Felix 3.0 Upgrade

Post by thefly »

Dear Guillaume,

When will the upgrade to 3.0 appear in the shop / when will the STL for the dual extruder appear in the download section?

It would cool to start printing these parts for people who would like to have these printed.

Please dont forget your existing users ......

With kind regards

Johan

I am wondering how much he is going to ask for a bit of plastic????? I had to repair my new main board myself because he did not answer my email and now he is not releasing the STLs and there are no upgrade kits available!

He is forgetting his existing users who made the felix popular!

I would say,
just wait a little bit and I'm sure that there will be upgrade kits available soon.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, didn't they had issues ro fulfill the pre orders of Felix 3.0 because of lack of injection molded parts.
As soon as theire stock is filled the will provide us with parts.

Its bugging me!

Maybe because I have 1200 euros or so invested in waiting for a printer kit to be shipped... you at least have something you can work with, I have nothing at all until the full set of parts is available and can be delivered. I'm just sayin'... :-)

With the updates and spare parts i bought and burned out main board i have spend more then 2000 all ready!
I am just saying i would be fair if the plastic parts needed for this upgrade would have been available for 2.0 owners or at least let us pre order as well now we will be on the bottom of the order list!

I'm really satisfied with my 2.0 right now.
Just want to upgrade because of the higher temperature withstand the injection molded parts do have.
I do not see much more benefit for the 3.0 upgrade for me!

I already pre ordered an E3D Kraken hotend and will not upgrade to the Felix dual head (see other posts why some people will do that)

In future if available I may change the electronic board to enable 4 nozzle printing.
