Yeh you have to go through the registration and just click the bit that's say your are not using it for resale etc chuck it in Google and it will come up.

Modeling wise I just had a play and watched some YouTube videos, if I want to do something new I Google it and there is normally a video showing you how to do it. Spend the time learning the sketch tools then in most cases it extruded the object and then a few bits to finish. Also have a look and get your head around slicing that's the make or brake and you need to do that even if you use thingiverse. I use Cura as mcanter said and it find it easy enough. I used default to start with and I have now started to play with support settings and bits and bobs. It can get a bit overwhelming bit I just try and stick to one thing at a time, i.e I printed that item that way but can I improve it but changing that setting?? And then see how you get on . Also spend the time learning bed level and esteps etc calibration is the key

I have cura downloaded but havent messed with it yet. I got mattercontrol because it was described as software that has everything included, build, .stl repair, slicing and printing all under one roof. I got cura too because it seems to be THE fave for slicing.

Default Re: 3D printers

got it together and running.



running its first test print





gotta get the bed height and z offset set up though... I get some weird smudges and i had some layering issues

the pattern looks like this most of the way around


but then theres two area that make these smudges


and the layers


I suppose the layering could have been the fact that the roll of blue I got super cheap, was in fact, super cheap... I paused the print after it broke twice and fed in the silver filament. that worked better.




pretty happy so far. It came used but has BLTouch auto level installed, an all metal hot end and all metal direct drive extruder and it runs on a bootloader with TH3D installed. It has lights installed, a mount for a camera, tool holder and bed leveling supports (although I need a couple bolts to attach those).

I forgot about the noise level thing. I read that the loudest part of this printer was the cooling fan and its true. This thing is super quiet, we watched movies in the front room while it printed the piece I pic'd and it wasnt loud enough to turn up the volume.

Ill be starting the cable chain mod and enclosure pieces as soon as I get the level set. swiping a few bolts for the bed supports from work so that should help firm things up a bit.

My enclosure slowly getting there. The hinges have been in print for 28hrs so far, nearly done then I can get all the little bits done. All the side panels are cut and sanded not sure if I'll paint them or just leave them. My 5 usb powered led light is all stripped ready to be fitted.
