The original hotend on my select mini is starting to give me problems so I figured it's time to upgrade. Several people have told me I might want to upgrade to an all metal hotend because of efficiency reasons. Sounds good to me, but I was wondering if anybody can tell me if there are any on the market that are a direct replacement for the select mini V2.
I'm new to the 3D printing community. I've completed a couple of prints, but none have been 100% perfect. Most recent is this t-rex model I'm trying to print. The issue seems to be the bottom layers aren't smooth. They are rough like there is extra material. I'm using a MP Select Mini v 2 and slicing my model with Cura 3.0. The bed is level. I'm using Hatchbox PLA filament.
so i have a flashforge finder, during a print the filament stopped coming out of the extruder, it continue to move, but the filament was not coming out, when i unloaded and reloaded the filament it would come out of the extruder, (tho it takes a bit more than force to get it to come out than before) the filament comes out, but when i would start a print job it would come out, it would when i would
FlashForge Creator Pro 2015 Model I searched the forum before posting but came back empty. So I upgraded my left extruder to the Micro Swiss all metal hot end (MK10) now I'm wondering if anyone in this forum with the same printer has successfully printed PC+PBT filament on their printer and is willing to share their experience with all of us. 
I'm looking for advice on my first 3D printer that I'll be using for hobby engineering-related dev: abs and exotics/composites. The budget is between $1500 and $3000 USD. Is there a model I'm missing from my list (below) that I should look at?   I've read tons of reviews on here and other sites, here is what I'm hoping for: - reliable part sticking to platform
(I apologize for misspellings, english is my second language)   I found a box with some 3dprinter parts in it, my dad told me that, he had bought the parts, many years ago, but forgot everything about it, long story short, he have lost interest, so now it's to me, to build it, but there is a problem, i dont know anything about 3dprinter and definitely not anything about how to build them.  
Hello,    I'll start off by saying that I've spent hours trying to figure this out. I bought a new melzi board off ebay, because I had an issue with the previous one for my Mendel Prusa i2. So once it came, I got an Arduino Nano and followed various instructions on how to install firmware onto the Melzi board via the Arduino programmed as an ISP.    The Basic steps are:
