UM2 part for original feeder for flexible filament

Recommended Posts

hi,

I just published a modification of the original feeder UM2 to use flexible filament.

The explanation is in French, but it is so simple that the pictures explain everything.

With the filament Taulman Bridge or PA6 filament work any good.

I have not tested the NijaFlex.

Hello,

Can you explain how it work? how this modification help to use the flexible materials?

Thank you

Paolo

 

if you try to put a flexible filament in an original UM2 feeder, you will see that the filament passes behind the wheel of the feeder, because there is no guide.

The flexible filament always escapes by this empty gap.

This part prevents this, and the filament stays in a good position.

    • "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.
