I just picked up a roll of Translucent Filament off of Amazon to play with and as soon as I did my first print I realized that this is gonna be cool but complicated to work with. Looking for some experienced users and what their favourite infill, settings, etc. are when using translucent filament.
My first print (Night Fury Coin) looked neat but it was hard to see the surface details as it was distracted by seeing the infill pattern through the surface layer.
So what are your tips & tricks when working with this stuff?
Hi, so I'm trying to print with a flexible filament similar to Ninjaflex or Filaflex, using the 3D printer Hephestos Prusa i3. I have put a tensor at the filament entrance and a part to avoid the filament to get stuck between the gears.
I'm using low printing speed (10-20 mm/s), no retraction (retract speed 1 mm/s) and a temperature of 225 °C, I don't load the filament but I put it in directly before printing. However, the material is not even coming out from the nozzle during the printing and when I pull it out the end of the filament that was in the extruder has a helicoidal shape (see photo attached).
I have no clue about what's going on, do you have any advise?
