    I've also not seen anything like these images, from anyone's posting on the 'net. Consider to post a series of screens of your S3D configuration to assist in the troubleshooting process.

    I've got green ABS in the printer ready to go, which is less brittle than PLA and easy enough for me to print. I'll pop off a direct message to you shortly. Fusion 360 gave me fits to import the...

    With those considerations removed, it should be a relatively easy print. I'm a hobbyist 3D printer, but take on outside work occasionally. Send the file and I'll give you a quote. PLA, ABS, what...

    One portion of your design appears to be not well suited for FFF printing. The "points" of the extruded star shape will not be pointy using filament type printing. Are you willing to have slightly...

    Some of the posts remind me of a problem I'm having with a printer on which I've updated/upgraded the firmware. The first layer of your print should be examined for proper "squash" and I don't mean...

    This post gives an interesting perspective to the expression "when pigs fly."

    Can you see a point in the process where the filament isn't bonding well to the previous layer? Are you using ABS or...

    At first glance, your problem is with underextrusion on the first layer. If the other layers are okay, consider to check your bed leveling/nozzle clearance and your slicer settings. You mention a...

    Your board may certainly be at fault, but the stepper drivers that are hard-soldered to the board are the more likely trouble. Unfortunately, one doesn't pull them out and plug a new set in place....

    Let's see if we can remove some ambiguities. Always refer to the axis with each reference, not "the motor" or "the cable" to prevent confusion.

    Default configuration appears that the z-motor will...

    That's a pretty tough angle for the photo, but I can see that the stepper drivers are on the main board and not easily swapped. I found an entry on Amazon with this board. The location you moved...

    You have the right idea by swapping out the one axis. Don't stop there. Plug the Z axis cable into the Y motor. This will tell you if the stepper driver on the z axis is wonky. I'm not familiar with...

    The price on those clips makes the value of creating copies very poor. If 3D printed, the parts would be much weaker than the injection molded portions and would likely break in short order.

    The cap on thingiverse will not work well as a foundation for your project. Rough dimensions are also of very little value to such a project.

    You would not want to use someone else's creation in the form of G-code, as it can contain segments that are incompatible with your printer and could damage it.
