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.
Hello, I am looking for someone to print me a 1/18th scale replica of the RV from the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Just a heads up I'm not looking to spend hundreds of dollars. Thanks for any help you all can give.

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.
Hey, I'm just wondering what everyone else is charging per cm3, I've heard 3d Hubs recommends 1 - 2 dollars per cm3 but i dont know how true that is. Or do some people charge hourly. i can print around 6cm^3 per hour, what should i be charging. I was thinking around 6$ per hour or $1/cm^3. Is this fair?
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

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!!!

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?
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.
printing quality is going worst... the infill density is kept at 75%..still the same...!!! Any solutions???

Hello everybody, I am trying to print some curved pieces with my Anet A6 and the bottom part of the piece doesn't have a good surface quality. On the photo you can see the bad quality of the piece. I am looking for tips to improve my prints (temperature, support improvement, etc) Thank you !
My filament retracts to far then hardens and jams. On every print now and I can figure out why. I would like any help that can be given.
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.
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.
