Re: Printing with eSun flexible

What nozzle are you using? I use a 0.50mm SS nozzle for all flexibles. I have tried smaller diameter nozzles, but always had issues with them.
I also use an extruder temperature on the high-end of what the filament manufacturer recommends. It might produce some stringing, but flows much better.

Re: M2 Essential Tool Kit?

I use the torch and brush frequently, but I do change between filaments a lot! (Often times oddball filaments, too.)

A brass-bristled brush and short piece of piano wire.
Also, a torch.

Re: PETG your favorite brand?

Be aware that ABS, PLA, and PETG have not just differing strengths, but also differing densities, (more than 10% difference). That will definitely play a role in choosing the best material for making flying equipment.

I have had good luck with MakerGeeks PETG, and you cannot beat the price. https://www.makergeeks.com/collections/petg-filament

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

Store your nylon in a plastic bucket with a desiccant. Even better, feed directly from the bucket using a John Gest fitting and tubing to get the filament to the printer.

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

I have not used ePA, but I print several other nylons, all at about 265C. Have you tried a higher temperature?

Re: Filament Drive Tension Slipping?

Those teeth marks look pretty thin to me. I think your tension screw needs to be tightened.
