    Can't get rid of elephant foot.

    Hey guys!

    I am fairly new to 3d printing, I recently bought a Crealty Ender 3 Pro. For the past 3 weeks, I have been trying to get rid, or at least minimalise elephant foot at the bottom of my prints, both with PLA and ABS.

    Here is what I have tried so far (using Cura slicer), with a simple 2 by 2 cm cube, exported as an STL from Blender, printed on a heated glass bed, layer height 0.2mm:

    1. initial layer horizontal expansion (down to -2 mm, in 0.5 increments)...

    Information about materials

    Hi, I am totally new to 3d Printing. Can anyone please tell me some material with longest lifespan (Long lasting) , may be sort materials by lifespan / durability / Easy to use? I have already read about materials on a lot of sites but it is so confusing. To put it simply, I wanna print some models which I can keep for really long. Thank you in advance.

  • hollow object get closed when making STL file to print file

    Can anyone help me with next problem.
    I drew a hollow object in Sketchup and saved it as an STL file. When I open it in Flashprint and save to print it becomes a fully closed solid object. The cavity disappears, and the opening at the top of the object is closed. I also tried to create a print file in Meshmixer but I get the same problem there. THX

    Dremel Digilab 3D45

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to this group, and I don't have a lot of experience with 3D printing, but I love it.
    I'm looking for a printer to buy, and need your opinion as of the best 3D printer around $1000 - $1500.
    I've done some research online and there are plenty of machines to choose from.
    The one that grabbed my attention the most is Dremel Digilab 3D45.
    What's your opinion on that?
    Would you please share your thoughts and experience (good and bad)?

  • Need password from XYZPrinting to download software

    I received my XYZPrinting daVinci Jr 1.0A Pro printer yesterday. I need a password to register it and to download the software to use it. I have sent several messages to them via their website over the last day and a half, but they have not responded. I need to convert some GCODE files to 3w, and see no way to do it without their software, for which I need the password. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • Help with my strange printer

    Thank you for letting me join, I am genuinely hoping someone can help me. (Apologies in advance for the long post)

    I had an old A8 printer that pretty much failed and got put in a cupboard for 3 years. I was then given an old and broken printer with a Polish board that I managed to get working by using some A8 components and with the help of a kind guy from the A8 group.

    We got it working and he advised me into getting a PoPprint SKR V1.1, a v6 nozzle, a BL Touch and Octopi....

    Leveling problem....

    Hi! I'm Barb... Relatively new to 3D printing but I've created 3D models since the 1990s. Anyone ever heard of an Amiga?

    I am PRETTY SURE (or maybe you'll tell me I' wrong) that the problem is leveling. I have just an entry level printer (Monoprice Select Mini) therefore I have to do my own leveling.

    I'm getting frustrated... Originally (see side view of said object is top one) the print came out great. Then I had to move the printer and when I did, the NEXT version...

  • Prusa i3 Hephestos Heatbed SUDDENLY stopped working

    Hi everyone,

    So i'm running a Prusa i3 Hephestos 3D printer with RAMPS 1.4. I recently added a Mk. 2a heatbed. I did this by setting up a high current power supply, updated the firmware and hooked up the heatbed and thermistor wires to the D8 pins. And it worked!

    It worked really well up until today. The current and target temperatures are still being reported but the heatbed is just not recieving any power. Here's what I know so far:
    - The heatbed is not faulty...

  • STOPS printing in the middle of a print / cold nuzzle stuck in the unfinished print

    Hi,

    I'm using de Da Vinci Mini W+ 3D printer from XYZPrinting,
    and my printer stopped printing in the middle of a print (I still had enough filament on the roll and on the chip, and already printed long/big stuff).

    I've got an error 0007_1 code saying "Cartridge 1 error. Please remove cartridge and install again".
    So I took off the chip understanding it was the cartridge and nothing has changed.

    Now I'm still here with the nuzzle stuck...

  • Hello. Im looking for advice to buy my first 3d printer.

    Hello

    I apologise if this is not correct subforum for this, but i scanned the various places and couldnt find a better one to post it.

I've had a chance to play a little with my friend's Ender 3 Pro, but i want to buy one for myself. I wanted to ask people's advice on which model(s) i should be looking out for during Black Friday.

    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...
