So i recently purchased a large 3d printer, it is a Tronxy 5xs 40 and it has two z motors and one x and one y. With the controls, and while messing with it, all motors seem to move in the correct directions, However, when i click auto home, and this is on a Marlin, it goes the opposite direction on the Y axis. HOWEVER, flipping the wires, belts and anything else does nothing.
Some printers (such as the Flashforge finder) can be bought from the manufactures site, however, the shipping costs $60. I was wondering if their is any site that is a go to for buying 3d printers. Thank you in advance,
I've been printing for around a year now, so i have some knowledge but not 100% on everything. I'm currently using a Flashforge Creator Pro but at the moment I'm having trouble with a specific print for work. I have attached pictures so you can see my issues.
I am fairly new to 3d printing and I tried some southtech clear filament for the first time and I've had some problems with it and can't seem to figure out what is wrong (assumably with my settings). I am experiencing really stringy prints. The middle infill is alright but the walls arent turning out at all.
Hello, as seen/heard in the linked video two times. The extruder on my Zortrax M200 v4 has a thumping noise when in operation. I upgraded the hotend to all metal Micro Swiss upgrade and I'm having print quality troubles as well as clear stringy unmelted filament when removing material. Need help, this printer was great until this upgrade! https://photos.app.goo.gl/drIYa0EcCHEsqL6W2
Hello all this is my first time i tried 3d printing. I tried designing a car but the 3d printer gave me some problems( may be my design as well).So the problem is that only the solid bottom half of the car prints.The rest of the car does not get printed (this part is like a hollow pipe.This problem happened twice in a row
i need to figure out what materials would be best used for a coffee maker prototype and for high temperature, precision, and would make it aesthetically pleasing. Any ideas?
Hello chaps, Could anyone advise me which low cost (up to £500) DLP printer is better to start with. I just want to play around DLP technology without spending huge amount on of money. Main candidates are: 1. Wanhao D7 (without control box) Build volume 120mm* 68mm *200mm Price £425 (ebay) 2. Anycubic Photon (touchscreen) Build volume 115mm *65mm *155mm Price £420 (ebay)
Hi folks, would a PETG be the best material for a cookie cutter - from the food safety perspective? Thanks!
i'm having v3 printer problems. I can't even get as far as calibrating. i'm running it on windows 10, get as far as the command countdown but then I lose connection. Any ideas?
hey guys, I have a question. My dad wants to print things for him in clear resin, but wants to try the Nobel 1.0 and the form 2. Which do you think is better for clear resin at 50 microns. he will end up buying the best one and put it in my apartment. Thanks in advance
So I have a new problem with my wanhao i3. Once in a while it does this: ;feature=youtu.be I don't understand why it does that, it seems there is nothing wrong with my end stop. In the next video I'm moving the bed with my hand, and it doesnt look like there is anything that is preventing the end stop for working: ;feature=youtu.be
I am having problems with my printer out of the box. I have it set up and when i have all the axis return the their normal positions the Y will go all the way to the back and sounds like it tries to continue to go back and skips for about 10 seconds. I have not been able to print either.
I been having under extruction problems with my CTC printer so I though was the extruder problem, what I did was remove some parts and installed parts from a MK10 extruder, still same problem, what else could be wrong?
I will start by saying long time fan of 3D printing - First time getting the chance to print one! My question is related to a very large print need - A campus 10-12 buildings, roadways - low level of detail (one color is fine). Second print will be more detailed, 2 buildings, 2-3 colors.
Hi everyone. I'm looking for a second 3d printer and wanted to know what you would advise. The most important criterias for me are : - a quite large print volume (20x20x20 cm or 8 x 8 x 8 " or more) - not a kit - Preference for an "enclosed" one (like witbox,...)
Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, so sorry in advance if this is in the wrong place! So, onto the question. I want to get my first 3D printer, and with my small budget, I've narrowed down the contenders to two different printers. Both were chosen because they're cheap, and either I've bought from the company before or they're in Canada.
Does anyone on here know of a solid resource for rules/regs on getting printer equipment through customs in the UAE? How have people done it? Is it very difficult?
I'm looking for the best 3D printer available for under $400 for home use. I know there are a lot of Prusa i3's available out there with varying options...but are those the best choice? I know that's a very small price window, but hey...this is a personal machine and I'm broke. I expect that if everything with the cheap machine goes well, I'll be able to upgrade next year to a better machine.
