I'm seriously looking at adding a CR-10S to my printers, but I'm torn between the 300mm version and the 400mm.  The 300mm is bigger than my current options, but the 400mm might offer much more versatility.  My main concern about the 400mm version (apart from the £150 extra cost) is the power required to heat the bed when perhaps only a relatively small model is being printed.  As I understand it,
I have two QIDI Tech 2 machines.  The newest model will not lowwer platform after cancelling a print?  The first one always lowers platform after cancel.   They have the same versions of sailfish v7.8 but have different AtMega 2560 dates.  I am afraid to try the update.cbd of the firmware since my first amchine works fine.   Any help on this or updates.   Joe
Shell and top and bottom not solid.
Attached are some photos that i am having issues with. I have printed the test print that came on the printers SD card with success, looked awesome, but this test was pre-sliced. I have since downloaded Cura and have had issues. Every print i do looks as if the bottom, top, and shell are not printing right. You can see right through the pieces.

a board very much like the Anet A8 board
I've been fiddling with this for a couple of days now, and I'm at my wit's end.   I'm trying to upload Marlin onto the controller board of my CTC i3 Pro B. It's a cheap Chinese printer. As far as I can tell, it uses the same board as the Anet A8 (I will attach some pictures of the board). I've been referencing this tutorial on youtube to accomplish this:   ;t=563s  
Hello there,    I've just start to deal with a zcorp 310 3D printer, and the problem that I have is changing the printing settings: the software lets me change just the type of the powder and the layer thickness. is there any possibility to change the powder settings also, or some other parameters like the roll speed, binder saturation, curing time, etc?  
At about a depth of 10-15mm my platform stops moving down and the print head usually gets jammed and print fails.  The leveling operation works smoothly all the way up and down.  When prints start the platform moves up smoothly.  When I cancel the print after the fail, the platform moves down smoothly.  Any suggestions on what to check or do to troubleshoot would be appreciated.  
Hello all! I've just purchased an Anet a6 and I really want to upgrade some things. First I want to upgrade by getting 2 Noctua 40mm 12v fans. Second I would like to upgrade the stock PSU to an extra modular ATX I've had that's just sitting around from an old PC build I've had (I need help with all the wiring). Third I want to get a "glass sheet" preferably 3mm to place on top of the hotbed.
