Re: Print a brick

Hi I don't know which brick you downloaded but I downloaded a 2x4 lego brick and measured it. Real Lego brick 15.78x31.78 downloaded stl file 16x32. So the 3D model is not to scale. I am guessing Lego have a small gap between the bricks so you can assemble them. Also I always make 3D models like thi...

Re: Noob with tons of questions

Hi Having gone through the process myself in the past year I know how you feel, it looks like a minefield. I knew very little about 3D printing when I was given a Folger FT5, it was in kit form. They said about 20 hours to build, I spent about twice that before I got my first print. Expect to learn ...

Re: Polymaker Polywood filament

I am guessing that each manufacture uses different material to get the wood effect.
I use Sunlu and it prints with the same settings as PLA and give excellent results, I did a Groot as well.
Yours seems a bit more "wood" than plastic colored wood, if you know what I mean.

Re: CAD for a 12 year old

Thanks all.
He is starting to use TinkerCAD. It does look easy to use.
No doubt when he outgrows this he'll know what he wants to use.

CAD for a 12 year old

Can anyone recommend a 3D CAD system that easy to use for a 12 year old. He is getting a 3D printer and will need to able to do his own models. The lad will probably be some sort of Engineer, poor kid (Dilbert). He will have the joy of learning to 3D print first, then he'll be looking to advance. It...

Resume 3D print

I have just seen this on Kickstarter, it continues your 3D print if it is stopped for whatever reason. I'll have to get one, it looks amazing!!!! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/resumer3d/resumer-3d-resume-your-interrupted-3d-prints-autom I have just been informed from the Resume 3D that this d...

Re: Best wood-fill filament?

Hi all I have just seem this post so sorry if it's a late reply. I also have wood filled PLA from SUNLU: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B01M1EATN5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I didn't think I needed to change anything for this filament. I used PLA settings and changed nothing, prin...

Re: Setting up Octoprint on the Raspberry Pi3 (video)

Hi Paul Another great video. I set up one of these a few weeks ago and it has made printing a lot easier. I decided to buy a Raspberry Pi camera with my Pi3 to make the setup easier. To try it out I used a network cable, that way you don't need to change anything. Download the image, burn to an SD c...

Re: Layer splitting with ABS

Found out why part of the print was not very good.
I used Cura with "Use adaptive layers" set with the default settings.
This was used to cut the print time down, but resulted in crappy walls.
I wouldn't be using this setting again.....

Re: Layer splitting with ABS

Well I have done a few parts in PETG, some aren't perfect but better than ABS. This part below is 180mm tall. As you can see at the top it started to print better for some reason. I'll have to play with the settings to get a better part but the first results look good, at 240 nozzle 80 bed 0.25 laye...

Re: Layer splitting with ABS

Thanks Anders Olsson What you say makes sense. I have bought another make of ABS and it prints a lot better at the same settings 100°C bed 240°C nozzle. I have no problem with the ABS sticking to the bed as I have a plastic type mat that works, sometimes too well as I can have great difficulty getti...
