I just reicieved my Photon today from amazon. This is my first DLP/Resin printer but i own several FDM printers (about 7 years experience). I have a sinking feeling mine may be defective. The build plat form does not slide all the way on the arm. See attached photo. Iy s about 1/8" short of being flush wen inserted as far as I can make it go...
hello. new to the 3d printing game here. I purchased an anycubic i3 mega about three months ago. I have printed several designs without any issues. today my printer is not printing.
I bought an Anycubic i3 Mega about 10 months ago, and I haven't got it running, yet! It took a while to get Anycubic's attention, but now they seem to have beefed up their support staffing, and they are genuinely trying to help, I think.
My anycubic won't see the test files. It sees the directories fine, but can't see the files to print.
Just unboxed and assembled this printer. I have tried autoleveling, and followed the instructions. 1) The Cura software that came with the printer would not installed. So I downloaded the latest version. 2) Autolevel looks like it worked. Was able to adjust the head by setting a new offset (-15.90)
hello, I recently have been having an issue the temp reading on my machine is fluctuating like crazy. It will jump up immediately upon startup and give a reading from 210-220 degrees C. I have made sure all connections to the hotbed are good, I checked the wiring everything looks good. The bed heater does not work because of the faulty reading. Any suggestions on what could be the problem?
I just received the parts for my Anycubic i3 that malfunctioned the first day. Part of what snapped was the metal that threads into the extruder. the Bowden clip and the little metal toothed washer were also damaged. So I would like some help with, how do I reassemble it? I know to screw the metal holder into the extruder. What is the next step? Does the washer go on before or around the clip.
I just bought my first printer, the any-cubic kossle (pulley version) and im having a lot of problems leveling the bed/ nozzle. ive read the manual and it says to "tighten the screws at the top of the 3 carages (that holds the belts and travels up and down the 3 rods) to make the nozzle closer to the bed and loosen to raise it from the bed". ive done that but to no avail.
Any filament that I insert into the hot end and try to extrude just ends up be coming deformed and essentially clogs the hotend. I only have used PLA filament, and I have tried changing the nozzle. I took apart the entire hotend and saw no blockages of anything kind that obstructed the filament from passing through the hotend.
Hi All, I just got this printer last week and am just taking the leap into 3d printing. I'm experiencing an issue where the left Z axis lowers during print and tries to go past the Z end stop, causing the belt to jump and the extruder to plunge into the bed. I've replaced the Z end stop, still crashes. "Home All" leveling works fine. I've gone through all bed leveling procedures.
Hi, I'm currently using a FDM printer - Tevo Tarantula, it is open enclosure, in a regular room with a window open with a small breeze. I work especially with ABS, PETG and TPU. I recently thought about switching to a SLA/DLP printer like Anycubic Photon or Wanhao D7, those are relatively cheap and seem to work well, BUT, WHAT ABOUT THE RESINS?
I got an anycubic delta plus printer. About 1 in 3 times when i print a model for a couple of hours, the output gets a weird offset in the middle. In the attached photos the offset gets in after about 9 hours of printing. Someone know what is it? Looks like a stepper failure for me, but how can i know?
hi all,I have a problem to upgrade my printer, i would like to extend or change the cable of extruder, but i don't find the correct connector 14Pin (2x7) and 6pin (2x3) (see the image enclosed) could you help me.... do you know the name of these connectors?
I've been struggling with getting my Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus to touch the build plate when printing. I looked into new firmware and tried using the newest firmware I could find and now it's even worse. I can't use the auto-leveling feature anymore, it disappeared from the list of options after I updated the firmware. I'm afraid I may have rendered my printer totally useless.
Hi all, looking to to get a printer primarily for printing tabletop miniatures. I know the moai is a bit higher in detail, but from what I can understand the Photon can print more miniatures in the same time due to the way the layers cure. Through a little research I’ve also found that Peopoly resins are more available and cost less. What are your guys thoughts on the machines?
I've had the AnyCubic Photon for a few days now and have done a few prints and have gotten comfortable with the AnyCubic slicer. The Photon is a new low cost resin printer that sells for around $530 USD shipped - depending on where you purchase it.
My prints have horizontal, I can't seem to find anything on the internet as of a proper name for this issue but I attached examples. The lines seem to happen at a constant rate that scales up and down with the size of the print. What causes this and what can I do to solve it? Printer: Anycubic Kossel Slicer: Cura 15.04 Material: Black, PLA 1.75MM Print speed: 20mm/s Fan: Full speed, 255
I have jsut started 3d printing and am using an anycubic i3 mega. I printed my first part last night and it worked great, today I am trying to print this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1134277 I am printing at .1mm 1.2 shell thickness, 10% infill, print speed 60, print temp 204, bed 60 The rest of the setting are in one of the attached images from the manual.
Following instructions per Anycubic's manual, driver installation went fine up to the Pronterface attempt to send G28 code. This resulted in what appears to be stepper motors grinding and no movement. I have checked driver installation and Arduino IDE uploaded correct firmware successfully. Any help? Have included video on what is happening.
