    New doesn't cover this.
    As the title says I'm so new to this field, new doesn't seem to truly describe it to me. I couldnt tell you anything more than there are 3 types of machines and 3 main materials for FDM printing. What I'm looking for is a good place to teach myself everything. Google is a powerful teacher for me but I want something a bit more in depth from good sources I don't have to repeatedly verify. I'm currently a cnc programmer and opporator so I know there is plenty to learn about this stuff. I'm looking...

    Is PLA or ABS better for functional prototyping?
    Hello, I recall that when I used a Makerbot 2 to print a rectangular box using PLA and compared with the same object printed using ABS from Up Plus 2, the one made of PLA bent easily. I don't know if it is just a specific case but in general, which material is better for functional prototyping?

    How is the Up Box+ compared with the Raise3D's N2/N2+?
    How is the Up Box+ compared with the N2 series in terms of factors like print quality, reliability, maintainability, etc?

    Hi Everyone!
    Hi everyone, i'm going to say it straight off the bat that i'm a noob when it comes to 3D printers, I did a little work with CNC routers years ago but back then 3D printers were the enormous expensive things that used UV resin and cost more than a few nice cars!

    Currently I have a Prusa I3 MK8 clone that i'm having mixed results with, I can get it to move but I can't get the extruder to extrude enough PLA or even stick to the base plate, I also think the Z axis may be moving up slightly...

    How to get better prints on MP Select Mini
    Hello, I’m new to 3D printing and I’m having trouble finding the cause of my printer skipping over layers in some parts. I don’t know if it’s the retraction settings or temperature or speed. I printed the money bank pictures with my niece’s name with Fugetek PLA at 220 degrees C and the buildplate at 60 at 60mm/s on the MP Select Mini. I printed a low poly egg shaped light shade with these setting and it printed almost flawlessly.

    If any one could share their settings for good...

    XYZ 1.0 AIO-long bars lifting at corners most recently
    Hello, my name is Mark from Cleveland Ohio. I'm a professional local P&D driver and when I'm not driving I'm Pro Painting autos. I'm now 57 years old now and still feel much younger. The avatar above depicts a 1987 VW 16V Scirocco in which are now 35 years old. The photo is for attention only as mine is still in the build phase hoping to be finished this summer. The whole build including paint and heavily modded from original is all being done by yours truly! That out of the way I bought a Davinci...

    Large scale 3D printer options?
    Hi there, new to the Forum and 3D industry.
    We are looking at 3D printing, possibly in ABS, as an option to continue making light weight service bodys for the back of light trucks using additive manufacturing in Australia.
    Brief description - the primary part to be printed in one piece has some internal shelves, compartments and dividers etc. and at the moment is folded/rolled/fabricated from light gauge steel. Overall measurements - 2010 wide x 3050 long x 1622 high.
    I am looking...

    DIY 3D Printer progress
    Still a little more to do on the printer but its coming on slowly. Waiting on nuts and bolts, belts, Wire, Limit switches, some fans and a alu plate, Still need to finish the cross shaped z axis. Build area is smaller than i was hoping but this was due to changes in the z axis design.

    Info - Design is based off https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2423066
    My modifications
    1) Modified carriage : Current Material PLA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icWlVEwQ9t4

    My First Benchy
    After a week or two of tweaking, I finally got my FLSun Prusa i3 (1.75mm E3D V5 head, heated bed, aluminum frame, auto level that I can't make work) running reliably and printing consistently. Here is my first attempt at a Benchy. 190*C Hot end, 50*C bed, .2mm layers, 20% infill, MG Chemicals brand PLA.

    Overall I'm quite happy with the results for this early in my 3DP career. I've still got some tuning to do in order to improve quality, but on dimensional checks this guy is within...
