Octoprint works on tiny computers like the raspberry P. It is easy to use and rich in features which makes it very personalizable. Through this mini operating system, we can add all sorts of plugins to have complete control of our printer. You can control it through a web page or directly on your smartphone. Thanks to the numerous apps that exist.
Today I’m going to talk about an experimental way of printing that unleashes the true potential of 3D printing. I guess you all heard of non-planar 3D printing.
How can we prevent warping? In this short article, I will explain why warping occurs and how to prevent it. Based on the material used, and the external environment
There are situations were until yesterday everything worked fine and now it’s just a mess. Then we realize that we changed the filament and theories start to arise.
Very intuitively we can deduct from the name where the problem derives, and that is a matter of layer changes. Is this the only thing that matters? No, not really, In fact, the change of layer is at best only 50% of the problem.
In this guide, I will discuss the 3 fundamental Cura build plate adhesions which are Skirt, Brim, and Raft. I will demonstrate how they work and what are the differences between these three techniques that have distinctive purposes.
The literal translation of the term is a voltage reference. Stepper motors drivers have a device designed to maintain an accurate, low noise, constant output voltage. This is the exact description of what the driver does. The driver is the electronic device that takes care of guiding the stepper motor through the translation of the signals(an electric current) that are given to it by a processor.
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$.
Salmon skin is a recognizable print defect, for some, it is horrible to see, others find it characteristic. Despite all of this nobody wants it on their prints.
