    the rook moved because it wasn't stuck to your printbed sufficiently.

    Without knowing a whole bunch of stuff nobody can say about your noise.

    To get an answer we need - at least:

    not even relevant.
    it's unlikely you will ever print at 0.05mm on an fdm machine.
    Plus they're pretty much guessing anyway :-)

    Most printers are 'technically' capable of 0.05 layers. They are...

    filament run out is something that's never happened to me in over 6 years 3d printing. Even with two achines where you can't see the filament.
    Check you have enough before you start. It;s as simple...

    medal design not a problem.
    But die making for metal - not a clue :-)

    well the tronxy should be better quality - though there are so many things that's dependant on - you can't really say. the so called 'salmon skin' is neither here nor there. doesn't usually effect...

    right, well your printer is a CTC i3 pro-b
    Got one just to my left :-)
    That's the good news.

    The bad news is that it's currently the cheapest printer on the market.
    It's not the worst, not by...

    kinda curious to see if this will ever go anywhere.

    Given that we now live in a world where a small resin printer can be had for under ?100 and a full blown one for less than ?400.
    Is the...

    2 things.

    1) split the print in half lengthwise, print 2 seperate halves - with the peg lying flat, and glue.
    No supports needed.
    Print each half one at a time. wood filament doesn't really...
  11. Dimensional accuracy multi part print

    Currently making a pastry roller/cutter.
    The idea is you roll/cut a pattern in a sheet of pastry. You then pull the pastry apart and it creates a pretty lattice pattern that you put on a pie. ...

    looking around the net - it looks like the firmware can be updated.
    I'm pretty sure I've tried all the things I've seen that supposedly work.
    Who knows.

    not an old ctc machine - this years...

    what have you added to the glass bed ?
    ie: are you actually printing on the glass ?

    the old cura was quite good. But then they completely redesigned it and since then it's been really horrible.

    The last user friendly version was: 15.04.6

    yeah 0.9 - and so far utterly failed to update it or change settings.
    I do have a spare mks gen 1.4, but unless I can figure out some way to plug 2 z-motors into it - it's not much use for the ctc. ...

    yes :-)
    To be fair, I also repair other peoples as well.

    plus 3d printers are actually a lot more mechanical than electronic. So unlike many modern gadgets - there is a lot you CAN actually do. ...

    looks interesting - but the only machine I have with marlin is the ctc i3 - and it's hands down the worst firmware on all 5 machines. You can't even load filament with it. Have to do everything...

    I don't know of any.
    All the ones I have seen, just haven't worked well and can't recall ANY positive reviews of desktop filament makers.

    check the little black chip on the board - that's the chipset you need to set the arduino ide to.
