    As drawings go, yours will need additional work. Consider to use a program such as Tinkercad or similar to generate a 3D model. I've found a video how to create gears in Tinkercad here:

    As many readers will note, I'm a big fan of the Prusa printer line. I don't own one, but recommended to the local public library makerspace that they purchase one. At the time, it was the MK 2s...

    I would use a soldering iron and carefully push away the material from the nozzle. If one uses great care and has a hot air gun with a reduction nozzle, one could also heat up the PLA and push it off...

    I'm able to open the .STP file in Fusion 360 and probably could export individual bodies to STL. Printable? I don't know.

    If you are using FFF/FDM printing, you don't have to hollow the model. A low infill percentage will give the model internal strength without excessive filament use.

    If you are using a resin...

    There are metallic filaments out there, but I expect the results may not be what you seek. Those that I've seen appear to require high levels of careful detailed sanding, followed by equally careful...

    If your objective is to create models of human form (or alien form, for that matter), look for a program which involves managing organic shapes. Many 3D programs are well suited for engineering type...

    Yeah, I see that now. Complete brain fade for this one. The "old Anet" is not the old Anet, though it's the new Anet Max and I think that's what threw me off.

    The question at hand isn't if it could be done. People have printed full scale cars, why not an aircraft?

    The problem is the word "free." Many kilograms of filament would be consumed in creating...

    It almost sounds as if you are going to ask the community to 3D print for you, without monetary compensation, a full scale model of a MIG-29 jet aircraft. Considering that the cost of the filament...

    Many moons ago, the local library was saddled with a Cube3 printer. It started well but deteriorated rather quickly, especially after the manufacturer pulled all support. I was asked to recommend a...

    That's great that you have an STL file, which cuts your workload to a quarter or less.

    In the isometric view of the part, you have what I believe to be the best orientation for printing. Be sure...

    You've taken on quite a project, especially considering how new you are to the activity.

    Two primary factors, design and position/printing.

    Regardless how you position the part on the print...

    Another place an unusual nozzle shape might work is on the 6 axis robotic arm type 3d printers. The wrist typically can rotate through 360?.

    Petercat, your observation is a good one. With a non-orthogonal move, the width of the layer would be something other than the dimension of the square's width. That's the best reason yet for a...

    I expect a large portion of the reasoning is manufacturing costs. It's far easier to generate a cylindrical hole in a mass than it is to create a precision square hole. Broaching is one method of...

    That's a silicone cover for the heat block. It helps keep the heat in and the gobs of filament clear of the block. It still gets hot, so keep fingers clear!

    If you're asking how to know the overall size, there are many variables that have to be turned into values. Consider at first the offset of the nozzle center to the extreme edge of the carriage on...
