Calibrating Flexion Extruder on FFCP Printer

Tue Jun 20, 2017 10:22 am

Hi all,

I have a few Flash Forge Creator Pro printers and they are all dialed in and working great printing PLA. I installed a Flexion extruder onto one of them yesterday as an upgrade and so far all my prints have been coming out stringy and fall apart easy, as if the layers aren't sticking together well enough I guess. Before the upgrade I was printing at 205/210C temp with extrusion multiplier set at 1 and it was coming out fine.

Anyone install one of these Flexion extruders and could help me out?

If you install a new extruder, you will probably need to re-calibrate the extrusion multiplier a bit

You probably need to go back through the install instructions carefully. There are some steps that must be done exactly as instructed.

One of the main things though is adjusting the tension on the "cam" correctly then using the right setting for the filament being used.

Once everything is setup correctly then running your calibration cubes will help get the extrusion multiplier dialed in.
