  1. Connect peripherals to the Pro 2 Touch, webcam and ethernet (LAN) If you have the pro 2 touch, you have the option to connect peripherals to the printer via USB. The touchscreen is basically a Linux PC, where you can connect several USB peripherals to. These are the things known to work via a USB hub or directly to the USB connection of the touchscreen. ...
  2. Clean hot-end, unclog hot-end The following methods can be used to unclog the hot-endA clogged hot-end can most of the times be cleaned. There are several methods to do so. The six most common methods are explained below. Method 1. Overheated extrusion – No disassembly needed• Heat up the hot-end to 210 ᴼC for PLA or ...
  3. Manually Turn Off Filament Detection (Pro Series) If for some reason the filament detection seems to fail (or in your situation it is not required or wanted), you can disable it manually via the manual control panel in FELIXbuilder. You basically send some gcode commands directly to the printer in the send command textbox.This is the ...
  4. How To Print Flexible Filament. Our 3d printers can in general handle flexible filaments. Depending on the amount of flexibility, you might need to take some extra precautions to print it well. These are general tips which should work. Make sure there is no obstruction present. It is essential that the filament does ...
  5. Adjust The Filament Clamping Mechanism (Pro Series) The filament clamping mechanism consists of a spring that pushes an arm with a toothed wheel against the extruder driving wheel. The mechanism has an adjustable range in which it can clamp.The clamping force itself cannot really be adjusted.The clamping wheel is toothed to be able to detect if ...
  6. Lower Minimum Extrusion Temperature For safety reasons the minimum extrusion temperature for printing is set at 150 degC. In certain situation this value is too high. To change this value please take the following steps. Go to the download section www.felixprinters.com/downloads and navigate to the firmware of ...
  7. How To Pause A Print Via Gcode In some cases it can be convenient to add a pause in the gcode of the print-file. For instance to manually add something to the print, like an insert or continue with a different color at a certain layer. To do that you can use the following commands. M600 , this start the filament change ...
  8. Decrease Homing Temperature Of Z-Axis The z-axis homing requires an increased temperature 120 degC for the TEC 4, which causes a delay in some occassions. This is done to prevent damage to print surface in case there is some small blob of filament under the nozzle. For the Pro series this is at 185 degC, to ensure optimal probing ...
