Re: Filament Run-Out Sensor

Attached is the first draft model of the filament run-out switch, I did not include a hole for the led in this draft model.
The circuit board fits into the model very securely and allows the LED end-stop switch to work very smoothly.

Re: PrusaSlicer - Slic3r

PrusaSlicer - Slic3r operates as well as any other slicer for my Hictop 3DP 3D Printers.
Though most likely as a creature of habit will continue with the same old Cura slicers I have been running, am I acquainted with.

Re: Filament Run-Out Sensor

I decided that sense I have a bunch of the RobotDyn that I will design a case for the end-stop switch for use as a Filament Run-Out Switch. Part one trim back PCB behind soldered connector. Then Solder wire from center of switch to GND terminals to restore trace. RobotDyn.jpg Now to redesign the cas...

Filament Run-Out Sensor

Today I am going to talk about making my Filament Run-out Sensor. Using these End Stop Switches. Image2.jpg RobotDyn.png I have already made a Filament Run-Out Sensor from the top switch. This requires some work to reduce the size and rewire the LED. I have purchased the RobotDyn End-Stop switches t...

Re: Globby 2-4th layers

I would suspect that you need to adjust the settings of your slicer. Without seeing the slicer settings I cannot help you, please post your Slicer name and the settings and we will find a solution for you. My 3D Printer is quite similar to your Ender Pro 3, I will post my Setting for Cura 4.3.0 for ...

Re: Can't print unless on a raft

Looking at you image of a printed model.
I see that you are starting your print too high above the bed, when you start printing at the correct height you will get a better printed model.

Re: Printer Globbing when Extruder at a Stand-still

I would be interested in seeing what slicer and the slicers settings, along with what material you are 3D Printing. It may also be of use to have a small model printed record video then post so we can see what it is doing. Personal I upload my videos on to You-Tube then post the link here, shown bel...

Re: Best budget 3D Printer ?

GrueMaster has a Hictop 3DP17 I believe he would be willing to part with.
I believe he said it would require a little adjusting and cleaning.

I though about it for myself however already Have two, a 3DP11 and a 3DP12 that have been both been upgraded to the same as a 3DP17.
