Hello! I just got a brand new (to me) Dremel 3D Idea Builder (the 3D20). After leveling the bed for the first time, and printing out a few pretty cool stuff (the beginnings of a Daft Punk helmet), I started having issues. I use the 3D20 compatibility plugin for the Ultimaker Cura Slicer, and 3DPrinterOS.
I am running a Maker select and looking at one of the files packaged with it. I don't see a Z move to tell the printer to move up a layer. I was hoping to do an adjustment near the top of the print but cannot even see how it gets there. Does the G1 command move in the x/y plane and the G0 mean 'go up a layer' embedded in that command?
Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone can offer advice on Cura / Wasp settings when printing timberfill PLA. Here are my settings, and is a video of the result. https://streamable.com/rft67 Additionally, ColorFabb suggest: Print speed: 40-100 mm/s Flow rate to 0-10% How can I adjust these paramaters and any tips on improving my print? Thank you! Matt
Is it a pain for you to spend a lot of time for experimenting on print settings until you find the best combination? This is exactly what we experienced.
Hello, I have a Hatchbox Alpha Delta printer and I was wondering where I should start to figure out the best settings . Thanks!
what are the critical parameters for FDM 3D printing
I'm fairly new to 3D printing and recently built my first 3D printer - the D-Bot Core XY. I've been getting some fabulous prints so far and I needed some help with support settings in Slic3r. I'm using version 1.2.9 which I think is the latest version. I printed a test part with the support material and it was extremely difficult to remove it. Any recommendations on these settings?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone would have a clue why this happens. I have attached an image and The used model file. Thank you
Hello, Running 1.75mm Nylon @240c and im getting a jam every now and then somewhere, please see the pic for what it looks like. Thanks for any help
QIDI Tech-1, PLA at 205, S3D. In the circled area the material starts to build up and the second nozzle eventually catches it and knocks it over. This is a start/stop point. S3D is a constant battle on blobbing at seams. I don't know why they can't seem to get this under control.
Hi, maybe I am wrong, but I can't find the test piece in the last article about "quality of 3D printed parts". the piece in grey color, with the 3DHubs hearth , Any suggestions where to find it? (I would like to print it and compare with pics) thanks Merry Christmas!
Hi there, I recently bought a FlashForge finder to print random things I have designed in Autocad, my problem is, is I don't know how long I can safely print without damaging the stepper motors or extruder, any help and knowledge would be much appreciated. My longest print so far has been four hours, but I have one that would go up to ten hours, I just wasn't sure if it could handle that.
Hi, recently got a flsun kossel and apart from a couple issues it's. Working perfectly. One of those issues is the top and bottom layers don't seem to be joined together properly (spaces between the lines). The bottom layer is the main issues, but the top has issues as well. If anyone has some suggestions that would be great. If you need any details about settings let me know. Thanks
Is it possible to read the printer settings in a GCode file? I have a test file that came with a printer and am curious to see what settings are used.
Hi, can anyone help me figure out why the top of the model seems to be missing a few layers? There is nothing wrong with the file itself. You can see my shell thickness and other settings in the attached image from Cura. Thank you in advance!
I have 2 Replicator 2s and for some reason both are creating these gaps. The arrows in this picture show gaps/shifts in the top view. The prints are supposed to go along those fills. In other words the outlines of the parts are way off.
Hi everyone! I use Cura and have this zebra stripes on almost vertical semi round surfaces: I was playing around infill overlap. Decrease % makes print slightly smoother, but there are horizontal stripes between the layers: I use BCN3D Sigma. Any suggestions?
I was curious what print speed people are reaching, while maintaining reasonable quality, with the Robo R1+. I just got mine a week ago and am currently printing at 120mm/s with little to no quality issues. The review here on 3D Hubs indicates that this printer's print speed is 50mm/s -- I'm curious why they chose this number.
Its hot in the room I have my printer I am using fans now, would air conditioning affect the printing or am I ok to install one?
