Wow!  I am new and I don't have all the terminology down yet but I am going to try.  I recently bought the Qidi and for the first month it worked great, but all of a sudden the left nozzle has stopped keeping the filiment hot.  It brings it up to temp, but as soon as it starts to print it begins to cool down.  I sit there and watch it as it does this.  What is going on?  I tried searching through
Are there modifications I can make to the Wanhao i3 (such as replacing the extruder/hot end) to allow printing with 3mm filaments? Can anyone give specific 3mm components they know to run reliably with the Wanhao i3 please?   p.s. This is because I have a large amount of unused 3mm filament I would like to make use of.
Hi! For my graduation project I am looking for a special 3D printer. For the production of a large installation I especially need a wide x and y axis. Anything from 1 meter x 1 meter is interesting to me. In height I am only printing a few millimeters. I already found a Big Rep in the Netherlands, and 10XL. But they mostly have no time available on their machines.
I have a Monoprice Maker select v2 and I am trying to set it up, but I got to step 14, which is: loosen the nut at each corner of the baseplate until it is almost touching the nozzle. Do the same at each corner. That worked for the bottom left corner, but no matter how much I tighten both right corners, the nozzle still scrapes the plate when I move it to those corners.
hi, my stuff that printed out looks like this, can anybody figured it out what's wrong with my settings?   Settings: layer thickness:0.200mm, extrusion width:0.375mm, filament flow:100%, print speed:30mm/s, retraction amount:2mm, retraction speed:6mm/s, minimal travel before retraction:1mm, retraction z-hop 0.150mm, temp. 205degree, heated bed off printer: M3D pro slicer:M3D material: PLA
