    If you've read mixed reviews on the Creality, you've probably found consistently good reviews for the Prusa i3 MK3s. Depending on how patient you are, there's hints of a Prusa Max printer, to compete...

    I'd like to chime in here, but I'm missing the big picture and probably the small ones too. Photographs are a great idea for something of this nature.

    That's an amazingly comprehensive (and complex) upgrade for the printer. My Sigma 16 uses Bondtech geared extruders and I know how well they work, but this upgrade sort of scares me!

    oh shucks, that's not what I expected. I had some other bearings left over from a project and replaced the entire rod/shaft with a new one. The roller spins so freely that a full spool unrolls and...

    tell us more about the ball bearing mechanism? do you have photos and a reference for the part? If the feed roller wasn't a ball bearing type, was it merely a bushing mounted roller?

    @curious aardvark, the comma missing after "NO" seriously changes the context.

    I've noticed with my X-Max that I can accidentally re-direct the PLA filament in such a manner that it does not exit the nozzle and instead exits to the rear of the assembly. This leads me to believe...

    You know what's important in all this maker stuff is to find tools that work for you, use those tools and accomplish your objective. You did that.

    It's quite a bit different from other slicers in the way it works, but Prusa Slicer v2 is a great program. There's a rather comprehensive instructional web site specifically for your printer and...

    ABS is prone to warping, especially if the printer is not enclosed. That covers the base of the model. The other "mushy" portion is underextrusion, which can be caused in many ways. Too low of a...

    It's unfortunate that you are in the UK and I am in the USA. Shipping from here would take forever and cost far more than the item creation. It appears to be an easy print, some minimal supports...

    If your slicer supports multiple profile definitions in a single print, it should be possible. Simplify3D slicer would allow me to specify number of walls, layer thickness, infill percentage for a...

    Is it the entire print that is coming loose from the bed? I used to be able to print on the clean glass, but found that it was too risky and shifted to using purple glue stick, which works wonders.

    I've had this problem in the past and usually can attribute it to filament that's jammed up debris in the nozzle. Sometimes a nylon cleaning will take care of it.

    You've "changed every setting"...

    The printer isn't going to be the determining factor in your goal, I believe, as much as the filament choice will be. 3D printed parts are generally considered to be porous and not watertight unless...

    I thought one had to create the modules first, otherwise the calling code would not "see" it.

    Thanks for sharing that segment. I added a scale factor to the second object in the difference portion and translated it downward by a smidgen to get rid of the z-fuzz. Of course, I played around...

    My experience is with the previous model, and it's been absolutely great. The kit is a better choice, as you save money and learn how your machine is assembled. You may have very few problems with a...

    I've run into problems with my ABS prints on glass on a different printer. As the job cools, the print pulls pieces of glass out of the bed. I was astonished to see this. The solution I used, which...
