FROM THE INVENTOR OF NINJAFLEX........

Flexible filament retrofit kit for i3-style printers. Print with flexible materials, higher resolution, and fewer failures. Also prints ABS and PLA better than your stock extruder.

*Does not include stepper motor.

 

 

 

Quick Setup / Operation:

Step 1: Before initially loading filament, loosen the set screw that contacts the cam surface of the dial.  Set the dial to position 1.  Tighten the set screw until the drive roller makes contact with the idler roller.  Do not heavily torque the set screw, just tighten it using the shank of the allen wrench.

Step 2: Rotate the dial to position 4. (Confirm that the dial rotates between 1 and 4 without binding.  If it binds, loosen the set screw a small amount.)  At this point, you’re ready to load a filament and print.  Use position 1 for very soft materials (Like Jellyfish or Ninjaflex), position 2 for moderately soft materials (like SemiFlex), position 3 for moderately hard materials (like ABS), and position 4 for very hard materials (like filled PLA).  Set the correct dial location before loading filament.

Step 3: Load filament. With the dial at the correct setting and the extruder at the correct temperature, run your printer’s normal filament load cycle while you gently push the filament into the entrance liner.

Step 4: Prepare to print.  Do your normal print setup routine (build platform prep, acetone clean, application of bonding agent, preheat, etc).  Everyone has their own depending on their printer and the seriousness of their OCD.    (See our printing tips section for some useful tricks and methods).
