    I noticed that the price for the German produced version increases with each right-sided option selected. This implies that the Magnum has the highest capability, probably a good idea considering...

    A machine error, especially one made on an automated line, might result in two sets of threads, both of which would be fully functional. If you find a good source, replace both of them, as the...

    That's a fairly peculiar looking thread. It's almost as if it was cut twice in error. The correct measurement is not 13 mm, though, as you should measure from the underside of the head to the end of...

    The x-max has the capability to mount a spool internal to the build chamber, in the back lower right panel. I've placed my spool holder in that spot, as it does not interfere with the rest of the...

    Another curious aspect about 3D builder is that it will attempt repair of failing or failed STL files and often enough, present a nicely corrected model. Somewhat counterintuitive when it comes to...

    If you use other than PTFE, you are on your own, experimenting with materials not tried by others (that I've seen online) and can risk damaging the film. If you use specifically PTFE, and apply too...

    I've seen a video in which the operator used a PTFE liquid lubricant. It was applied to a clean cloth and rubbed over the FEP film. It's clear that it would be ill-advised to apply too much. Ensure...

    Some PDFs are vectors (rare) and many are text, but if it's an image, it could be a bitmap. Can you attach the PDF file for examination? I'm downloading the program to see if I can assist directly....

    Of all the 3D modeling programs with which I am familiar, SketchUp has the worst track record for creating printable models. I did not download the file from the links provided, but it's likely that...

    250 watts is quite a bit of heat in an enclosed space. My partially-enclosed BCN3D Sigma 16 gets to 40 °C from the heat of the bed alone and the top is completely open. If you have the means of...

    I've made ABS slurry to apply to the build plate and even in a sealed container, the acetone evaporated, leaving a film of ABS behind. It's not so much that it hardens as it is that the solvent...
