Hi Cliff,

I will get the instructions through to you today, along with a carriage. Yes lots has changed and it has been a challenge keeping up of late and getting all original info back onto the new site. So busyof late, I think I need to employ some elves.Regarding the hotend cooling fan, this does just slot into the fan holder as a snug fit, once all installed it is held securely in place and no fasteners are required to hold the fan, aside from the 2 M3x8 fan shroud bolts.

@slanwar - your item is shipping today, literally just taping up the box ready for DHL Express booking.

When will the web site be updated with instructions? I will be mounting the drive in the morning. I designed a mount for my I3 and will be testing soon. I will need some guidenline as to speed and stepping.

Received the parts today and they were printed with quality, I love the print bite and I can't wait to test the printer.

OK, I have the flex3drive installed on my printer using a ramps 1.4 board. I'm having a little issue. Retractions are loud!

Running 2 different drivers set at 1/16 (I think) for testing

A4988 (buzzing when extruding / stalling on retract - tried various vrefs between 0.2 and 1.0)
TMC2100 (nice and silent when extruding / no stalling on retract but certainly not silent / can feel vibration of my motor when retracting)

Here are my settings

Steps per unit:
  M92 X80.00 Y80.00 Z400.00 E4222.00
Maximum feedrates (units/s):
  M203 X500.00 Y500.00 Z10.00 E35.00
Maximum Acceleration (units/s2):
  M201 X500 Y500 Z1000 E50
Acceleration (units/s2): P R T
  M204 P500.00 R50.00 T500.00
Advanced: S T B X Z E
  M205 S0.00 T0.00 B20000 X5.00 Y5.00 Z0.40 E0.10

retraction at 10mm/s speed 1mm distance

Please help

Also I need to documentation on how to set this up. I think I read somewhere that the backlash needs adjusting?
