Print Settings

Printer:

FLUX Delta+

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2 mm

Infill:

20%


Notes:

More printing settings :

  1. I used Cura 2 slicer to print them
  2. layer 1 temperature is 200°C for PLA
  3. printing temperature is 190°C for PLA
  4. but 210°C all the time when printing " FLUX_spool_holder_bar "
  5. infill with concentric circles when printing light masks for transparent filament

Here's some tips to print them :

  1. Recommended to print every parts in default direction to make them look good.
  2. Print " FLUX_spool_holder_bar " very slowly, set printing speed to 5~10 mm/s, and brim is not needed.
  3. Sometimes the balls in " FLUX_spool_holder_bearing_x2 " don't stick to printing surface well, print this file one more time, then you can get more balls to replace those which looked bad.
  4. Turn off " skirt ", " brim " and " raft " while printing " FLUX_spool_holder_base ", if FLUX Studio still shows oversize notice with this setting, try to switch slicer from Cura 2 to Cura or Slic3r.

About the embedded light :

I used a 100mm " angel eyes " LED to make it, and connected it to the 24V DC power supply in extension port of FLUX Delta+, if you want to make one, read the article below ↓

http://dev.flux3dp.com/tutorials/toolhead_control.html#understanding-the-extension-port

It's also suitable with a common USB LED light, you can just put it above the embedded light mask and plug into the USB port at basement of FLUX Delta+, but hanging a wire at the side of machine doesn't look beautiful lol.

When I load the base into Flux Studio it complains of being too big. What am I missing?

OH, I forgot to tell you to turn off " skirt ", " brim " and " raft " first lol, if it still doesn't work with this setting, then you can try to switch the slicer to others.

Hello! Some users reported the same problem, I haven't found the reason yet, but switching the slicer software from Cura 2 to others like Cura or Slic3r ... etc, makes it work, thank you for reporting :)

That seemed to do the trick. I was able to print it this time. Took two attempts as during the first one, one of the legs didn't bond well and ended up leaning to the outside and fell out of alignment as the arch closed.

Few more questions:

1) What 'Angel Eyes' LCD did you use? Do you have a source for it?
2) Where did you get the connector to plug into the expansion port on the Flux Delta?
3) Where did you get the on/off switch?
3) Are you just using a sponge on the 'cleaner'? Do you put anything on the sponge, or is it just dry to 'wipe' the PLA as it passed through?

I've printed everything but the lens(es) in carbon fiber and it's looking pretty slick. Looking forward to the finished solution.
