    Can't say I've ever had to print a viking helmet, but I guess everyone's use case is different. That being said I personally dont have the patience or desire to print large decorative items. All of...

    My advice on big printers is generally "you don't need a big printer".

    Aside from big prints taking ages, and most people don't have the patience to put up with that, 3d printing (or at least fdm)...

    Reinforcing during printing, not so much. The markforged printers can and do this by turning the printed part into a semi typical fibre composite. But no machine you're going to have on your desk for...

    Finally fixed the warping issue, a bit of abs juice and the parts stick with no noticeable warping. Gonna start printing all the parts once I tune in the tolerances I need.

    Anyone got any thoughts...

    I've done a few tweaks (and working on a few more) to lower the amount of material needed. The top red plate will be removed, the corners have been trimmed down a bit and will be trimmed further.

    I'm only using ABS because it came free with the printer and I only have a partially full spool of PLA :(.
    I just figured a small, enclosed printer with a z axis bed and a hotbed capable of reaching...

    Thanks for filling out the survey!
    The answer is no, I don't have any pictures of the machine yet. There is a "total_assembly" module in the .scad file which renders an assembly of the machine if...

    Cheap, 3D printed CNC

    Not necessarily a 3D printer (you could strap a hotend on there!), but it is 3D printed. Thought people here might be interested, but if it's against the rules please feel free to remove it mods.

    I'm not too sure what you mean by changing infill direction. From what I'm aware the rectilinear/grid infills alternate direction to give you a cross hatch sort of effect. Secondly, "modifying" the...

    Your firmware shouldn't let the z axis move that fast, unless it's configured very optimistically. As for the default units, it's typically mm. And from what I'm aware, that F9000 only applies to...

    No particular filament recommendations, but just a general PLA characteristic to note. PLA tends to print either with a gloss or matte finish depending on if you print it at the higher or lower end...

    CA is right, if you want to print in metal, and not just plastic with some meta dust in it, your budget is much too low. It's not the size of the metal printer that's going to make it expensive it's...

    Those were probably home user machines, what I was talking about is the factory machines filament manufacturers use. These setups are huge and wouldn't fit in a demo booth. Make magazine did a brief...

    Being harder doesn't make it more fragile, being weaker would. A lot of people don't seem to understand some of the terms when it comes to breaking or failing parts. A material can either be...

    If the controller board is fried, you can have the printer back up and running for $15 or so with a ramps or similar. No need for a whole new printer.

    The design is done. I'm not entirely happy with it, mostly because I'm trying to make a small printer with big parts and it isn't working out.

    As of yet it is untested, but if anyone wants to try,...

    Scratch that, still have the drive gear/pulley and motor gear to do as well. Those should be quick.

    Holy mother of a fillet. You never realize how bloody hard it is to fillet between a box with an arbitrary translation and rotation, and the cutout of a circle, until you try it. I spent literally an...

    Avoid the M3D. Their motors are rubbish, cheap steppers with plastic gearing that strips very easily. Their motion system looks clever but is prone to binding (in z axis, which also affects y axis)...

    Are you talking about the spirally wisps going up the side of the part?

    Did you disassemble or dismount the hotend during your modification? I once did some work on the extruder/hotend of my i3 clone and the wiggling snapped off one of those tiny thermistor wires, after...

    For starters, a cheap way to make a decent heater would be nichrome wire, or just buy some cheap heating unit that you can control from the control board or has its own temperature conroller.

    My bad, I think I was thinking about/replying about the other thread with the under extrusion. Bumps are usually fine, but can mess with you when you need two parts to fit together.

    Update, V0.0 will have a 95x95 cylinder build volume. Due to unforeseen chamfering (which is totally necessary, I won't take any arguments) the base/frame of a 100x100mm printer is too large for the...

    Not impending doom, but it shouldn't be happening, prints shouldn't have gaps. It's likely a settings issue, try different slicers or slicer profiles, see if that fixes it.
