Re: Ninjaflex print very stringy & holes in the models. Why?

Spoke too soon. While much improve, still having what appears to be delamination between layers issues. Thinking this is a "temperature is too high" problem. Thoughts?

Re: Ninjaflex print very stringy & holes in the models. Why?

Thanks all for the feedback. After doing some additional research and double-checking settings, the default ABS S3D profile only has infill set to 20%, which it seems is far too little. Reprinting at 85% infill has improved things significantly in addition to spacing things out and setting up sequen...

Re: The Trials and Tribulations of my first ABS prints

Awesome stuff. I keep meaning to try out glue sticks, but I got used to working with blue painters tape and so I've stuck with it.

Re: 2nd day with the M2 and having issues, Help appreciated!

Not to state what might seem obvious, but did you level the bed after getting your M2 running? Mine printed OK out of the box, but I would have adhesion issues as soon I had to print anything off-center of the platform. Picked up a gapping tool and ran through the S3D bed leveling program a bunch of...

Re: Best filament for cell phone case?

I ordered my Ninjaflex from Adafruit just because I was lazy and they had my info already. They also ship rather quickly and are in NYC which is just 2 hours north of me. They appear to also have Semiflex.

Ninjaflex print very stringy & holes in the models. Why?

So I tried out what I would call a semi-advanced ninjaflex print, and am getting mediocre results. Lots of string, and holes in parts of the models. They're basically 10 parts of a long tube. See the attached S3D render (it's currently still printing). What am I doing wrong? Here's the pertinent S3D...

Re: Unfortunately, phpBB forum search seems to suck.

In my travels, no built-in forum search seems to be able to match Google/Bing/Yahoo/etc. for crawling capabilities. I have no idea why that is. Even systems that use the Solr/Lucene for their backend search implementation don't work well. That said, if you want something that at least looks like som...

Re: Single V4 Extruder First Look.

+1 on the above 2 comments.The M2 is great out of the box. Welcome to the club, and thank you for your service! Great write up of the v4. The pictures are going to be immensely helpful when I'm triple-checking my upgrade. How's it printing so far for you? What have you put through it? Change any set...
