    I hope you mean that your bowden tube was not against the heat break, rather than the nozzle. If it's against the nozzle, it's going too far into the assembly. It should stop well clear of the heater...

    You've just discovered a common factor in some 3D printer designs. Belt tension can be too much and cause problems. You won't know what it would have done to the print, but that's a good thing at...

    The vertical travel appears to be within the belt, not the pulley. Either way, it's the horizontal action of the mechanism that matters. Have you experienced artifacts in the print that you think may...

    I've pulled the manual up on the web site and page 15, figure 5 shows a zip tie around the release fitting for the bowden tube. This confirms that your printer is not a direct drive and confirms that...

    I'm not one hundred percent familiar with the model you have, but the problem is not an unusual one, especially if you have a hot end which uses a bowden tube of any length inside the heat sink. If...

    do you have a physical 3D model, or the STL file of the model, or similar? The ideal configuration would be the STL file.

    From there you can download PrusaSlicer 2 and configure for an MSLA...

    If you're considering to create/commission a servo mounting bracket from aluminum, you'd have to find someone with a CNC router to get the best results. It's common to have laser cut plywood servo...

    Store your filament in a dry container, even a zip-lock type bag, with a bag of desiccant inside. It may also be necessary to bake the desiccant periodically to ensure that it's absorbing moisture...

    It would be useful to know how your show piece is constructed, perhaps a photo or more. Do you mean "decorate" as in to add window frames, door frames, chimney stacks, features of that sort? If those...

    Thanks for the offer, but my traveling days (from Florida) are over. I've run into failed prints due to crappy filament too, although I got a bunch at five bucks a kilo and some at zero dollars per....

    I've attached an STL file of the orginal nut, reduced to twenty percent and chopped at the point just below the lettering. There will be a solid bottom if you have your slicer settings correct and...

    That's an interesting model, 1250 mm from point to point (not flat to flat). Can you measure across the points (major diameter) to confirm that yours is 250 mm now?

    It appears from the manual that...

    The g-code is not of much value without knowing the layer at which the print failed. More useful would be the thingiverse item number or a complete link, along with the scale figure you used to...

    Wow! I sure got that backwards, didn't I?

    It doesn't bode well for your search, unless you can tolerate the lower glass transition temperature and are interested in only the melting temperature.

    Based on your requirements, PEEK filament may serve your purpose. The link presents a glass transition temperature of 293°C, just a bit higher than the 270°C in your post. A melting point of 653° is...

    Why would you need one hundred percent infill? If the top isn't enclosed, it's because your top layer settings are incorrect, not that the infill settings are incorrect.

    It would probably be...

    I agree that Fusion 360 isn't going to be easier than Tinkercad, which is probably the easiest program for 3D modeling, but also the least powerful.

    I second JustMatt's suggestion that it's a good...

    I see the print speed is 80 mm per second. That's astonishingly fast in my opinion. Consider to slow it to 50 mm per second as a test.

    Based on your statement that you have only one print sequence available, it's risky to gamble on a too-small spacing. I purchased from Angus of Makers Muse a tolerance test model, which allowed me to...
