Find the best answers to your 3D printing questions

I purchased a FlashForge Creator pro a week ago and it initially worked well (for about 6 prints). It now only prints the first 3 layers or so and then becomes clogged, or the filament will wined itself around the stepper motor. I have been printing with PLA and a range of tempters  (195 - 215 C) and have the same problem all the time.
Discounted brand new filament in different colors for sale! We have a 3D printing service business and we had a need for many colors last year. Now, we are mainly printing in basic colors and want to offload some of our inventory. We bought these, never opened, ABS & PLA 1KG spools and they are brand new. Selling at $13/spool. **Normal price is $22-25 per roll!!**
I have had my Qidi Tech X-One foe 1.5 yrs. Awesome printer, but the other day it started doing something wrong. After temps have been reached the hotend should do a wipe on the front edge of the print bed, but now it goes straight to the center of the bed as it is extruding filament. Also the hotend doesn't reach the bed so it just extruds in mid air.
Made for the movie Assembly Required - check out the trailer here: http://kck.st/2La7WL6  The intricate armour was the biggest challenge, built up in many layers using masks
Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know how we've been using 3D HUBS in a movie project, Assembly Required. It's an indie comedy drama that will speak to you if you have a passion for creation, particularly if you've played board games. As such, the movie involves a lot of miniature sculptures, and recently I've been working in ZBrush and getting these 3D printed in resin.
Hi... I'm fairly new to 3D printing and have bought  TL4076 Mini 3D printer. I am having MEGA troubles and hope that someone can help me.   My bed is NOT heated and it is 90mmX90mm Square. I am not getting a perfect first layer. Please keep in mind I am only 13. The first layer does not stick to ANYTHING. even heat. I am so confused on what to do. I can send pics if need be.   Bailey.
Wanhao Di3 / Sunlu Orange PETG
Hi everybody,    I think I could really use your experts help :-D   i'm printing on a Wanhao Duplicator i3 and slicing with Cura. Until now I was using PLA and was getting mostly clean results. I decided to switch to PETG for more resistance, but i'm completely struggling to get good results.    I tried to print this test : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:704409

The original hotend on my select mini is starting to give me problems so I figured it's time to upgrade. Several people have told me I might want to upgrade to an all metal hotend because of efficiency reasons. Sounds good to me, but I was wondering if anybody can tell me if there are any on the market that are a direct replacement for the select mini V2.
