Build MY own Arduino-controlled camera slider!

Re: Multi Material Printing Purge Blocks

The best method is when the model allows ist to use the infill to purge and prime the noozle but that is harder to implement. It is not any harder to implement at all.

I think there are a few ways to address the issues without resolving into this... but i like the idea somehow. :D 1. adjusting the spool holder to a better position/setup so that less force is required to unwind the filament 2. increase the tension on the extruder and pump more cur...

I bought 1KG worth of this high temp silicone for about 7 USD... each sleeve has about 4ml of volume. this is literally cost me close to nothing except for the time I spent modelling and iterate the designs (twice).
