    I use a Sigma R16 IDEX printer, which has a silicone rubber nozzle scraper, but when printing in two colors, there's still some "dribble" to address. For that, I use what Simplify3D calls an ooze...

    Your approach is sound. You won't find a 0.015 mm nozzle, but maybe a 0.15 mm nozzle, but it's still an FFF process. Resin will get you a decent resolution and maybe a bit of brittleness. SLS is...

    Look for a monochrome LCD panel type printer. Print times per layer can be as short as 1.5 seconds, plus the three or four to lift and drop the build plate for each burn. I'm not sure about your...

    I've printed about 30 spools of ABS (MatterHackers ordinary blend) on a QidiTech X-Max. A new printer of this model is pricey, but I got an incredible price via craigslist. It's fully enclosed, but...

    The slicer is the program into which you load the model, position it, modify it, etc., then create the file to send to the printer. Once you identify the name of the software, you can type into your...

    A number of programs (free) are "out there" that are easier to use than blender. Your slicer should be able to scale the model as you require. What slicer are you using?
    If you still require an...

    There's a couple videos in which the model makers are using Simple Green detergent to wash the models. It appears to be reasonably effective. Uncle Jessy has at least two videos to cover this topic:...

    I'm not that proficient in Blender, although it's certainly a good skill to have. Tell me what type face you used and what you used for the non-text items. Consider also to export only the text as an...

    Check your normals on the text. From what I can tell in Meshmixer, all of the faces are pointing inward on the outer portions of the text and all the inner faces are pointing outward. I attempted to...

    Reached a limit in progressing

    Partly due to my limited skills and other health-related factors, I think I've gotten as far along on this project as I can get.

    The body is a single piece, with a "gate" to allow the joined...

    It's important to note that ScottB has already tried 3D Builder and did not like the results. The tutorial you've linked also shows how the resolution is fairly low and produces sharp transitions on...

    You have to start with something like an SVG file, rather than a bitmap (JPG, PNG, etc.) in order to create an extrusion. You can use Inkscape (free) to do a bitmap trace of the image, creating an...

    2) typically faster than 20, perhaps 30-40 is a good start.
    3) for PLA, you can get away with 40-60 °C easily. My Sigma has a glass bed that sits 3-4 mm above the heater pad (!) so my 70 °C setting...

    That appears to be well designed. I'd expect you can get the rods and bearings via Amazon or eBay or many 3D printing sources. 8 mm steel rod is not uncommon.

    If you can identify a point on the frame of your printer at which the filaments move very little, consider to attach a bowden tube guide at that location. The tube would run to your dry box and...

    100 millimeters per second is screaming fast, especially at 200 °C for the nozzle. At that temperature, 60 mm per second is pretty quick.

    You have to keep your problems and symptoms distinct. Your...

    Unless the printer is specifically a tethered device (rare), one does not have to use the USB cable. Typically, the printer is powered up and the computer is powered up. When the cable is connected,...
