The Itty Bitty Fitty Fitty (50/50) is a double/duel extruder based on Clough42's Itty Bitty Double FLEX V2 Extruder, modified to print in both 1.75mm AND 2.85mm (3mm) filliment.
IMPORTANT: This part replaces the "Double Flex Block" on the original Double FLEX V2 Extruder. You will need to download all the other parts from Clough42s page, and gather all of the hardware mentioned on it. You will also need to follow all his original instructions.
UPDATE: i noticed the original upload was a flawed version where both sides were some how the same filament size. I have uploaded a fixed version, and removed the original.
I apologize to any one who tried to print the flawed version.
UPDATE 2: After playing around with this, i learned Slic3r dosnt support assigning different filament sizes to different extruders. This makes it so only one extruder is useable at a time. Other software my be different. Maybe some one with coding experience, could create a custom edition with the right settings, I dunno.
IMPORTANT - Follow Clough42s Instructions as much as possible.
NOTE: Split the object in Slic3r to separate the 2 halves for double/duel color prints.
NOTE 2: My first version was oriented parallel to the X axis, which caused ALOT of bleed over of the colors. I recommend printing oriented parallel to the Y axis if printing with a Itty bitty extruder. Or print whatever is 90 degrees perpendicular to the extruder placement if using duel/double nozzels. This should reduce color bleed over from a leaky extruder.
NOTE 3: I have successfully printed the object in 2 colors, but have not tried printing with it yet as i do not have 1.75mm filament yet. but it should work just as good as the original sense its made from it.
I had trouble with my printers original extruder, so i bought Clough42s Double FLEX V2 Extruder ( 3mm) from his ebay page. I have been printing with it ever sense. I recently decided i wanted to be able to print BOTH 3mm, and 1.75mm. So i modified the original so it can print both, one on each side. It didnt take much to make it happen in Slic3r.
- rotated Both the 3mm, and 1.75mm Universal blocks by -60degress ( I did not like where it cut when rotated +60degrees, but it should work if you make your own)
cut it in the middle (70.8mm) its not perfectly centered, but its close enough.
placed 2 matching halves together ( unmatched halves dont line up properly)
exported as STL file.
- Printed by an original Double FLEX V2 Extruder (3mm) that was printed by Clough42 himself.
