Upgrade Felix 2.0 to Felix 3.0 (home edition).

Only had to move the sensor Z axis, because the engine 48 mm in length, even if it is 40 mm, to transfer the sensor still have. The direction of rotation is reversed in the firmware. Change the number of steps on the mm for extruder, because the gear on the shaft of the engine are not original and was made to individual drawing it a little more. Clip plastic double type 2 extruders, lever-type. Single fan for cooling extruders and cooling models. Fan shroud directs the air directly under the nozzle. It gives immediate effect of hardening plastic and reduces smudges plastic with unused nozzle.
For upgrade you need: 2nd extruder, 2nd engine, 2nd gear on the shaft, thermistor, heater, and a few nuts and bolts. STL files you can get on request on e-mail 333zero777@mail.ru

Amazing quality, almost no oozing deposits. What retraction parameters did you use? And did you use a high skirt to help wiping off material that is oozing from the currently inactive extruder?
Seems like Slic3r is currently the best slicer for printing with dual extrusion. Have to give it a try.

Everything is easier. I just made the cut, but he did not meet all the quality parameters which were needed. I wrote the beginning of G-code so that 2 nozzle drove plastic, and the nozzle, which is not involved in print first, draws plastic on 15 mm. Then I found in the code when you switch nozzles, and prescribed extrusion plastic 13 mm 13 because over time, the plastic is melted in time in the extruder. In the firmware is at change of the extruder the retract 15 mm Still need to pay attention to the temperature, each plastic his temperature. This should be taken into account. Now if you all have taken into account, will this result. Good luck to all of you guys. I believe in you.

Yellow model - this is the basic model for double-Bowden of the extruder. She has not met expectations. It was therefore decided to move the engines on the cradle as at Felix 3.0. I just didn't take it and use it as a pipeline for the thread. You explain that you specifically need. The pipeline itself is made of polyamide tubes 4*2.5. I just printed the clamps to her. You tell us what you need and specify the mail, I'll send)))

Your results look amazing! Would you mind to share the g-gode and where did you find it?

Cheers

I threw himself, then he corrected the error. But he was not perfect, there were significant errors on the change of extruders. Now I did G-code bumper ifon 5. Now it turned out great))) no plastic lies on ageing, have not used it and it is a lot of moisture absorbed.

G-code change extruders for good print 2 colors. The retract should be equal to 10 mm If less, it will be runny not working nozzle.
