I guess all of you stod there, watching the first layer getting printed and hoping for a perfect “first layer porn”; When we achieve that kind of first layer perfection, other than the satisfaction, we also know that most certainly the print from there will go great! It is well known that the path to achieving a successful print, starts from the first layer, without a perfect first layer we can have all sorts of problems; from bad adhesion to failed supports and many other issues.
When it comes to optimizing your 3D printer, one of the aspects to consider is definitely the printing speed. The duration of a print is already eternal, so why not optimize this parameter properly? You may be wondering, “just raise the speed in the slicer”, yes ok you are right. But how far can we raise it without imploding the printer? Take some time and calmly follow these basic concepts related to movement speeds.
Everybody who owns a 3D printer has experienced a clogged nozzle at least once, or most probably it will happen sooner or later. A clogged nozzle is a common problem and afflicts printers worth 200$ as well as printers worth 2000$.
More and more often we need to surf across the web to find the correct Gcode for some task. Here you can find the most usefull ones.Gcode is a very basic language and allows us to control our machines and to make them perform in any matter. We can change the greetings text or add a low bit photo, send manual commands, and change printer settings.
Increasingly, a question arises among makers and in 3D printing communities: Which 3D material is suitable to use regularly for food and beverages? At which point it is still safe to use them? For example, using a cookie form or a water bottle is the same thing?
