In general, is PLA or ABS better for functional prototyping?
Hey guys. So I've been trying a few different ways to create PLA filament infused with hemp fibers and, although I have had a few successful tests, nothing seems to be consistent. I am using PLA MakerBot 2x printers for testing the filament. Grinding the hemp fibers into small particles is not an issue, it is more so the actual process of making the filament where consistency becomes an issue.
For hot ends with clogged nozzles. We have designed a new style of the hot end tip for the Da Vinci1.0 Pro Printer. We are looking for ideas and comments about this Adapter.
I am currently newer to 3d printing and do not own a 3d printer. I started messing with it and found cool ideas and tweaked them. I noticed that my local library has a 3d printer that I could use to print using abs but they cant tell me the price until it is printed. Any way that I can find the weight of the objects before I print them?my first print btw

Hi i've purchased this printer and i've followed all the instruction for the set up. But when i start the classic cube ,or anything else , the printer head start to bumps on the plate. It's like search for a auto levelling sensor. anyone could help me? Tnx for your attention
I purchased this 3D printer as a DIY kit as a hobby for fun. Not having much time to mess around with it has caused me to try to sell it to somebody that will put it to good use. It was purchased for ~$240 online at 3dprintersonlinestore
I'm having a problem with some of my "sharp"corners. it seems like it is dragging previous layers to the outside? I can't find any artikel related to this problem. And i have tried pretty much everyting. (lowering acceleration. making sure al bolts are tight.) The printer is have is a Kossel XL (delta printer) i print at 190° and my bed is at 55°
Hi everyone, I am looking for a 3D printing service that can print at nano scale (like the prints shown in this article) Is there any service that has this type of printers on 3D Hubs? or does anybody know if there are companies that offer this type of printing as a service?
The problem began after I had just finished a print.
How can I print in a material that is magnetic? Want to print a small flat part that can stick to a magnet...
Hi folks Just a bit of advice for a brand new 3D printer user Bought a CR-10, assembled all OK, but the Y axis limiting switch was DOA. Doesn't click on/off, and causes all sorts of motor issues when limits don't kick in. I'm sure a replacement will be sent by Banggood...eventualy. But I don't want to wait a month just to use a brand new printer that should never have been sent without testing.
Hello, I'm completely new to 3D design/printing and getting my head around it. I purchased a Cocoon Model Maker printer which I've found is the same as the Wanhao I3 Mini. The plan is to make what I can in my workshop and have metal CNC parts made for the parts I can't reproduce.
Hi! I am working on a project where I need to get some rubber-like pieces printed to be part of the sealing system of a bottle (limited edition Olive Oil project for a client). The dimensions of this component are around 20 x 15 x 15 mm. Please let me know if you or someone that you know might be interested on this job. Thanks!
This is general enquiry - not a moaning session - but the work stream (I'm in the UK) seems to have dried up completely (at least from my perspective). I have been assured by 3D Hubs that the new business model (essentially ditching many hubs and taking forward only those that 3D Hubs consider to be viable) which has been implemented in the US has not been rolled out in the UK.
Hi, I just bought a new 3D printer. I wonder if these existing presets are signs that I purchased a used item OR could this be considered part of the company's standard courtesy set up • My Flashforge Finder play "music" instead of beep when the correct print bed height is achieved • Why was there already 3 hours on the clock when I set it up for the first time

I have been printing on my CTC without any issue. Now it is clicking the whole time and not extruding. I cleaned the gear and replaced the feeder with a spring tension version. Still same issue. Clicks the whole time and doesn't feed at all. Any ideas?? I am using ABS. I even tried preheating the nozzle first before printing just to make sure. I am using Simplify3D
Hello everyone, Has anyone had any luck printing with copperfill. I bought a recommended new nozel to avoid damaging the zortrax one. This one is the herculues all steel nozeland is holding up but I can't get the copperfill to come out properly and even when it does it just curls up almost immediately. Thanks in advance.
