An old half written blog entry from a couple of years ago I'd found in my drafts and decided to inflict it on you, my friends!
Have you recently bought your first 3D Printer? I've provided a series of articles to try and help you get the best from your printer, from calibration to trouble shooting, please take a look and let me know your thoughts or if the articles helped you.
A simple and easy way to calibrate your 3D Printers eSteps to help reduce the issues of under/over extrusion
To get the best prints, especially if you're creating prototypes from CAD designs, calibrating your printers X, Y and Z axis is key. I'll show you how to calculate the steps needed to adjust in your printer.
Are you suffering from stringing on your prints? If so, it could be that you need to run calibration on your extrusion distance, speed and possibly a temperature tower test. We'll cover this off in today's article.
Having a level bed makes the difference between a good print and one that is fraught with issues. In this article I'll cover some of the basics with Bed Levelling and additional tips if you're using an Automatic Bed Levelling Touch Sensor.
You want to add Automatic Bed Levelling to your 3D Printer? This article covers the basics of installing the hardware and compiling updated firmware and installing it to your printer.
If you're new to 3D Printing then you need to know some of the Slicer tools available to you that help bring your prototypes and creations to life. I cover some of the tools I use which may be useful to you as you start your journey.
Sooner or later, whatever your experience of 3D Printing, you'll need to deal with blockages, even more so with multi-extruder printers. In this article I cover off my experience of handling blockages and how I've managed them.
Bed Adhesion is one of the key issues with 3D Printing, in this article I look at some of the options and tricks you can use to help your prints stay when it matters most.
