The Colorado-based business announced today in a press release that it will launch the Flexystruder v2 Tool Head for its LulzBot Mini desktop 3D printer, and will also release an updated version of the Flexystruder for the LolzBot TAZ. Users of either tool head will be supported by the addition of a new tool head configuration wizard for Aleph Objects’ Cura LulzBot Edition v17 software.
The LolzBot v2 Flexstruder Tool Heads have thicker extruder bodies and a wider nozzle than the first version, and feature a 16-pin connector for improved hardware installation. Also, each head features hot ends that can heat up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
“After being wowed by the quality of NinjaFlex filament, we introduced the LulzBot Flexystruder to gauge customer interest in flexible materials,” said Harris Kenny, VP of marketing at Aleph Objects. “With growing demand over the last year and a half, we collaborated with the community to improve the design and are proud that the new Flexystruder v2 makes 3D printing with flexible materials easier than ever.”
Aleph Objects is now offering the Cura LulzBot Edition v17 software update for free at LulzBot.com/Cura.
