I am fairly new to 3d printing and I tried some southtech clear filament for the first time and I've had some problems with it and can't seem to figure out what is wrong (assumably with my settings). I am experiencing really stringy prints. The middle infill is alright but the walls arent turning out at all.
Okay let me start out with my origin of any error at all. I have a flash forge creator pro 2016 model which worked perfectly up until my buddy did the microswiss hot end upgrade so we could attempt hotter temp filaments. After completing the swap I got the ugly tool head 1 error. I replaced the thermistor and heater tube and put back together. No longer have a tool head 1 error, so far so good
FOR SALE!! Makerbot MightyBoard Rev H for the Replicator 2/2xThis board has been fully tested as working, drop in replacement. Note: I have been getting some questions on these, if you have a Rev G board you CAN swap with a Rev H board, HOWEVER, the difference is the power connector. The Rev G board has a female socket and the plug is a male, on the Rev H the socket is the male and the power ada

I have a problem with the first layer not adhering to the bed correctly. I typically use a brim, and it almost never lays down correctly. I thought it was a moisture problem with my filament, but I just cracked open a new roll and I'm still having the same issue. Unless I print a really large print, I can't get it to stick. I've releveled many times.
Hello. I have anet a8 I had purchased and assembled at the start of the week and i had received some printing problems but most of them have been resolved. All round the printer is good except for a few errors When i was printing the stl file linked in the thread, I got these small gaps in the print as you can see, I am curious as to what can cause this.

I have been trying to change filament mid print with no success. I am using Cura 3.2.1 and using the "stop at height" plug in. The printer will stop, i use the menu to unload filament, load filament, and resume. Upon resuming, the printer goes through the motions as if it was printing, but it doesn't actually extrude any filament. Any help would be appreciated.
I was messing around with setting extruder height, etc. and started printing a fairly complex little test. I decided to let it print while I snoozed on the couch. Awoke in a couple of hours with a JAM. What I thought was a serious extruder jam. After cursing (quite creatively) and shaking my fist at the heavens, I found it.
Anybody ever tried those? i can get the common test crisp and sharp but not the antenna's, i have tried with max cooling and tried different retract lenghts but no luck i can do a benchy and marvin just fine
Hello, nice to meet you all, I am new on this forum. I bought a creatbot D600 last week, and I have a really hard time to make it work properly. I humbly require your help to resolve this mystery. -The problem : As I do with every new printer I get, I try to print the 3Dbenchy , in PLA, with a 1.75 mm filament, and a 0.4 mm nozzle.
I've spent considerable time in Fusion 360 working with the scanned model of my own head. I'm happy that the model is the correct scale. When I export to STL and then open in QidiPrint it doesn't use the same scaling in fact the scale is nothing like the scale in Fusion 360. Why is this? Is there anyway to use the same scaling of the object in Fusion 360 thats exported to the STL ?

Hi forum, I recently purchased and assembled an AnyCubic Prusa 3D printer. Assembling went quite good until powering the printer up. The display backlight turned on, two rows get visible (1st and 3rd) and after a few seconds they dissapear and nothing will follow. I tried to adjust the contrast but this didn´t help.
