The filament extruding from my extruder+ on our Makerbot mini is very thin. Why might this be?I have cleared filament traces from within the extruder and the filament is makerbots own PLA.
Hi all, I'm trying to print a case (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:978335) on a Makerbot Replicator 2, but the printer just prints the first layer and then seems to fail for some reason. I ran the .stl's through the newest version of Makerbot Print, with Support and Bridge Support enabled. I then printed the .x3g via SD Card on the printer.
I have an R2X with a HPB, but it is either: Heating unevenly "Cold Spots" on the silicone heating pad, perhaps? Warped
I've been trying to make something on my Makerbot Gen 5 and there's sunken in letters face down on it, but when it prints it turns out like in the picture (It's supposed to say TSI) It's been put on 100% infil and balanced settings on the Makerbot Print program.
I have a Makerbot Replicator 1 Dual that has never worked that great and I have spent the last 6 years messing with it. My print seems to fail around the 30 minute mark and the drive gear just spins on the filament leaving a notch so it no longer moves. I've used new nosles and upgraded to the spring loaded drive block. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53125 I recently noticed that while clea
I've been asked by a local elementary school to have a look at their Replicator 2. It seems that when powered, the up/down/left/right buttons don't function. I've tried cleaning the contacts and as well as shorting them with a paperclip, but only the "M" will operate. This makes doing routine functions difficult.
Every time I print the print head goes to the back right corner of the replicator build plate and calibrates where the hole in the plate is. Is there a part that I'm missing, I've only had the printer for a couple of weeks. Using that spot it obviously goes to low and won't print properly
I have a 25t female spline at the bottom of an 80mm diameter plate see attached STL. The top of the spline is filled with a hole in the middle. The spline detail is filled with plastic when printed. The hole detail at the top is there. It does not seem to be support material. It is very solid like regular print material.
Hi, I am very new to 3D printing and I'm on an incredibly steep learning curve. The problem: Using MakerBot Replicator 2X. Been doing fine until I changed spools. First school boy error is i didn't know there was different spools. I swapped from ABS to PLA (didn't change settings) caused loads of issues including clogging the heads.
I own a Makerbot Replicator Plus and when printing large flat parts or even flat parts the warping is atrocious near the edges, some of my prints have warped almost an inch off of the plate. I've tried pretty much everything, table on the build plate, adhesives on the plate, etc. Nothing is working and as far as I know the Replicator Plus does not have a heated plate yet. Any ideas?
Hi. I'd like to print a small part. Reference : SWS-0623 part. It's a shoulder washer. What are the best print settings i can print this part in.
Clumsy me, while taking top off Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation, not knowing what I was doing, I pulled off the connector to J3 on the Hoboken Rev F 2013 PCB. Anyone know how to repair this? Why? The belt came loose and I was trying to figure out how to get access to the belt to put it back on....thought I needed the top off.....figured out how to tension the belt.
Hi, I just got my replicator+, ran my first part. Now I'm wondering what tips you have for finishing the parts to smooth appearance or improve integrity? Thabks
have a gen 5 with Smart Extruder Plus and newest issue is it decides to unload filament during a project. Anyone have idea how to fix?
Hello everyone on the 3D hubs forum. I'm reaching out to see if anyone knows the fix to solve this MakerBot Z18 problem. Problem:
I can load,unload filament and extrude properly but extrusion stop just after printing purging line. Levelled build plate many times. Increase temperature to 240. Still problems continue. I noticed motor didn't rotate during printing. is it possible motor don't work during printing only. Please suggest
