    Strange (to me) printing issue

    Hi everybody,

    I'm having a problem with most prints I've tried. At differing positions and times the print fails as the extruder starts going back and forth in a straight line along the y axis, eventually digging out a little groove.
    Any help would be appreciated, feel free to diss me if I've caused this with some stupid mistake...

  • First layer lines are way far apart

    I'm printing on a Tevo Nereus and the first layers are always too far apart. I've leveled the bed and tried adjusting the extrusion multiplier but it's still the same.

    Error code

    Hello, I'm new to 3D printing, I bought my first printer about a month ago and I'm hooked. I have made around 25 prints so far on my Sindoh DP200 and the prints look great. An error code "EC 356" came up and I was wandering if anyone can tell me what it means. I searched the manual under codes and it was nowhere to be found. Please help!

    Problem with z axis in Tronxy x1

    My name is Pedro and I'm new to 3d printing. I bought a Tronxy x1 that just arrived and manage to build it correctly (I believe :P)
    The problem is that I'm having an issue with my z axis. When I choose the option "Home all" the X and Y axis position correctly, but the z axis keeps trying to go down for 3-4 seconds until it stops. When I try to force the z axis to go up, it just keeps going down all the time.
    The wierdest thing is that when I put the z axis manually...

  • to correct slic3r settings for bowden & corexy

    Hi all,

    My environment for printing so far was: prusa i3 clone, with wade extruder, 3mm fill, 0.4mm noze, and slic3r. Now I have a chance to test completely different printer, workiing in corexy mode, with bowden all-metal extruder and 1.75mm filament (also 0.4mm).

    I tried to modify some settings in slic3r in configuration I used previously on prusa but had no luck (vide: pics). I can't quote exact configuration (have no access to other computer now), but the most important...

    Hey folks , where to buy Creality?


    Im in the Netherlands and looking to buy a Creality cr10 S printer.
    I have read lots of bad reports on Gearbest so really I should stay away from them I think. However they do have the best website all the other suppliers websites I have found seem very scammy, amateur and really difficult to navigate.

    any suggestions pls ?...

    started a topic Need Help: Best Prusa i3 kit?

    Best Prusa i3 kit?

    I'm relatively new to 3d printing. I took a class on it once, but it was more about the modeling side of things- my teacher took care of anything to do with the actual printing.
    Now I'm looking for a desktop-ish (a little larger than desktop size would be great) printer, with a budget of 200$ stretchable to 300$. I've got my eye on the Prusa i3, but there are so many different kits and I can't decide on which to get.
    Most important to me are sturdiness, ease of assembly (I don't mind...
