    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.

    From what point of the hot end does the material...

    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...

    100 meters at 1/87 scale is 1.149 meters or 1149 mm
    100 meters at 1/160 scale is 0.625 meters or 625 mm
    625 mm divided by 1149 mm is 0.54395 or 54.395 percent

    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...

    can you post a photo? One word is worth one one-thousandth of a picture.

    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...

    I've pulled the manual up on the web site and page 15, figure 5 shows a zip tie around the release fitting for the bowden tube. This confirms that your printer is not a direct drive and confirms that...

    I'm not one hundred percent familiar with the model you have, but the problem is not an unusual one, especially if you have a hot end which uses a bowden tube of any length inside the heat sink. If...

    do you have a physical 3D model, or the STL file of the model, or similar? The ideal configuration would be the STL file.

    From there you can download PrusaSlicer 2 and configure for an MSLA...

    That's an interesting model, 1250 mm from point to point (not flat to flat). Can you measure across the points (major diameter) to confirm that yours is 250 mm now?
