How to do Projects that someone really can PRINT!

Hi folks Your Favourite 3dprinterchat blogger Guilltherme here! 🙂 3d Modeling is just a form of art that can make your imagination explode and manifest your dreams! But…can I really print Anything? Well, this little post have the answers that you are looking for! The Answer of one million dollars is… NO. 3D Printers need to […]

Expanding your skills and getting more out of your 3d Printer. Part 1

3d Printing as a hobby is great. With so many 3D Printers available these days just about anyone can get one. Maybe you bought yours to expand a hobby, add to your business or just wanted to play around with this new tech. They have become a large part of how we design and build […]

Autodesk to .STL

Autodesk to .STL STL basically is a standard file that is designed using basic structural units for modeling software. Software such as CAD functions on the principle of 3d modeling of various shapes. All the shapes are optimized using triangular units that determine the final outcome of the design. Triangular shapes determine the faceting of […]

What are G- codes and how 3D printers use it

What are G-Codes and how 3D printers use it 3D printers fall under the category of computerized numerical control (CNC) machine. These are the computer aided manufacturing machines in which different tools are used to perform different operations and are controlled by a specific numerical controlled programming language called G-codes. As 3D printing is an […]

Don’t waste material add support efficiently

Don’t waste Filament add support efficiently when 3d-printing When it comes to print in the air, FDM printing technology has a lot of challenges of course those objects are difficult to print, that’s why we need to add material support for the best printing quality. Fortunately open-source save’s the day, there’s a free tool called > […]

How To Rate Your 3D Printing Filament

How To Rate Your 3D-Printing Filament With 3D printing, a good filament can make the difference in your print job. 3D printers can share horror stories about their experiences with bad filament. While there are ways to test filament with expensive mechanical testing equipment, I wanted to develop a way to test filament at home. […]

Arduino Part 1–The ins & outs

What is it? Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You […]

How to Print in Multiple Materials with a Single Extruder

The one disadvantage of a single nozzle machine is that you can only print in a single colour or material, or can you? Well there is a more manual way in where you can print in 2 colours or even materials with a single nozzle 3D-Printer. We can do this by setting our G-Code to […]

Testing Proto Pasta Conductive PLA with Snap Circuits

In a previous blog I wrote a review of Proto Pasta’s Conductive PLA filament. For that review I just looked at the printing properties of the material. I liked how Conductive PLA printed, and it had a smooth matte black finish. Texture wise it does feel silkier than normal PLA. When I discovered that the […]

Craftware Slicer Overview & Showdown

So there are many slicers on the web these days : Cura, Slic3r, KISSlicer and the ‘new’ kid on the block : CraftWare. CraftWare is a free slicer made by CraftUnique primarily for their Craftbot Plus printer range however (just like the others ) it works with just about any printer that accepts G-Code. So […]

Slicers: Which one to use?

A few minutes ago I was rolling into my fb timeline and found this post about a comparison made between the most common slicers: Slic3r – http://slic3r.org/ Cura – https://ultimaker.com/en/products/ Simplify3D – https://www.simplify3d.com/ Craftware – https://craftunique.com/craftware To evaluate these slicers, Angus (the guy in the video) choose these topics: – STL Loading Speed – Usability […]

Laying out 3D Prints in Cura Slicer

Laying out 3D Prints in Cura Slicer When it comes to laying out 3D prints in our slicing program, one of the most important things to consider is how overhangs and bridges will be supported. In all slicer programs, there is a way to control the amount and geometry of the support material used. On […]
