Not yet. But you can use the attached firmware and change the E steps with M92 xxx.

The motor direction is wrong. When you change the filament the length between the feeder and hotend is wrong. And there are more hard coded settings that needed tweaking. I also virtually halved the E mircosteps. This is needed to increase the e-speed.

The hex file is the firmware needed for the flex3drive. The settings are for the flex3drive and for a 200 step extruder motor. I will change this to a 400 step extruder motor (The one currently on the UM2) when I have tested it. You can program the hex file with cura

All the needed parts are in the flex3drive kit (http://mutley3d.com/Flex3Drive/) Only the 5mm shaft needs to be longer and you do not need the printed parts from mutley.

- The bowden is used as filament guide. - The robot print is filaflex. It is impossible to use with an ultimaker and difficult to use on most printers. This was my first print with filaflex. (http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?1,269018,269018) I did not tune the settings for filaflex. It had around 20% over extrusion and the printing temperature was probably to high.

The power of the flex3drive is very high. I need to lower the motor power to protect the hotend. I have done many prints with it, But still needs to do some tuning. I need to fine tune the flow rate and retraction. The print quality is at least comparable with the bowden setup. With the flex3drive it is possible to print with flexible filament (filaflex is very flexible). This is a new design and only tested by me. It probably needs some improvements. The motor mount is missing. I had no time designing it.
