Re: difficulties ... very first print to get work !

Hi artohautala !

I have similar working system as you have in Tampere - Finland. If you still have problems and not live very far maybe we could do some cross checking between computers and printers. If interested mail to viljmak52@gmail.com.

Re: Hotend jams - not blocked

I have used PTFE inserts for few months now and with that Felix extruders works well. Used it for printing ABS, PVA and PA, few hundreds hours totally . Not any jams after I installed PTFE parts. In my opinion PTFE insert is a must, without that it's not possible work efficiently with Felix extruder...

Re: Hotend jams - not blocked

The PTFE part is tricky but possible to make if you have use of small lathe (and some tools). dia. 6 mm solid PTFE bar is good to start at and easily available. Description of work steps needed is quite long story but if somebody is interested I'll write how managed to make parts that works well.

Re: Dual extruder settings for PLA + PVA anyone?

KISS beta versions will come here. In one message on that page is the latest (beta) version. Numbering seems to be little confusing. For Felix profile copy *.ini files from older version directory to directory you have the newest version. Fortunately ini-files have not changed between versions. http...

Re: Dual extruder settings for PLA + PVA anyone?

I prefer Prime Pillar before wall. Pillar selection is on the "Support" page. Latest versions of KISS (picture from 1.5 beta 1.14) there is possible to set the size of pillar on "Inflate Raft/Prime Cap" it's good to have pillar diameter little bigger than distance between nozzles. Prime pillar posit...

Re: Hotend jams - not blocked

Hi, My solution: I drilled the coldend completely through with 4mm. Drilled the PEEK with 5mm. So the cold- and hotend has a defined stop and a distance of 2,5mm. Machined a Teflon tube like saamec did, but with 4mm tube and 5mm spacer. Now after hours of printing I´m sure to post this as my workin...

Re: Felix 2.0 Printer Reliability?

Also had the same problem, even when parts were new. If retrack was longer than 2-3mm filament jammed quite often. Nylon was especially difficult. Melted, little thicker part of filament stuck on PEEK. Decided to make PTFE insert on PEEK and aluminium part as discussed on these pages. Not long exper...

Re: Hot end fell out

Check the thermistor before you install new PEEK. Might be broken and temperature was much more than 195 deg.

Re: Dual printer problems

I had to replace also two separate nut with solid bar to avoid nuts rotating inside plastic parts. 2x6.5x40 bar with 2 pieces M4 thread in 32 mm distance. Possible to fix extruders tighter and also helps to keep plastic parts better together. Felix should already make like this, two separate nut is ...

Re: Dual printer problems

Can't see anything from picture, it's so small. Check also material quantity, might be there is too much material coming and printing is high for another nozzle. KISSlicer Pro works best for me (PA+PVA). Possible to backtrack not used filament on extruder change, cool down not used extruder and clea...
