To build and fit an E3D aerostruder hotend to one, or both of the Lulzbot Minis. The Aerostruder setup will allow printing with flexible filaments as well as rigid.

Progress

  • 3D printed parts created
  • Brass inserts applied
  • Extruder motor mounted
  • Extruder assembly mounted
  • Limit switch mounted
  • wiring harness finished
  • Electrical testing
  • Fitting and alignments, change slicing profiles or E-Steps setting in Marlin firmware if necessary

Issues

When doing long extrudes (manually pressing the extrude button with more than 50mm extruded), it has a habit of grinding the filament, which does not occur during regular printing. The cause of this is not yet determined.

To Do

  • Octoprint / Cura slicing profile for Ninjaflex
