    FreeCAD should be able to make what you're looking for, but is a bit clunky. If you're new to 3d design I would recommend Onshape as a near professional level CAD tool that runs in your browser. ...

    I used FreeCAD to convert your STL into a 100+MB STEP file and was able to have Solidworks begrudgingly open it. Also uploaded it into an Onshape document. Here's a link:

    Klic N Print X-axis not stopping

    I recently began having trouble with my Klic-N-Print 3d printer, where the x-axis motor isn't stopping when the extruder reaches the limit switch at the end of its usual x-axis travel. This ends up...

    So, I've only had a little time to play around with the new machine. Do I need to run this slower or cooler without the print area cooling fan mod? Here's the quick test print I set up next to one...

    I was using version of Cura earlier this year and had problems with the raft adhering to the part. After an update, it looked like the raft approach was changed and then rafts just popped off as it...

    I agree with both of you. On one hand, it is a crazy value. On the other hand, I don't know the circumstances that somebody else returned it for. It looks like the bed has a Kapton film on it, but...

    So, I got mine in. Did I get a used one? There's a print started on the bed and it looks like there's a piece of adhesive that is smaller than the Kapton tape covering the whole print bed. The...

    Bubble wands

    Here's some bubble wands I made last year. They worked out OK, but I may revisit them someday to make the channels deeper to hold more bubble solution. Hope you enjoy.

    I like both of your points. The Sindoh printer I used at my old job had a leveling assist function that told you how many turns of the left and right screws were needed to level the bed. I'm...

    Hello Keninct,

    Just took a quick peek at your model, and I'd agree with number40fan. You may be better served starting from scratch with a photo underlay to trace over. Or, you could use the...

    I've seen you critical about the 3 point leveling system in another thread. Can you elaborate your dislike for the 3 point vs. the 4 point leveling plate? The Sindoh printer at my old job was a 3...
