IMPORTANT FEATURE REQUEST!!! Flexible Filament

Post by Scott427 » Mon Dec 22, 2014 6:26 pm

My UP plus is unable to print a decent product using FLEXIBLE FILAMENT(NinjaFlex).
After some time testing the filament I can conclude the printer is just to FAST.

Could you add a speed and temperature option so flexible filament can be used.
After figuring out what speed and temp. are ideal, I could get back to you so you can make FLEXIBLE FILAMENT A CHECKBOX.

I hope to hear soon from you guys.

Try printing in 'Fine' mode - that makes the printer move more slowly.
Enjoy!

Yes, Print Ninjaflex in fine mode, I print at 260 degrees. However I found I also needed to mod my printer to add a small feeder assist at the extruder, explained elsewhere on this forum.

Else if the job is simple and quick just use fingers to help filament into the feeder, with light pressure 1

cheers and Happy New Year
