Re: Joining Team Resin...bought a Voxelab Proxima

If you can get ahold of an old computer rack cabinet with solid sides, that would be ideal. You can always cover the front and back easily enough. Build a couple of shelves for it and you could store 2 printers inside. And it won't take much to keep it warm, maybe a heating pad or a spare heated pri...

Re: Conversion to dual colours

Not an easy undertaking by any means. Do you want to do direct modifications to your system? This is really something that is a high level of difficulty with the potential of completely bricking your system. Not that it can't be done. If you are trying for separate colors in different layers like my...

The real question for @LePaul is, when are you going to be on the box art for some new printer?

Granted, you're not Naomi Wu, but ....

Re: New User Post Limit (Mods please read)

I have only been online occasionally (usually in the mornings while waiting for my coffee to be ready). When I am on, I do a sweep and delete a LOT of spam (at least before the holidays). I did just see a spam post in a PM, which was very odd. Deleted it already though.

Re: Model will slice but printer don´t read the file

Also, I don't think the firmware will work with subdirectories or files longer than the dos 8.3 naming convention. Check those as well.

Re: How to improve bounding when splitting 3D print in parts

I would experiment with a smaller model first. Something like a simple wall (I have seen a lot of those for tabletop games). Something that will take very little time to print. Print a full one, then reprint in two pieces to experiment with settings.

Re: How can I choose the best 3D Printers for Miniatures?

If miniatures is all you are printing, then yes, get a smaller printer. I printed some really nice pieces with my Hictop 3DP17. But I printed better ones on my CR-10S (larger printer but better quality - except for bridging). This was printed using coffee filament on my 3DP17: bookshelf1.jpg These w...

Re: Raspberry Pi Cluster

The red box is the cluster master, the green boxes are the slaves (or whatever is PC these days), and the black box is the 5 port POE switch. The fan is a USB powered desk fan and it keeps the entire rack cool enough.

Re: Can you really have too many great printers?

He who has the most printers in life, wins.

Kind of like in woodworking; you can never have too many clamps.

Re: Repair or replace clogged nozzle?

That looks like a first layer height adjustment issue. The layer height test prints that I do prints a box in each corner, then fills it in with lines. If the print head is at the perfect height, the lines blend together and it ends up with the bottom as smooth as glass. With the head too high, I ge...

Re: Ripples in the surface layer of my prints, Help!

What infill density are you currently using. I'd recommend at least 30-40%. Also, you should add more surface layers. You could also enable ironing mode if you are using one of the latest versions of Cura (not the one that comes with the CR10 - get it here).

Re: Best budget 3D Printer ?

Another option is the Creality Ender. For precision, you can get a smaller head (0.2mm), but I'd stick with the stock at first (0.4mm) until you know you need better precision.

Whatever you get, you can always find someone to help here.
