    Hi all! Newbie here!

    Hello everybody, I thought I'd just introduce myself as I'm new to the forums. I recently purchased my first printer and now I am patiently waiting for it in the mail!

    I am a total newcomer to 3D printing, although I've been very interested for a while now, I finally decided to take the jump!

    If anyone has good advice on programs, methods, or good/bad habits, I'm all ears, I know almost nothing!

    I look forward to being with you all on this new journey!

    Cheers!

    Hi Apollo. You came to the right place. You'll get a lot of good help here. Write back as you get set up and start printing. Welcome!

    Good Habits:

    1. Keep good notes so you know what worked and did not work. I have an Excel document that lists all kinds of things and also has a photo of each print for reference. I leave it open all the time when I'm printing so that I can easily update it.
    2. Read a lot on the Web. There's a ton of info available.
    3. Be patient. There is a learning curve, not bad, but you do have to figure a few things out. Your first few prints may be disappointing.
    4. Learn early on how to level the bed and set the gap. The best things you can learn.

    Bad Habits:

    1. Not doing any of the above.

    Welcome eldonthamvtsee!
    Sadly, I'm still waiting for my printer to arrive
    I guess all the bad rumors about QU-BD are true, and it will probably be a while until I receive it :/
    Maybe I should have sacrificed some build space for a printr bot or a maki box, and already been up and running...
