I just got a new 3D printer and did everything to set it up. I've been trying to print a model that is about 3.5 inches tall and every time I print, it fails. I watched it closely today and basically when its printing what is supposed to be flat, its not, its ends up raising up and then when the extruder swings back to it, it grabs what was already printed.
I have been printing on my CTC without any issue. Now it is clicking the whole time and not extruding. I cleaned the gear and replaced the feeder with a spring tension version. Still same issue. Clicks the whole time and doesn't feed at all. Any ideas?? I am using ABS. I even tried preheating the nozzle first before printing just to make sure. I am using Simplify3D
Hi guys! I would like to know, if it is possible to print a full sized plastic mannequin and how much will it cost? Best regards
I have had my Flashforge Finder printer for about 2 months and it printed everything fine until a few days ago. It started printing everything about 2mm above the bed. I have tried re leveling the bed, re calibrating the extruder, uninstalling and reinstalling Flashprint and nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
Hello! I am trying to print a part that is essentially a thin tube with a slot in it. The tube has about 0.025" thick walls on it and I am printing PLA. The issue that I am having is the edges of the slot come out jagged, as seen in the attached photo. I'm printing at 60 mm/s and have tried extruder temps of 200C, 210C, and 220C. I've also tried layer thicknesses of .2 mm and .1 mm.
Hello, I am considering the Up Box+ and Raise3D N2+. 1. How noisy is the Up Box+? Can people sleeping next door in the same apartment or my neighbor hear it if it prints in quiet evenings?
Hi folks Just a bit of advice for a brand new 3D printer user Bought a CR-10, assembled all OK, but the Y axis limiting switch was DOA. Doesn't click on/off, and causes all sorts of motor issues when limits don't kick in. I'm sure a replacement will be sent by Banggood...eventualy. But I don't want to wait a month just to use a brand new printer that should never have been sent without testing.
In general, is PLA or ABS better for functional prototyping?
Good morning, I have been using the schools Makerbot Replicator Mini in my classroom using PLA and recently prints have started shifting on their own. I checked the pulleys and they appear to be tight. I have attached a picture to further my aid....Any possible suggestions?
I am currently newer to 3d printing and do not own a 3d printer. I started messing with it and found cool ideas and tweaked them. I noticed that my local library has a 3d printer that I could use to print using abs but they cant tell me the price until it is printed. Any way that I can find the weight of the objects before I print them?my first print btw
I recently replaced the extruder on my Replicator+. Decided to go with the Experimental Extruder so I could try out some different nozzle types and filaments.
Hello, I'm completely new to 3D design/printing and getting my head around it. I purchased a Cocoon Model Maker printer which I've found is the same as the Wanhao I3 Mini. The plan is to make what I can in my workshop and have metal CNC parts made for the parts I can't reproduce.
Do Polyjet printers print using the smallest enclosing part dimensions or do they always travel the full length and width of the printer bed? I'm assuming that traveling along the part dimensions would save time but is there a solidification time that is needed hence traveling the full bed length?

Hello everyone, Has anyone had any luck printing with copperfill. I bought a recommended new nozel to avoid damaging the zortrax one. This one is the herculues all steel nozeland is holding up but I can't get the copperfill to come out properly and even when it does it just curls up almost immediately. Thanks in advance.
My printer keeps printing lines away from the print on the build plate making the peint much longer. Im using cura.
When starting a new print the head goes to the rear right (facing the printer) and just stutters. The little red light comes on when the switch is pressed. Qidi CS said its probably the switch cable. Well, just got a new one and the problem persists. Strangely, I can usually get a print to start after some starting and pressing 'pause at z position' but its kinda hit or miss.
I too purchased the ezt3d printer and had problems, and also received a refund as the vendor did not seem capable or was unable to fix it.. The problem was that using the auto levelling ,after adjusting the extruder at the centre position when it moved to the outer positions it was always 2mm above the bed.
