When is a roll of filament that costs £700 a good bargain?

When it comes with a free printer :)

Was speaking with the guys at MTW recently and we were throwing about ideas to convert an ungeared carriage mounted direct drive extruder into a light weight hifi extruder using the Flex3Drive internals and its 40:1 gearing, with minimal change to the machine or its existing production parts.

Ended up designing these direct drive adaptors. They have the same mounting footprint as a Nema17 and fit in place of the motor which is then moved off carriage. The good thing about the end result is there is no change required to any existing parts aisde from creating a mounting point for the motor bracket on the frame of the machine.

Now working on a couple of variants with slight differences on the casing for different printers that use these types of extruder. Will be publishing source files very shortly once I can get everything polished off, with hardware kits made available aswell.

Settings dialed in - Check!
Retraction hell tested - Check!

Printed on a Kossel Mini DeltaFlex - a pimped Kossel Mini with a few tweaks and a #Flex3Drive KM3 printed onto #PrintBite

Im a happy with that :)

Done on a Delta equipped with #Flex3Drive and includes integrated hotend and print cooling. I think that is settings dialled in and retraction hell checked! The effector in this design will bolt straight onto a Geeetech Rostock mini delta.

That voronoi skull btw is 20mm high !!

I have just completed a tranche of work that has now been released at flex3drive.com and id like to work with one or two of you to create a suitable end effector for this Geeetech machine. I am not too familiar with its end effector parameters, but its easy enough to draw up the effector to match one of the extruder assemblies in the flex3drive range and bring it together. Flex3Drive is a mature established product from which others may try to emulate however it is unbeatable. We also have a couple of dual drive 2into1 duo combos in the pipeline too.

If you have an Ultimaker Original, or one of the UM2 machines and think it would be even better with a high resolution light weight direct drive extruder, this might be of interest. http://flex3drive.com/flex3drive/f3d-umo/ or http://flex3drive.com/flex3drive/f3d-um2/ and we have a bit of an opening sale going on for a short time to celebrate our new website. Hope you like it and if you do please share around.

Morning people, coffee kicking in.

I have something to share with the group if i may which could be of interest to some of you. Are looking to deploy dual filament but not sure of an ideal solution, or have dual bowdens and wish for dual direct drive if it were available in a light enough form? I may have a solution for you.

I have created a dual filament version of the Flex3Drive specifically for Chimera/Cyclops hotends and am now running a pre-release program. E3D are also supporting the program by offering a discount code to those involved.

The program now has enough participants (via private invitations) to go ahead however a couple of places are still up for grabs and so I thought why not shout out in here to see if any members want to get their hands on this great piece of kit. If I fill all places, a further discount kicks in for all involved.

Below is a link to more info and a contact form should you want to dive in. If you have any questions comment or suggestions just drop them in the comments below or via the form on the linked page. It would be great to hear back from you.

Dual Flex3Drive for Cyclops. Micro starter pre-release program.

A precise integrated direct dual drive extruder compatible with Rostock Kossel XL, XY gantry/HBots/CBots and Cartesian machines.

Limited program capacity keeps targets manageable in a short lead time. Max 20 participants. Most places filled through private invitation, a couple slots left. Includes 10% discount code from the guys at E3D for the Cyclops hotend. If we hit full capacity for the program, participants get a further 10% of the extruder price. Thats dual direct drive for nearly the price of a single Flex3Drive. Bargain! Full support for mounting footprint adjustments and the usual driveline warranty for your piece of mind. Unleash your printer. For more info see the link below.
