First Print of Flexion

My Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer has been under extruding and I needed a way to print flexible filaments. I looked into many solutions like the Flexion Single Extruder, Bondtech QR Universal Extruder and the E3D Extruder Upgrades. I read articles and watched YouTube videos reviewing each. In the end I decided to go with the Flexion based on price and ease of installation.

Flex3Drive Review

In this article I will be reviewing the Flex3Drive extruder system custom fitted for the Tevo Black Widow. DISCLAIMER – To be 100% honest I purchased the Flex3Drive on my own, and was going to do the design work myself and get it working on my Tevo Black Widow. Flex3Drive was gracious enough to work […]

University of Sheffield researchers trial efficient diode lasers for high speed 3D printing https://3dprinterchat.com/researchers-trial-diode-lasers-3d-printing/ https://3dprinterchat.com/researchers-trial-diode-lasers-3d-printing/#comments Tue, 28 Mar 2017 09:58:14 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=15624 Originally this post University of Sheffield researchers trial efficient diode lasers for high speed 3D printing appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

The way many sectors are 3D printing can be better thanks to a new additive manufacturing process that uses energy-efficient diode lasers. University of Sheffield researchers in the UK are working on a new 3D printing technique. Known as Diode Area Melting (DAM), this process is described as a “faster and more energy-efficient alternative to […]

Unfortunately this issue happens more than we could expect, especially with a low quality extruder / filament and also on some special filaments as wood and metallic. So we will approach from two fronts, how to prevent it to happen, and how to save a print if it happens. How to prevent clogging in 3d […]
