10 materials you can 3D Print with at home

Posted by Shafiq Bashir on

 

3D printing has grown from an industrial technology that was the domain of million dollar companies to a desktop technology that we can use in the comforts of our home and office. Together, there has been a lot of advances in materials engineering. Traditionally, desktop 3D printing was restricted to ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) but now there are more than 12 different types of materials you can use and explore at home.

3D Printing with Ninjaflex - Adhesion issues

Posted by Shafiq Bashir on

In the previous write-up, we shared some solutions to getting NinjaFlex extruding reliably from the hot-end of a 3D printer.  In this write-up, we share some must-do tips to get NinjaFlex sticking to the print bed.  According to Fenner Drives, NinjaFlex can stick to a variety of build platforms including acrylic, aluminium and glass but we have found that best adhesion is achieved with Kapton tape. Kapton tape rubbed down with nail polish remover to remove any residual dirt and oil works very well with Ninjaflex.  More than with any other filament, it is also very important that the build platform...

3D Printing with Ninjaflex - Extruder issues.

Posted by Shafiq Bashir on

Ninjaflex or any type of flexible filament needs a little bit of tender loving care in order to get it working on your 3D printer.  There are two main problems to look at. The first is extrusion and the second is getting the extruded material to stick to the print bed.  Direct extrusion drives work much better than bowden tube extrusion mechanisms for 3D printing with Ninjaflex. Due to the distance between the stepper motor and extruder head, bowden tube extruders are not ideal. At the same time, with reduced speeds, many makers have had luck with NinjaFlex and bowden...
