Suggestion about the button noted :)

Well, this is more about filament settings for the helloBEEprusa, and it's a good idea. Sort of similar, but seems to be going on a specific path.

Best regards

PLA
Layer height: 0.2mm
Printing temperature: 210ºC
Bed temperature: 50ºC
Print speed: 30mm/s
Retraction speed: 45mm/s
Retraction distance: 4.5mm
Flow: 90%
Cool minimal layer time: 5s
Accel: 500

Remember that this are just standard settings, it may need some adjustments depending of the brand and the type.

Cheers,

Hi Andre,

What's this flexible? I was trying FPE (Flex-PolyEster) from http://www.plastic2print.com/eu/temp-name-14102.html this weekend but only got very thin lines that didn't join up to form a solid.

I have to spend more time tweaking the settings, not sure yet how to tell it to just extrude more material. My attempts largely failed to achieve that.

Also on the topic of other materials anyone tried changing the nozzle to a a larger size (maybe 0.8) to extrude taulman's t-glase with better optically clear results?

I'm not sure if it would work and if it would be best to keep swapping the nozzle (maybe risk damaging the threads or to buy a whole extruder block with the nozzle. Does beeverycreative sell spare parts or can I find this same extruder block easily on Ebay?

Cheers
