Upgrade Felixprinter 1.5 to FELIX Tec 4.1

Post by TyRGeN »

Hi all,

I still have a Felixprinter 1 which has been upgraded to 1.5 but ended in a box because of a dead stepper driver.
Today i'd like to upgrade it instead of throwing it away but i can't find the price of the stepper motor set (which are smaller)

Can somebody help and tell me how much do they costs ?

Best regards,
Stéphane

Hi Stéphane,

The seperate stepper drivers are not sold anymore by us. But basically any stepper driver which is compatible an arduino ramps control board should work.

Also what stepper motor set do you mean exactly?

Kind regards,

Guillaume

Hi Guillaume,

Thank you very much for your answer, sorry i remained silent as i moved over until i could work on it.

I had to get and test other stepper drivers and found out several other issues in my printer.
Thanks to Xmas i have time and money to buy all the necessary and almost repaired it but still.

- the wheel driving the filament is sliding so the filament isn't flowing steadily
- and the 3d printed part maintaining the X axis strap is broken in half.

I'll check in the forum archive if the users improvements could help me to make the filament mecanism tighter and try to find the STL file for the broken piece.

I hope i'll save it.

Best regards,
Stéphane
