Just purchased this machine, which I though was an Anet A8, The auto leveller does not seem to work on the aluminium heated bed but if I put a piece of aluminium cooking foil under it the sensor lights up. Don't understand the myriad of confusing advice given on the internet. Neither does my son who is an IT Technician, albeit not in 3D printers. I don't understand why it would read one but not
veryone just letting everyone know that the monthly 3D printing meetup here in Edmonton Alberta (YEG) is tonight thursday march 23rd starting at 6:30 pm downtown at the startup Edmonton building (301, 10359 - 104 Street) No events tonight at Rogers place to theres free parking along any street after 6 pm (1800)
Hello! This is a solution that I'd like to share with you all as it may come in useful sometime, I call it the "Paper Raft", it certainly worked out for me after I had some adhesion issues with a particular model that didn't have much of a surface area and also required a lot of support material, "The Ultracortex EEG Headset".
How to make a nice aluminum etching at home or in a small workshop. Full guidance from Endurance. We are often asked the same question, and whether it is possible to make an engraving with a laser L-Cheapo on metal, such as aluminum. Is it even possible to make engraving on metal in the home? Today, we will answer this question.
Hi Hubs & 3D printing enthusiasts!
Hi Everyone, Today we’re excited to launch our Definitive Guide to 3D Printing, a place on 3D Hubs to take you through the how, what and why of 3D Printing! The reason we put this together was to offer an informative but simple route through the complex world of 3D printing.
Algix isn’t your everyday filament producer, they produce some very interested filaments, Alga, Dura, OMNI, and the most basic, APLA. Now a nice thing about their entire line is that you can use most of these filaments on a PLA base printer, a printer without a heated bed / chamber and one with a low heat ability.
3d printers are quite dumb as far as electronics go in the sense that there is a lot going on during a print which is assumed by the electronics. 99% of the time the electronics are assuming incorrectly. If you want better prints, tune your printer to your filament.
Settings:Nozzle Temperature: 215cBed Temperature: 55cPrint Speed: 52mm/sLayer thickness: 3 wallsInfill: 30% I oringally printed these skulls with one goal in mind, to sand, polish, and seal and to be a fancy paper weight on my desk. This explains the infill and the wall thickness.

I have spent the past 2 weeks playing with Filamentive exotic Carbon Fiber and Woodfil filaments and I wanted to share my results on here. I want to talk about their Carbon Fiber filament because I have had a few questions on some of the prints I have posted on social media, more specially the CF skull that I polished.
A while back I got a Proto Pasta polishing kit to review and finally got around to not only reviewing it but showing how well it can work! I highly recommend just having the polishing paper kit as you can get some amazing finishes with JUST the paper. In the future I am going to work on reviewing the polishing compound included. Polishing kits overview Polishing paper "how to"
I wrote this simple 'how to' guide on how to use your single extruder 3D printer to print in multiple materials, like a dual extrusion machine. https://3dprinterchat.com/2016/03/how-to-print-in-multiple-materials-wit...

I made a quick video with Formlabs Engineer Caitlin Reyda on how to make an easy UV cure box. Hope this gives you some ideas! Also make sure to subscribe to the Formlabs Underground channel for more videos. Jory
Kylo Ren modeling tutorial using Autodesk Maya. I've prepared it for 3D printing using Makeprintable which prepares an Obj or Stl file for 3D printing. It ensured that my first print was successful. I've printed on a flash forge FDM printer and then colored in the mask using a marker
Hi guys, So many times I'm looking for a good tutorial or any other help, I'm not perfect yet in my 3d adventure but I'm trying hehe :) Got myself a Zmorph and there is stuff that helps with the printer a lot: https://zmorph3d.com/tutorials/ - especially the scanner and CNC Pro :) by the way they have just published this:
