Last Saturday we had a stall at the Brighton Mini Maker Faire. We brought our two 3D printers and some sample ‘printies’ to show the possibilities of 3D printing, and the different filaments that are avaliable right now.
We recently got our hands on some flexible filament samples, kindly provided to us by the guys at FormFutura. One commonly encountered problem with these filaments is their tendency to bend, buckle and loop between the extruder’s hobbed bolt and the top of the hotend. Enter the FlexyStruder, an extruder made by LulzBot to deal specifically with flexible filaments.
