    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...

    Unfortunately, the attachment returns a message of invalid when the download is attempted. Being a JPG is likely to make the process of converting easier.

    Apparently the free version doesn't support PDF import, so I can't explore the options available to my installation.

    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...

    What happens if you print a cube with similar dimensions? You may get more useful information from an orthogonal model.

    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...

    Run away, run away! Our local library purchased a Cube 3 version 3 for nearly retail price and it worked so well for a too-short period of time. So well that I purchased one for US$500 and it also...

    It's all well and good that you're comfortable with the "point and shoot" mode in which you operate. As long as the filament you use matches those specifications, you'll be happy.

    Once you decide...

    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...

    Here's a tosser; grab a copy of Prusa Slicer 2 and a profile for your printer and see if anything changes. It's a free program and won't screw up anything already in place, but will almost certainly...

    The phrasing and lack of presence on the forum leads me to believe this is a bot generated response. It's barely on topic, although better than some posts I've seen. The post count says 2, but I...

    For a new guy here, your post is rather well done, comprehensively described. Considering all the things you've done to narrow the problem, I'm surprised it's as bad as it is. Only one thing jumps...

    What percentage of infill do you have set? Can you either attach your STL file or link it from the source? The brim has an even surface, which bodes well for the bed leveling. I'm not sure what to...

    Once you turn on the supports, you should see how they are placed in the preview. What slicer are you using? There are adjustments available for support density, support angle, others.

    It sounds as though the 47 inches would be the length of the hull. That's going to require a rather large printer, unless you can accept segmenting and gluing of the printed parts. A fellow...

    The attachment works, unfortunately in such a manner as to let me know it's not in the g-code. The early M104 line reads M104 S220 T0, which says set the temperature of Tool zero to 220 °C. The next...
