Re: Getting the Tevo Tornado first prints going!

I think Tevo Tornado would be good for a beginner or someone that wanted a good 3d printer.

Re: Assembling a CR-10 - Any "gotchas" to be aware of?

As soon as, I have received the Creality CR-10S printer, I spent literally 25 minutes to assemble the printer. It is so simple to assemble comparing it to other 3d printer kits. You can easily unpack the parts for the ease of installation and set-up for an everlasting experience.

Re: Print Speed - How to cacluate It!

Especially if you are new to 3D printing, then choosing the right speed for your print can be quite a challenge. After a bit of trial and error, you will be able to guess a setting that will generally work. There are many tools available online to calculate the right printing speed.

Re: Creality is printing with mirror effect

If the prints are mirrored likely one of your stepper motors (x or y depending on which way they are mirrored) is plugged in backwards. Flip the connector around.

Re: Brass versus Stainless Steel nozzles

I was going to buy a steel nozzle last week because steel just seemed superior to brass.

Then I read steel nozzles are not superior in performance to brass nozzles, and in fact, they give you ever so slightly lower printing speeds.

Re: PLA thickness for air pressure usage

3mm may be enough to hold air printed 100% depending on the surface area that is 3mm but you would need to test at low pressure to see if it will leak.

Re: 3D printer for Middle School education, which one?

3D printing is the next level learning technique. There are a lot of advantages to implementing 3d printing in education. There are many companies who are offering 3d printing services. But as my experience, Flashforge Finder and Ultimaker Original+ are best for educational purpose.

Re: 3D printer for Middle School education, which one?

It depends on which type of classroom you are talking about and what you want to do with the 3D printer.

I have Flashforge Finder 2.0 3D Printer. It is easy to use and comes with many features. It is the perfect starter 3D printer for families, schools and novice users.
