Your 3D printer was printing great and now it’s not. 3D printers print great when you first get them and if you don’t properly maintain them, they will fail. In this article I will explain how to maintain your printer to ensure your ability to continue turning out great prints. All 3D printers require some amount of routine maintenance to continue printing.

Flexion Retrofit Kit Review https://3dprinterchat.com/flexion-retrofit-kit-review/ https://3dprinterchat.com/flexion-retrofit-kit-review/#comments Fri, 06 Apr 2018 13:05:01 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=22573 Originally this post Flexion Retrofit Kit Review appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

First Print of Flexion

My Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer has been under extruding and I needed a way to print flexible filaments. I looked into many solutions like the Flexion Single Extruder, Bondtech QR Universal Extruder and the E3D Extruder Upgrades. I read articles and watched YouTube videos reviewing each. In the end I decided to go with the Flexion based on price and ease of installation.

MasterSpool refill

With the popularity of FDM printing, 3D printers are left with a pile of empty filament spools. In this blog I explore how printers deal can deal with them. In the end I also propose some industry standards for the MasterSpool refills proposed by Richard Horne.

GeckoTek EZ-Stik Build Surface Review https://3dprinterchat.com/22450/ https://3dprinterchat.com/22450/#comments Tue, 13 Mar 2018 21:04:00 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=22450 Originally this post GeckoTek EZ-Stik Build Surface Review appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

Sheet

I recently needed to replace the China made generic build surface on my Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer. First let me say I do not work for GeckoTek and I not being paid in any way by them for my opinion. The sheet of GeckoTek in this review was purchased by me with my own funds. While considering on what to replace it with I caught a review by the JATMN on his YouTube channel. I was very impressed with the review and so I decided to purchase a sheet and try it. GeckoTek is the name of the company and they specialize in hot, cold and magnetic base surfaces for filament such as ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon, Composites. I have used Buildtek in the past and will discuss the differences in the two surfaces next. Their surfaces come in a wide range of sizes and are easily trimmed to fit your build plate. I bought the 200x210 and didn’t have to trim anything, it fit perfect.

OctoPi

More printers are being released with Wi-Fi as a feature, but many have printers without Wi-Fi. So, wouldn’t it be nice if you could add Wi-Fi to your printer? Problem: I have three MonoPrice Duplicator i3s in my garage. When I print to them I must place my .gcode file on a mini SD stick and then run it to the garage to print the file. Lets use Octopi

The way many sectors are 3D printing can be better thanks to a new additive manufacturing process that uses energy-efficient diode lasers. University of Sheffield researchers in the UK are working on a new 3D printing technique. Known as Diode Area Melting (DAM), this process is described as a “faster and more energy-efficient alternative to […]
