    It is helpful to identify the printer model that you are using. Typically, a 3D printer will have a sequence for unloading the existing filament, via a front panel menu or similar interface. The same...

    I've seen a few home-spun suggestions in past months, but can't recall much detail about them. I think there's a full solution in production somewhere on the 'net that sends a signal to the...

    I'm not an artist and I don't play one on television, which means that my creation interests tend to the practical construction of 3D printed items. I've fallen into that camp, the one aimed at...

    I can't say about the Qidi or the Trinus, but I disagree with curious about building a kit. The Prusa comes with everything necessary to construct it, although you should have internet access to view...

    I have a sigma 2016 dual extruder model with no enclosure, although there are walls on three sides and an open top. When I print ABS, which has been quite a bit recently, I place a piece of cardboard...

    Meshmixer reports no errors, but sometimes a few can slip through on more complex models. Your model isn't all that complex and is probably good for manifold.

    no programming skill here either beyond the basic "if I do this, I want that" sort of thing. I'm not sure about the "most users" part, although the only other person I know who uses OpenSCAD is a...

    Consider to post a photo of the underside of your model. Also, it would be useful to know if you have a level, calibrated bed and how you perform that task. I don't know enough about the CR10 to be...

    you're a student based on the number of posted messages.

    Scaling a previously created STL file is pretty easy. I use OpenSCAD, Meshmixer and some Fusion 360 and Blender for my modeling projects....

    I was the primary "consultant" for the library when they decided to purchase a 3D printer. I'm not too worried about my reputation, but one can maintain ethics as well as a bit of pride. A big part...

    Your reference to USD leads one to believe that you are US based. As such, the Prusa i3 Mk2S is in your price range. If you purchase the kit, that is. I recommend the kit, as the instructions are...

    If you can go to 15" diameter, I'd be able to print it, but it would still have to be in six pieces, as the amount of time involved for such a large item is prohibitive in a single piece print. I...

    457.2 mm in diameter with 6.3 mm thickness is indeed a large print. With three clips, you could split the model radially along 120 arcs and get parts that can be printed on many of the larger...

    I suspect that it's not 43 mm, as the commercial resources mentioned earlier would not have rejected it as too big. If it's 43 inches, there might be a scaling problem with the originating software....

    Those thin walls are a killer! Meshmixer thinks the maximum dimension of the model is just under 43 mm, although the alternative indication is that it's slightly smaller than 43 inches. What is the...

    Without an image to reference, I'm going with a wild guess here. Shape of a frisbee implies a saucer/circular shape, but with contours approaching that of an aircraft wing in cross-section. Too large...

    It makes sense that you would place the amount of powder in the feed chamber that corresponds to the z-height of the object to print plus a bit more as a buffer. The printer should cease to load the...
