Find the best answers to your 3D printing questions

I have recently purchased a TronXY X5S.  The build went fine, but now what?  There isn't a manual to speak of.  How do I load the filament? What temperature does the bed need to be?  What temperature does the nozzle need to be?  How do I zero the print nozzle.  Why won't it recognize the Obj. file on the "microscopic" SD card.
G'day Makers   I have an error that keeps coming up on one of the Guider IIS machines we have in the office. It has been happening for a while on certain files. It doesn't seem to do anything to the print until today when I came in and the print was paused but didn't return to the home position and was sitting where it finished off all heated up with the error "io session has timed out, GetURL"  
Hi, I'm VERY new to this and don't understand a lot of the tech-speak I see in here, trying to learn. What I am experiencing is that the back right leveling screw is ALL the way tightened, and the bed is still to high (hitting the extruder and jamming on the first layer.) So I think I need to lower the default height somehow and was wondering if I can do this without taking the whole thing apart?
Filament gets stuck in the pulling mechanism and curls underneath
Hello,   I recently bought a Maker Select V2, and oftentimes I see that my filament gets stuck inside the pulling mechanism and it curls underneath it (see attached picture). Can you help me figure out how to fix this? I am currently running @ 50mm/s (first 2 layers at 25 mm/s) and with a 195C nozzle / 55C bed temperatures. The filament I am using is a Dikale filament I bought on Amazon.  
I have the Qidi X-one2 & use Hatchbox PLA 1.75mm filament. When printing with the default settings, my prints often have lines or indentions streaked across where the nozzle leaves a line to head over to another area. I tried to alter the settings & enable retraction/z-hop among a few other tweaks & I get lots of stringing. With default settings, I had no ccleanup, but lines...
As the title states I am a heck of time getting my Flsun delta printer to level out. When I first bought the printer it worked well for several months, except that it was loud. So I recently upgraded the motherboard (from a Gen_L to a Gen 1.4) and TMC2130s for controllers. In the process I also had to upgrade the firmware and I haven't been able to get it working since.  
When printer starts the priming line it goes about 2 inches before it starts extruding. From there it does the same basic thing when starting the skirt line. After that, everything prints fine. No setting in S3D that I  have manipulated seems to make a difference. Wondering if anyone else has had this issue.   Thanks
