    Consider to attach the STL file you are using. This will provide for more information than the photo provides.

    According to the web page, the range for the nozzle temperature for Coex PLA (not other exotic filaments) is 215 to 235 degrees C. Your temperature of 245 waves a red flag to me.

    In the world of home-built aircraft, also called amateur aircraft, it is a common construction practice to weld a bushing into a tube. Through this tube will pass a fastener, the forces of which will...

    I've used a product from Resione named F69 Black Flexible Resin. The prints I made came out quite good and were what I consider to be durable and very flexible. A part about 8-10 mm thick could be...

    Meshmixer is truly an easy approach, but not if one is unfamiliar with it. YouTube is handy to find plane cut Meshmixer, but it's easier for me to chop it as requested than to parse out comprehensive...

    If I understand your objective correctly, you are asking for the equivalent of a threaded heat set insert, but without the threads? Of course, there's a mechanical advantage with the inserts in...

    The object is 0.05 x 0.06 x 0.09 millimeters. It's there, too small to see and too small for a 0.40 mm nozzle. Find attached a 1000x scale up of the model, more likely to be correct.

    Good quality is open to interpretation and in this context is effectively meaningless. Consider that one can route out a board of sufficient density to match your shape requirements. A large board...

    The concept is wonderful, generally speaking, but the execution is far too demanding, as you've discovered. It might take an incredible programmer to build a post-processor to take either an STL or...

    I have that same mill, now sitting idle because the bolt holding the lift spring in place has fallen free into my disaster area of a garage. One of these days, I'll find it and put it back together....

    You'll see two lines of discussion. One suggests that PLA is not subject to moisture problems, while another line will dispute that. I've not seen water vapor from the nozzle, using PLA, but have run...

    I've discovered in my reading that a sealed bag of filament can require drying to provide acceptable prints. If I have advance notice on a print, I'll put a new spool in the dehydrator for an...

    Also, I've been checking on appropriate filament types and find that there are not many options in the high-strength world. Another missing puzzle piece: what dimensions apply to this part?

    There are other, more easily implemented options in the compliant structure world than fins, and more important, easier to print!

    It's typical to provide for as much as 0.2 mm difference between joining parts, to ensure that once printed, there will be sufficient clearance for assembly. For a tighter fit, change the clearance...

    Popping sounds definitely mean you have moisture in your filament. Sometimes it can get so bad, you'll see water vapor coming from the nozzle! Even a new-in-box spool of filament can require drying....

    The typical stock nozzle is 0.4 mm diameter. With the restrictions on nozzle size versus layer thickness/height, you're limited to a 0.3 mm layer for your prints. You might be able to push it to 0.32...

    Your method of adding the vertical manually created support is the right direction, I believe. In order to get it to work, you'll want to ensure that the thickness matches your nozzle diameter. The...
