Hi all, I'm trying to extend the sides (edges) of this scarab down to the "floor" if you can imagine it resting flat. Coming from an engineering CAD background, I'm unsure how to do this with what I have and could use a suggestion - I'm currently working in Meshmixer, but I'm used to using Solidworks.
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.

Hi folks, would a PETG be the best material for a cookie cutter - from the food safety perspective? Thanks!

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.
I'm looking to swamp one of my Wooden Creator nozzles for a .2mm one and I'm wondering if these will work? Anyone have any experience with this?
Hello Everyone! I am currently using a Lulzbot Taz5 as my primary printer, and have had great results so far. I would like to make a couple of mods to the machine to produce finer details, and have some questions about whether or not the mods I'm thinking of are possible. I print with ABS, and PLA, have flirted with Bronzefill but ran into many problems.
Hi, Doesn anyone have used the following printer : http://www.impresora3dalia.com/en/3d-printers-ready-for-use/lion3d ? It's from the Leon3d brand : https://www.leon-3d.es/ I've the possibility to buy one for ~half the price as it's the end of stock. From what I can read in the specs it seems good but I'm not an expert.
Hey, I would like to learn the basic of G-code programming language, in order to have a deeper understanding of how the 3D Printers are working. I know that there are a lot of programs that are able to generate the G-Code automatically but, in any case, it's something that I would like to learn.
