Hi, I'm a beginner in operating the 3d printer. How can I solve this problem? Thx.
I can’t retract it or pull it out. There’s absolutely no give on it. It won’t budge. Typically I’d pull out the tube from the bottom end, and try pulling the filament on that end. But I’ve encountered another problem. I can’t get the tube out of that end. i need some tips on how to get this out of here. I’m scared I’m gonna break something.
I'm Wondering what is causing these issues. I'm using an i3 clone (made of acrylic) with a genuine e3d hotend. Bed: 55°c Nozzle: 210°c. Using Repitier Host with Marlin firmware. I upped the feed rate but that didn't seem to help. Please help!!
I purchased and built my printer about 3 months ago. It works great except for 1 thing. I cannot print anything that you would consider a miniature, like for D&D or Warhammer (28mm people). It prints everything else in very good quality. I have tried many setting changes in Cura 3.2.1 including: Layer height (.2, .1, .08 and .12 as a multiple of my nozzle size) Wall thickness
Recently, I've had prints start to warp and peel off the raft. Not sure what's changed here. I'm printing PLA at 215C. Any ideas??
Hi guys, My name is Vim and I am currently designing a 3D Printer Air Filter Unit that can moderate its fan speed according to the filament being used. I was wondering if anyone happens to know of any air quality sensors that are sensitive to the smell of the melting plastic (mostly ABS or PLA)? Many thanks Guys! Vim
Hi guys, I was hoping the 3D Printing community would be able to help me with a design project I am undertaking at Bournemouth University in the UK. (I am designing an air filter unit for FDM 3D Printers). Please could you simply answer the below questions:
I have been trying to print out Mosfet mounting brackets, the frame prints out OK but when it comes to printing the standoff's the printer seems to stop extruding. The first time it happened I thought it may have been a problem with the extruder motor or gear, I removed the fan and checked the operation of the extruder and it was working properly.
Which is the best glue to attach PLA to Wood?
Hi All, I have been 3D printing for quite some time now and have accumulated about 3 Home Depot buckets worth of PLA plastic and am looking for someone to recycle it. If you have a filament extruder let me know or if you know of a way let me know as well. Jacob
Something seems off. I'm getting very noticeable filament lines in my prints. Some parts of this model look a lot better than others as you can see. I have tried adjusting my temperature (195 Extruder, 60 Bed), speed, height (0.1), the works. I'm stumped. Has anyone had this issue before? I'm using a Monoprice select mini printer and Hatchbox PLA 1.75 filament. Please help me if you can.
Hello, i have a probkem with my reprap and i can't print because of it. My PLA filament is curling inside the hotend and not comming out from the nozzle. It is very hard to push it like it is not hot enough. I am extruding at 230 and nothing comes out. Can the filament be ABS not PLA. On the package it says PLA.
Hello, Panospace One has only been in the market for a short while and we are interested in see what you think about it?We will send out a few samples for testing. Please write your contact information in the comments below or contact us directly.
I just bought an ATOM 2.5EX Printer, this is my 2nd printer but 1st one with dual extrusion. i have some Nylon+CF filament that i want to use. but for support, i had this idea, since Nylon is resistant to Acetone (from Googling and my long time ago engineering degree) >>https://www.calpaclab.com/nylon-chemical-compatibility-chart/
I'm printing some parts on my Flashforge Creator Pro 2016 and keep seeing this weird banding issue around any walls that have holes in them. It also seems to happen when the outline of an object changes, where detail either sticks out further or cuts inward. It only lasts from the bottom of the hole to the top, and stretches almost all the way around the part. See photos below.
Hi all, I`m doing a project where I am attempting to 3D print large objects with a relatively simple geometry at high speeds. The idea is that the printed geometry will act as a mold for a final product and the objects I want to create will be about 0.2x0.2x1m (and preferably up to 1,5-2m in a later stage).
I am trying to figure out if a 3D printer is in my budget. I am looking at the Drumel printer from Canadian Tire, but I noticed the filament costs $50 (also from Canadian Tire). How many "things" can you make with 1 roll of filament? How long does 1 roll last? Any help is greatly appreciated!
