printing quality is going worst... the infill density is kept at 75%..still the same...!!! Any solutions???
Hi all, I'm trying to extend the sides (edges) of this scarab down to the "floor" if you can imagine it resting flat. Coming from an engineering CAD background, I'm unsure how to do this with what I have and could use a suggestion - I'm currently working in Meshmixer, but I'm used to using Solidworks.
In my country, 3d printer after tax +vat +vendor profit are expensive. I want 3d printer for my hobby such as tools, figure, toy and parts for my diy. And I think PLA and ABS are main filament to print. I'm interesting 2 models 1) wanhao duplicator 6 ==> 910 usd pro - spare parted is common - have built in frame (can diy acrylic cover) - rigidity - there are representative sell in country.
I just got a new 3D printer and did everything to set it up. I've been trying to print a model that is about 3.5 inches tall and every time I print, it fails. I watched it closely today and basically when its printing what is supposed to be flat, its not, its ends up raising up and then when the extruder swings back to it, it grabs what was already printed.
Hiya all - New to the Forum, and about 6 months in 3D printing, but a Maker from Waaaaay back... :) Sorry slightly long post here...Thanks in advanced.
Hi there, Can you please recommend me which material would be able to resolve 120microns through holes (4 holes in a 5mmx5mm square)? I have 120-micron wires that I need to pass through these printed holes. thanks in advance.
Hi guys I would to install marlin fw on my anet a2 LCD 2004 offered for Build size 220 x 220 x 220 mm I tried and the result that on the lcd I see only squares… Someone has the config files to put in Arduino for marlin? Ps do you have the stock FW? thanks
today after taking out the sd card to load with print i tried to insert it again to the printer but the click mechanism stopped working which means the slot mutters the sd out as its not clicking to make it sit inside but everything else works about the sd card, it still reads it if i push the sd card witrh my finger inside but if i want to print now i need to keep it in with my finger the whole p
Hi I am not new to 3d printing. In layers with mare than one 'island' the small 'islands'shrink. See picture. Does anyone have a logical explanation to this? The rest of the object is near to perfection. Thanks
So i had to get new belts for my A8, i ordered the rubber belts from amazon the ones everyone else gets. But with the belts they sent me a new set of stepper motor pulleys/gears. I replaced my old pulleys and put on the new ones as well as my belts.
Can you help? I have a 27 year-old cooker extractor hood from NEFF. The plastic, translucent light cover is cracked and I can't get a replacement. I thought that 3D printing might offer a solution. I live in Leicestershire and could bring the component to you and collect upon completion within 50 mile radius. Do you think a solution like this is viable/cost effective? Photo of component is avai
I have had my Flashforge Finder printer for about 2 months and it printed everything fine until a few days ago. It started printing everything about 2mm above the bed. I have tried re leveling the bed, re calibrating the extruder, uninstalling and reinstalling Flashprint and nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
My monoprice select mini v2 is printing off the bed. I've already tried trouble shooting this and nothing has worked. I think the limit switch is placed too far away from the bed so the bed goes farther than it's supposed to. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!
Hi there, I recently purchased and built the tronxy x1 3d printer. Unfortunately, my z axis has a problem. Whenever I try to home my z axis, the motor makes a loud sound and slowly moves down. Also when it moves down I have to poke the metal shroud around the threaded rod to get it to go down. Also whenever I try to print something, my z axis can't go up =( PLEASE HELP ME!!!
Hello, I am trying to get an object scanned and I remembered that there was an option to select 3d scanning as a service while searching for hubs nearby. Unfortunately I am unable to find that or figure out how to get to that option again. Is there a way to bring that option back up or if someone can direct me to it?
Hey guys, I am wondering if there is anything we can use to calculate pricing like 3D Hubs does. I am looking for something were I can upload files and have it calculate volume of .stl file and multiply it by the price I set for various infills. Is there anything like this? Let me know. Thanks.
Hi, I am trying to connect My ctc bizer running the latest Sailfish to Astroprint, i have changed the baud rate to 115200 and profile to x3g but it just trys to connect for ages and times out. Has anyone else come across this issue and have a way to fix it? I use astroprint with my other 2 machines both of which have seperate Raspberry pi's of their own running it.
Hello, my name is Joe Eckert and I'm the Operations Director at a small nonprofit called Access Independence that works with people with any type of disability. In response to repeated cuts to State and Federal funds, two years ago we started a 3D services program where all revenue goes to support our disability services.
First, pardon me for bad English. My A8 is restarting when it is preheating, so in order to test I disconnected the cable from the bed and put in the options the temper at 30 ° (if I try otherwise it will restart). It seems that there is no power passing (I tested directly on the board) that is a defect in the board?
Hello everyone. I have an issue with my printer. As you can see from the pictures, the infill is not touching the perimeter everywhere. Could you please let me know what can I do? I am using the Simplifiy 3D slicer. You can see in the photos that on the first layer everything is really smooth. But the end layer isn't. And is irregularly touching the perimeter.
