50W Ceramic Cartridge 12/24V Heater For J-Head 3D Printer

Hello I ran across A 50W Ceramic Cartridge 12/24V Heater For J-Head 3D Printer on E-bay. So I decided to ask the question, would there be any benefits in using and would the controllers circuit supply the current to this hot-end heater. Or would it be necessary to increase the power rating of the ho...

Re: PLA Tempatures

Well I tested all my new 100K ohm NTC Thermistors. they were suppose to be Compatible they are not. Should have bought from Manufacture. With the Temp set at 202C on primary hot-end all tested thermisters measured between 180-190C. So not easy will have to determine what thermister number they use, ...

Re: PLA Tempatures

Thinking about the temp vs print speed if too hot maybe print faster with a higher velocity cooling fan to model. A lot I have not experimented with as bad prints waste time and money, to wit both are running in short supply. Though need to test with a Temp tower and test max speed limits, Do they h...

Re: PLA Tempatures

I measured them with a DVM Digital thermometer probe, they matched the 3D Printer temperature readings . This was quite some time ago I could measure them again. Using a Digital Multimeter with a K-Type Probe :P3400 Allowed 2 minutes for temperature to equalize. :Measurement point directly on the po...

Re: Creality is printing with mirror effect

Looking at the Bottom picture it appears that you have the Y-Axis connectors connected to the X-Axis.
The next picture up from the bottom shows that the Y-Axis connector has the X-Axis connectors attached.



Unless somehow they have been mislabeled

PLA Tempatures

I have two 3D Printers 3DP11 and 3DP12 The 3DP11 prints at 196C - 12 volt supply The 3DP12 prints at 202C - 24 volt supply So I was determined to see if I could find a happy medium where both printers could print at the same temperature. The bed temp is the same for both 42C. If I raise the temperat...

Re: Creality is printing with mirror effect

Can you post a picture of your assembled 3D Printer.

Creality Cr-10 Printers come programmed. The only way I know to mirror the print. Would be to invert the X-Z-Axis assembly structure.

should look like this

They fixed the Octoprint plug in
The wall of text changelog isn't super helpful
The wall wasn't very helpful for me.

I Used Octoprint as a stand alone, did not note it was acting up.

Re: Hotend Heat Blocks

If you want to print a lot of volume. Was hoping to increase the Print speed, do not know the limits before the Printer movement start shacking 3D Printer to pieces. Or How fast you can 3D Print before material lamination will fail, guess only one way to find out it to stress the limits. (Believe l...

I've tried to learn so many CAD programs.... This guy named his Fusion 360 Learn series perfectly... Thank you LePaul. Wow this 13 Video series will be interesting to watch, now that I already have grasped the basic Fusion 360 Concepts. Who knows maybe can learn something I missed from my unorthodo...
