    When a new nozzle is installed, a gap of about a millimeter should remain between the heater block and the nozzle shoulder. The heat break is then threaded into the heater block until solid contact...

    Far too often, I've found it difficult to edit someone else's STL creations, unless some form of source files are included. Fusion 360 has a mesh tab which opens a world of tools for manipulating...

    @bikeracer2020, I have a BCN Sigma R16 and agree with your assessment. The XL direct drive extruders are icing on the cake. The long Bowden tubes on the Sigma are a frequent nuisance. I wish the XL...

    Thanks for the clarification. If the two z-axis steppers are independently controlled, that's a bonus. Many multi-motor z-axis configurations are synchronized but not independent. You may be more...

    I've read the linked page, but don't see a reference to "dual bed axis." What does that mean? There are some pretty slick features expected with this new design. E3D has a five tool changer kit on...

    That's an interesting idea. Electroforming involves applying a conductive paint to a plastic part, then immersing it in a metal salts solution with electricity applied. If the PLA is already...

    I recently attempted the rename-to-zip process with the output file from Lychee (paid version) and the results were null.

    If you determine that the driver has failed, it's likely to be a common component, relatively inexpensive and found on Amazon, eBay and/or Alibaba/Aliexpress.

    The video is helpful. The problem now appears to be related to the stepper driver. The board requires a specific current level to provide power sufficient to move the filament. Either the adjustment...

    If you've noticed the drive wheel merely oscillating, consider that the setscrew, sometimes called the grub screw has come loose. This would allow the powered shaft to spin and not provide sufficient...

    I think the PNG files will be more than 8 bit as well, but any conversion to single bit format means you won't lose data, starting with black and white images as they are.

    It's quite easy to increase scale. Rather than going through the trouble of scaling in an editing or creating program, one can use the slicer to make the desired adjustments.

    I paid US$350 for my X-Max but I feel like that was a lottery win of sorts. I "fixed" the alleged underextrusion problem by changing the filament routing. That printer is where I got the internal...
