I have had my printer for 8 days now and gone through many issues. There is one that is not clear in the instructions and you need to know:
There are TWO white feeding tubes for the filament. I thought the second was a spare. It is NOT a spare. It goes up in the filament holder. Once you connect the tube with the threaded bushing into the printer head, then you use the tube that has no bushing up in the reel housing. Feed the new filament through this tube which sits loosely in the housing. Then feed the filament into the feeder hole as instructed. Once the filament has reached the print head, slide the loose tube up against the feeder hole and then place the reel into the housing and close the door. This has made a HUGE difference in smooth feeding of the filament for me!
Yes I know I am a bit late to the game but I am trying to get FLUX3DP to sell me an updgrade kit for my kickstarter unit that is finally unboxed and ready. I had tried to get a kit before the expiration of the program but their website was not cooperating.
What I am really wondering is , if you had to prioritize the kit, what parts seem to add the greatest improvement. I am now trying to get them to sell me the individual components
I am getting better and better at printing, finding all the tricks and skills to make it work better and better. STILL though I have adhesion issues. I have tried tape, spray, glue... some things work better for some prints and other thing work better for other kinds of prints. But still, I get a corner or two that ALWAYS curls up. It can be fine for single item printing... I can hide it or it is not too bad to worry about. But in large prints with multiple parts that need to be glued together I am having real headaches. No matter how I do it, no matter how careful I am, I end up having to putty the crap out of some gap.
So, I'm getting a little tired of getting a low-voltage jolt nearly every time I brush up against the vertical metal guide bars of the Flux... I have assumed since I got it that this was normal, but, now that I've found this group, it occurs to me that maybe it's not normal and that I should ask other owners!
Is anyone else experiencing this?
