Adapted 3D Printers

Spero Autoflex is at the forefront of innovation, offering an automatic removal extension tailored for FDM 3D printers. Through meticulous development and rigorous testing, we've successfully integrated Spero Autoflex with select 3D printer models:

  • Creality Ender 3 Pro
  • Artilliery Sidewinder X1

As part of our innovation movement, we invite you to contribute to expanding Spero Autoflex's compatibility to a wider range of 3D printers. By adapting Spero Autoflex for your specific printer model and sharing your insights, you play an active role in driving innovation forward.

Compatible Firmware

Spero Autoflex is a hardware extension that operates independently of the 3D printer's firmware. As long as you can add a dismantling code to the end of the G-code, Autoflex is compatible with any FDM 3D printer, regardless of the firmware used.

Integrated Software

Spero Autoflex can be used with the following methods:

Adding Dismantle Code to the "End gcode" Section During Slicing:

  • Simply insert the dismantle code into the "End gcode" section of your slicer settings. This ensures the print bed is prepared correctly after each print job.

Using OctoPrint with the Continuous Print Plugin:

  • Spero Autoflex is compatible with OctoPrint, a powerful 3D printer management tool. By installing the Continuous Print plugin, you can automate the dismantling process seamlessly. See details here.

Spero Cloud Application (Coming Soon):

  • We are developing the Spero Cloud Application, which will provide enhanced functionality and remote management capabilities for your 3D printing workflow. Stay tuned for updates!


Supported Materials

Fundamentally, Spero Autoflex Printing Plate composed of Kapton Tape covered spring steel. So,when using a Kapton-covered print bed in 3D printing, the following types of filaments are known to stick well and be properly utilized:

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene):

  • ABS is a popular filament for Kapton tape-covered print beds. Kapton tape provides excellent adhesion for ABS, helping to minimize warping, which is common with this filament due to its high printing temperature.

PLA (Polylactic Acid):

  • While PLA is generally more forgiving and adheres to a variety of surfaces, Kapton tape can provide a smooth and consistent print surface for PLA. However, it may not be as necessary as with ABS since PLA typically adheres well to other surfaces like glass or blue painter's tape.

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-Modified):

  • PETG also adheres well to Kapton tape, providing a good balance between adhesion and ease of print removal. It's important to ensure the bed is clean to maintain good adhesion and prevent prints from warping.

Tips for Using Kapton Tape with These Filaments:

Bed Temperature: Make sure to set the correct bed temperature for the filament you are using:

  • ABS: Typically around 100-110°C.
  • PLA: Typically around 60-70°C.
  • PETG: Typically around 70-90°C.
