    Can you change the orientation of the part by rotating it 90 digress so the point is up.. you can not print over open air..

    what your part looks like does not matter.. the system works from the build plate up .. Bottom is what touches the plate, top is what has nothing above the bottom. So if the part that touches the...

    Slicers have settings for number of bottom layers, number of top layers, number of perimeters... if zero then you get no layers..

    you did not say where the part is failing. Are the blades coming off the hub? I would have added a fillet where the blade meets the hub to make that area much thicker. 3d printing and parts that...

    Can you show me what you are looking to do? Do you have a model already made or still conceptualizing it in your head?

    Had never heard of such a thing but a quick google shows what it looks like.. This type of object would not print very well. ALL open spaces would need supports and the thin curved structure does...

    Glad you got a print done! Things like this are why the higher end printers cost more.. Tight tolerances, well built assemblies that do not change from how they are set, etc. Please know, that when...

    Ok, so cleaning filament is just that. When you remove the pla you heat the nozzle with the nozzle way above the bed and you extrude 200 or 300 mm. Then you remove it and insert whatever you are...

    and what happens when the print starts.. filament balls up or just does not stick? Have you run cleaning filament through your hot end after the PLA and before the PETG? I really do not know what...

    PETG sticks to anything if the starting Z axis offset (gap between nozzle and bed when it is at Z0 is within the proper parameters. I use to print on heated glass, and removing the print was the...

    I don't believe so, it is a heating element, just a resistance load, so make no difference which way the current flows.

    Hi Bob, additive fabrication is probably not what you want. If you are using O-rings you are trying to seal something. 3d printing is not known for it's air/water tightness. Also as you fear, the...
