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.

I'm designing parts that are going to be printed with ABS. I'm using Fusion 360 and it's static stress simulation on my ABS parts. It seems that the physical properties of predefined ABS in fusion 360 is not correct(I guess). Could someone confirm if these properties are correct and/or point me to some resource so I can find out the correct properties of ABS filaments?

Hi, I just bought a new 3D printer. I wonder if these existing presets are signs that I purchased a used item OR could this be considered part of the company's standard courtesy set up • My Flashforge Finder play "music" instead of beep when the correct print bed height is achieved • Why was there already 3 hours on the clock when I set it up for the first time

Hi. I have some massive issues with my CR-10s4 printer.Initially it worked perfect, but suddenly all my print gets extremely porous. I have tried to factory reset everything and slice the print from another computer to ensure it was not my slider settings.   All prints starts fine, but gets more and more porous as higher the print is.
