + the tip attach on one side .  ;) and the all could be mounted closer to the side panels to avoid a potential collision with the print head.

    Hi to all

    PET material is extruded really nicely through the PBI ! I love this material

    240° print temp , same Cura ABS settings for the test
