    With the budget you have and the specific objective already in mind, you're on a good track to success.

    It's considered for jewelry makers that a resin printer is the best option. Filament...

    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.

    I'd seen a video somewhere on the 'Tube that tested model strength after epoxy application. No pressure application, just straight forward brush on and cure type of stuff. The results were...

    It's rarely necessary to hollow an FFF print, especially if you're going to perform casting as part of the project. You use the infill to provide for appropriate support of the overall model as well...

    You may be able to accomplish the experience you require by using TPU, sometimes known as the brand NinjaFlex. It prints well at slow speeds on a direct drive extruder, but I've been able to print it...

    I've been purchasing my filament from MatterHackers for a few years and have had consistently good results with the economy category. I'm not sure why I'd want to buy the Pro stuff, as the non-Pro...

    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.

    I have a BCN3D Sigma R16 and am not familiar with the model you note, but it's possible there are similarities between your machine and mine.

    One of the many online 3D printer reviewers posted a while ago a video in which he used a heated ultrasonic cleaner to remove uncured resin. In the process, he discovered that the material will...

    Don't use a die on the heat break. You could inject stress risers in a thermally dynamic environment consisting of slightly dissimilar metals. Clean it only as much as needed to thread it into the...

    If you have internet access, you can find a number of diagrams showing how the assembly is constructed. From the top, you have the finned heat sink. Inside the bottom of the heat sink is a double...

    Once you've cleaned all the leaked filament from the heater block, heat break, nozzle and heat sink, re-install the heater block on the heat break properly, along with the nozzle.

    If the problem (common) with F360 is too many faces, load the STL into Meshmixer and remesh the model to a lower percentage. You'll probably not lose too much detail and will be able to load it into...

    The hictop has direct feed, not bowden and that's a bonus, especially when the filament breaks. The Sigma has such a long filament path that a broken filament is a royal pain. Having moved the...

    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...
