Grinding filament

Posted · Grinding filament


I would like to know if you know,

how filament have to be grinded by the extruder wheel ?

Mine looks like tire tracks in the bowden tube.

Does hexa-screw set on the top of the extruder help to increase or descrease pressure on the filament ?

Other question :

How do you deal with the noise done by filament echoing on the back of the machine ? When I touch it, it stops then go on again.

It's boring for long prints.

THX a lot,

    Salut garenc,

    Dis moi tu as le feeder d'origine je pense?

    Tu peux changer la tension avec la vis sur le dessus en effet.

    pour ma part j'ai la trace du la roue dentée sur le filament mais il n est pas écrasé. (si j'ai bien compris ta question)

    Je te conseille d imprimer le feeder de lRobertI sur youmagine il fonctionne hyper bien et pour ma part ne fait pas de bruit

    Je vois que c'est la pièce qui vient chevaucher le bras...c'est celle-là qui reprend la vis de serrage n'est-ce pas ?

    J'ai vu aussi un guide pour le filament souple à monter dessus. Tu as essayé ?

    Oui et oui :) je dois refaire des essais avec le ninja flex mais avec le semi flex ca fonctionne sans soucis.

    ps: il faut un vis m3 de 30mm en plus de ce qu'il y a deja dans le feeder il me semble (et peut etre une plus courte pour tenir le roulement)


    The parts from the old feeder plus one 30mm M3 and one 14(ish)mm M3 (I shimmed mine with a few washers to get the right length). A very small section of the existing bowden tube for the entrance to the feeder (optional but recommended).

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
