Introducing Spero AutoFlex

Revolutionizing FDM Printing with Automatic Part Removal

3D printing enthusiasts and professionals alike know the challenges of manual print removal. The manual process can be time-consuming and sometimes results in damage to the printed parts or the printer itself. Enter AutoFlex by Spero 3D, a groundbreaking hardware extension designed to automate this crucial step, making the 3D printing process smoother and more efficient.

Effortless Automatic Part Removal

AutoFlex transforms the 3D printing experience by eliminating the need for manual intervention when removing printed parts. Once the printing job is complete, AutoFlex automatically clears the print bed, allowing you to start the next job immediately. This automation is a game-changer for continuous printing, significantly reducing idle times and boosting productivity.


Benefits of AutoFlex

1. Seamless Workflow

AutoFlex integrates effortlessly with your existing 3D printer, ensuring a smooth transition between print jobs. This means you can queue multiple prints without having to manually intervene, thus optimizing your workflow.

2. Time and Effort Savings

By automating the part removal process, AutoFlex saves you valuable time and effort. This allows you to focus on designing and creating rather than managing the printing process.

3. Enhanced Productivity

With AutoFlex, you can achieve continuous printing, which is especially beneficial for commercial users who need to maximize their printer's output. The device minimizes downtime and keeps your printer running efficiently.

4. Consistency and Reliability

AutoFlex ensures that each part is removed consistently and without damage, maintaining the quality of your prints. This reliability is crucial for high-volume production environments.


How AutoFlex Works

AutoFlex is designed to be user-friendly and easy to install. Compatible with popular printers like the Creality Ender 3 Pro and Artillery Sidewinder X1, it integrates with your printer's firmware to execute the necessary commands for part removal. Users can simply add the AutoFlex end script to their slicing software, and the device takes care of the rest.

For those looking to expand their 3D printing capabilities, Spero 3D is continuously working on extending compatibility to more printer models. They actively seek feedback from the community to improve and adapt AutoFlex for various setups.


Continuous Printing Made Easy

For those aiming to achieve continuous printing, combining AutoFlex with the Octoprint Continuous Printing plugin is recommended. This setup allows you to print directly from a queue, streamlining the entire printing process. Additionally, Spero 3D is developing a cloud-based management system, the Spero Cloud Box & App, which promises to offer an even more convenient and effortless 3D printing management experience.


Support and Community Involvement

Spero 3D values community feedback and involvement. By sharing your experiences and providing suggestions, you can help shape the future of 3D printing. Whether through contributing to the development of AutoFlex or supporting Spero 3D’s initiatives, your participation is invaluable.

In conclusion, AutoFlex is not just a hardware extension; it’s a revolution in the way 3D printing is managed. By automating the part removal process, it offers unmatched convenience, efficiency, and productivity. If you're looking to elevate your 3D printing experience, AutoFlex is the must-have solution.
