Felix 3.1 Upgrade

Post by seaton »

I just received announcement for new version of the Felix, while an upgrade kit is available in the store I could not find anything regarding what the new improvements are and what the differences are between the versions.

Can someone please describe what the differences are between v3 and new version?

Thanks

I found some information on it here:

Easy one-time print bed calibration

The calibration part of the print bed has been redesigned and improved in a way that the print bed only needs to be calibrated once now. The clever designed part always keeps the print bed leveled after the first calibration.

Improved filament intake

The upgrade contains a new Extruder Insert part, made from a stronger material which results in improved durability. The redesigned frame parts allow for easier calibration of the print bed. All improvements in the upgrade kit together result in a higher level of durability and increased stiffness of the extruder frame, resulting in higher accuracy when printing.

Stiffer extruder design

The redesigned extruder frame increases the stiffness of the extruder, resulting in even higher quality prints. The stiffness is required to prevent the extruder to vibrate when moving. Vibration may cause unwanted errors in the printed object.

Only for Dual: hot-ends calibration

The new extruder frame part allows for easy calibration of the individual hot-ends. With an Allen key (Hex key) (size 2.5) the right hot-end can be perfectly positioned to exactly line up with the left hot-end. The new frame part also allows the right hot-end to be stowed away to prevent the right hot-end from colliding with printed parts when printing in single head mode.
