I am using the FT5 R2 stock at the moment but starting upgrades. This machine is for work and I really need to convert to be able to print PEEK. What up grades are nessary? What extrusion temps, bed temps are you using ? Thanks for all your help in advance.
That stuff needs to be HOOOOOOOOT.
You would need a special extruder, special thermister/sensor and custom firmware.
400c hotend, and 120c bed temps, all metal hotend, titanium heatbreak, hardened nozzle, type K thermocouple, duet wifi and thermocouple i/f boards, 1kw 110v/220v ac bed, 40amp SSR, and a mortgage to buy it all lol
Thanks for all the input.
If you pulled a number off the top of your head. Any idea what this would cost ball park?
If you can afford $80 for a 200gr. roll of peek, money isn't a concern.
But I would say $150-250 as you would also need to change extruder setup to E3D. I think you need a daughter board to run the thermal couple.
