>What CAD software should I use?
Variants of professional parametric CAD programs such as Solidworks (lol paying for software), Fusion360, Inventor, Onshape, TinkerCAD, and AutoCAD may be free depending on your profession, level of piracy and definition of ''free''.
Most anons use Fusion360, but some /g/oobers prefer OpenSCAD or FreeCAD. If you want to do mesh free-forming and modeling, Blender is alright. Also while not necessarily a design program, Meshmixer (free) can be extremely useful for tweaking models to print.

Am I fucked?
>>
>>2506415
It's plastic, not cobalt 60. One time is fine.
>>
>>2506415
Ok, listen very carefully: you need to weigh your part, and compare that to what your slicer says it should weigh, then weigh the pile of dust, and figure out how much is missing from the pile based on that. Now measure the volume of your room, and draw a picture of EXACTLY where you were in it with your orientation, and draw the direction of the wind gust too. Now, take the surface area of your window opening, and using a PAID weather app, work out the closet representation of the wind speed at that time, do a fluid current analysis to find what it was AT your windows position, and then figure out the volume of air that came in.
This is all pretty simple shit, I just PRAY that wasn't PLA you were working with, or you might as well skip all of this and start making funeral preparations, which you will have to do in order to ensure that they double vacuum bag you and bury the carcass 12 feet down in a fully clay lined grave with a reinforced concrete cap that features some ominous sculptures to scare away any future civilizations from digging there and contaminating anyone in the future.

Bros, I keep having a bit of minimal stringing and I'm not sure what to tweak further to prevent it.
I calibrated my printer by following every single calibration guide on Teaching Tech's website, including printing temp, retraction and linear advance. I also use coasting, and have it honed in just right to where the end of a layer doesn't lack material, meaning between the end of one layer and the start of the next, the extruder should be experiencing minimal internal pressures (and that's BEFORE retraction).
I also use combing as much as possible. Travels over 3 mm get retracted even when combing.

My retraction is as high as it can be based on the instructions provided with the all-metal hot end I use (3.5 mm).
I print PLA at 205 °C, that gives me perfect performance in the bridging and overhang calibration tests.

Any recommendations? Is there something else I should be tweaking?
>>

>>2506532
Hmm, I see this guy pop up on my feed once in a while of printers he's build and has github for them. He has mentioned a few printers that don't use a heated bed (maybe all of them dont)
https://www.youtube.com/@Rolohaun

But, his most recent videos shows 3d printer out of pla+ that may work for you.
>>
>>2506542
Fan speed, don't have it at 100% especially if you're printing @ 205C

start @ 35% and increase if it shows prints deforming most of my printers use 35% and the only one I have is at 100% is my kingroon when I use the "fast" printing profile.
>>
>>2506603
Oh? Huh, didn't see that coming at all.
I'll try tweaking the fan speed.

One issue is that my fan needs an initial high speed to get going. It won't start spinning if the speed setting goes from 0% to 30%.
At least in Cura, I can only have 2 settings, a fan speed for initial layers (usually 0) and then the speed for the rest of the print.
I could set the first speed to be fast enough to get the fan spinning, then have the low speed setting for the rest of the print. Though that means I would have active fan cooling active for the first few layers, which I believe is not great?

Any suggestions on how to tackle this?
>>
>>2506600
Sweet, danke anon
>>
Damn, it is surprisingly hard to deal with the "minimum start speed" issue for fans.
It's pretty common for fans to have a minimum start speed of 60% or more, I'm surprised standard solutions don't exist to allow people to circumvent the issue when the target is a fan speed below the necessary start speed.

>>2506603
How do you do it?

I'm using G-code post processing (same sort of processing done for temperature towers) but this is cumbersome as hell to do every single time I slice a file.
>>
>>2506631
well I guess its my fault, start at the minimum fan speed that will have your fan actually spin up,

what printer do you have that the part cooling fan wont kick on @ 35%? I dont use cura anymore, I user superslicer so im not familiar with it anymore.
>>
>>2506631
>I'm using G-code post processing
oh Im not familiar with this process.
>>
>>2506633
Ender 3 v2, but it's modded, not stock fans. I'm using noctuas with buck converters.
I don't think it's at all uncommon for people to mod their printers with super quiet noctua fans.

Stock fans for this printer are louder than a plane taking off.

To be clear the fan can spin at low speeds, it just needs to be lowered into that speed from a higher one.
The initial inertia is high, meaning this fan won't actually start spinning unless it's set to 70% (it just keeps twitching without actually spinning otherwise).
But after that initial 70% gets it going, it can go down to high 20% and keep spinning.

Just needs that initial oomph.
>>
>>2506636
At least in Cura, there's the possibility to "post-process" your Gcode with scripts.
In this case I'm using a script that allows you to set a particular setting based on what layer you're on. So in my case I set speed at 0% for layers 1 to 3, then layer 4 does 80%, then layers 5 and above do 35%.

Are FDM still shit? How is Resin as far as strength go? I want 1:1 scale under 1000. I hate PETG, melts in the car if it gets hot enough. Maybe a saturn for smaller resin parts? Come on guys whats the latest and greatest for under $1K, maybe that giant creation Ender 5 or whatever the fuck it was called.

I printed a gondola but the leg on the right fell off. I was printing at only 20% infill so I might need to increase that. filament is ABS+ on an Ender 3 v2 pro. also he is a sad gondola because there is some excess filament around his eyes. anyway to fix that?

support material like >>2506818 said
leg falling off on removal is layer adhesion was bad. I doubled my wall count and had a lot better luck with this as opposed to infill.

last you can print him on his back for a better front/face. ymmv as you get a lot of support on the back to clean up.

I'm printing xmas gifts. In pic related there's a lamp.
I'm printing with:
>Ender 3 pro
>Sunlu PLA white (I'm not liking it)
>213°C
>50°C for raft and first layer, then I turn off the bed

I'm experiencing lots of stringing and, as you can see, the interior of the print is quite a mess. Cleaning is hard and tirious because the blobs are really well attached.

Any clue where I can start to try to solve the problem?
I would try to decriese the nozzle to 200.

>>2506787
>Are FDM still shit?
no context on what you wanna do with it. How can someone reply?
>>
>>2506787
FDM is exactly as good as you are at it, so you need to learn to tune your machine if you want the really good results. Speaking of machines, tuning gets easier when you get one in the $1000 range, and harder when you hobble yourself with a $99 Microcenter Ender 3.
Do not spend $1000 on any kind of Ender, no matter what number it is. Get a Prusa or build a Voron, but it's looking like the Bambu X1 is the new choice for people as lazy as you.

Honestly, just looks bad. Only a little heavier than stock. Kind of like an exploded diagram version of what was there before. I did resonance testing and the thing that really slows it down is the bed. The head can go way faster with no problem, even with a heap of garbage on it.

If I ever get a Core XY, going to aim for light because that should be lightyears faster than a bedslinger with input shaping, just by design.

>>
>>2506989
Big nozzles can make sense on printers that don't move very fast, because you can just push more plastic in fewer moves at the same speed. As long as the hotend and cooling can keep up, of course.
>>
>>2506994
Why the underextrusion problem? Have you set your steps and calibrated? If you don't get the problem with a larger nozzle, then it shouldn't be the fan or the hotend. Should 100% be the extruder.

I’m trying to 3d print some mirrors for my car. They cost over 1k and are really rare so it takes forever to find them and get them shipped from Japan. I have the exterior designed but I’m a bit stuck on the part on the inside that lets you manually adjust the mirror. Anyone know if there are already files made of it? Or a what I should look at to reproduce. The original is super hard to get good detailed pictures of. Also most online are the electric kind so they aren’t helpful.
>>

If you're committed, then maybe disassemble your one good mirror. Then you know for sure how it works and can take orthographic pictures of the internals to model with.

>>
>>2506978
there is so much wrong with this one, check if the slicer is set to 0.6mm instead of 0.4mm and get a better profile.
Do the usual routine of:
1. estep calibration
2. flow rate calibration
3. having the right profile
4. and turn down temp because thats a lot of stringing

why are you using a brim ? your print bed looks very fancy.
>>
>>2507017
>Should 100% be the extruder.
Oh yes forgot this culprit too, add it to >>2507110
check for actual cracks on the extruder. Mine had broken and was giving no tension to the filament. the black does a good job of hiding it.

Why so you could have and ugly, outdated piece of technology kludged to the side of your printer? Or even worse, sitting next to it with an ugly cable? The Raspberry Pi is an elegant solution, it's just that prices were a bit high for a while, but they are starting to drop pretty fast.

I printed some sun glass holders for my car and my car usually stays in the shade. The temperature inside the car, no matter what, fucks over PLA. The thing 'uncoiled' from the heat. I will retry with PETG because i dont think my humble 3v2 can handle ABS.

Abrasive, i know, but I need white, sorry.

I'll try your suggestions. Thanks.
I'm taking some time to perform some maintenance on the printer. Looks like the nozzle was quitete worn out and the brass extruder gear too. The z axis calibration is messed too. It prints 4% higher.

Everithing else looks fine, so I'll change the worn out parts, recalibrate everithing ans I will hope for the best.

>turn off power loss recovery
I'm using octoprint and I don't think my old E3 have loss recovery anyway. What should I do?
>>
>>2507206
>octoprint
I think then you dont need to worry about that. I have never used octoprint (even bought a rpi, rpi camera and a spare tab to use it) so anons who do use it can tell you better.

if you take care of everything else like you listed before, please please please do e steps and flow rate calibration for your brand of filament, it helps a lot. if you are changing the extruder gear, you will need to do the e steps bydefault. Good luck anon. Post results. I have a few spare nozzles, some 0.6 and some 0.8mm. I think I might switch to those sometime too.

measuring error
each step is a certain ° rotation of the spindle. The spindle has an exact and uniform pitch averaged over its length. You can calculate that shit.
If it is off there is either flex in the system, you measured wrong or you are loosing steps. Those are all mechanical faults tho

Can somebody explain to me what is the best, cheapest hot end upgrade I can get for my original Ender 3?

I have already gotten a SKR Mini E3 V3 and a MKS Pi to convert the printer to run Klipper (still waiting on them tho). I will also do input shaping with the ADXL345.

Will pic related work for printing faster with a 0.4 or a 0.6 mm nozzle? I imagine I need to print some adapter bracket or whatever in order to get it to mount on the X axis carriage?

Someone should make something like a printable check list for daily maintenance, monthly maintenance and long term maintenance because these are precision machines that are very sensitive to change and not that robust. So stuff like PID tuning, e steps, flow rate, belt tensin setting etc.

I can get behind this but i will need help from all of yous. And please sticky that website where you can get your custom marlin from. I dont know what the "A" type stepper motor is so i am stuck there lmao.

If they are really industrial and focused on 'large sized' prints, why stop at 1mm nozzles ? why not go all the way to idk 1,5 mm or make new filament for bigger prints because this will be too fucking slow otherwise.

>>2507802
There's no way I would consider a machine that expensive unless it did that single continuous carbon coextrusion thing. But then I'm not considering one that expensive at all, because you could buy a warehouse full of lovingly used CNC mills for that.

Its just whats commonly supported as the largest size in most slicers.

The point of this machine is to make parts out of PEEK. And the only reason you'd use such a filament is because whatever you're trying to make needs to be complex and extremely strong, so with that build volume 1mm is a good high point in terms of resolution.

Been having some trouble with my resin printer with mid to large sized parts. Anycubic Photon, 0.02mm layer height, 1.6s exposure time, calibration parts print fine. But once I do any sort of larger solid part I get this weird glossy looking surface finish as if the resin isn't cured. Things I've tried,
>replacing the IPA used to clean my parts
>increasing cleaning time up to 8 minutes (anycubic cleaning station)
>let the part completely dry off before starting the curing process
>cured for up to 15 minutes
Things I'm going to try
>scrubbing the part with a brush in addition to the 8min cleaning cycle
>a new resin, currently using anycubics plant based grey

I bought a used ender 3 about a month ago for my first printer. I added a bl touch then had to buy a new main board, so I got the silent board for it. I'm using prusaslicer with pretty much stock settings and for the most part most of my prints come out pretty decent other than these pimples I get on the first dozen or so layers. I'm using PLA+ with the manufacturers recommendations of 220 nozzle and 60 bed temps.
how do I get rid of these bumps anons?
>>
>>2507931
yes it's for an non v2 Ender 3.

I imagine that the original one is all-metal as well? Because apart from the all-metal variant on Ali, there is a PTFE lined one and a 4.1 mm bore one that allows you to push the bowden tube all the way in, which seems completely retarded.

I have a custom fan duct that supports the V6 and the Volcano, so I should be good? Do I need an adapter bracket or something in order to get it to mount where the old hot end mounts I imagine?
>>
>>2507551
I’ve never heard of ASA I’ll try it. I would say just buy one here. Importing is such a hassle and jdm/right hand drive makes getting certain parts harder cause you have to get it from Japan and can’t source it from other places. For example a dash is going to cost you insane money having to find and import. Plus the gauge cluster isn’t going to work with usdm ones so you’ll have to learn how to work on the electronics if you ever need to fix it with American parts.

>>2508152
I thought you're not supposed to pop hot PETG parts off of textured PEI or it'll mess with the print surface?
>>
>>2508155
No the thing about PETG and PEI/glass is that you don't wanna print PETG on a clean, flat surface. PEI first came in nice flat sheets and people would print PETG directly to it and PETG would just rip the sheet off because it stuck so well.
You still needed to use glue or hairspray as a "releasing agent" so the PETG didn't fuse to the bed.
So they came out with textured PEI, which you can print PETG straight to and pop off without worry. Textured PEI is really the easiest catch-all for filaments, other than when you want a glossy bottom finish or whatever reason then you'd use the smooth side.

If you're talking to someone about 3d printing and they suggest either of these two things to address your issue, then they have absolutely zero fucking idea what they're doing and probably just should have bought a prusa:

Original one? If you mean your first link just select all metal.

If you are talking about the original hotend the red one on creality printers, no, its not. The PTFE tub goes all the way to the nozzle, thats why I said if you want to keep the original red hotend, buy a chimera all metal heatbreak.

anyways, you will need a mount on the collar of the hotend
>https://www.printables.com/model/76111-e3d-minimalist-for-v6-volcano-on-creality-cr10s-en

And more than enough to make your nozzle red hot.

Anyway, making metals red hots can mess with crystalline structure, can mess the alloy and superficial treatments. Terjal shocks can create problems too.
In short: don't.

Melted plastic behave kind of a liquid, so you just need a tissue to wipe the nozzle clean.

Formfutura Volcano PLA is stated to be able to sustain more than 95°C once annealed.
PLA should be able to sustain ethanol and maybe gasoline but I don't know for how long.

That said, 3D printed objects are not really suited to contain liquids and sustain high temperature, nor to be used for critical application because of common brittle failures.

I can't figure out your aim, but I can guess it's not a good idea.

>>
>>2508760

Lots of plastics (PLA is one) behave like glass. They are not solid nor liquid, but amorphous materials. Once "melted", past the glass transition temperature, they are viscous liquid.

PLA is able to wet a tissue, so in the context "behave like a liquid". It can also "wet" the nozzle, but it can "wet" the tissue more than the nozzle, so you can clean one with the other.
Glass can't soak tissues, and it wouldn't even be able to wet your nozzle.

In few words, you are a bit retarded, or trolling.

Baby, honey, sweetheart my prints were going just fine, too. I had maxed out the capabilities of the stock Ender 3. The only path to improvement was to upgrade and modify it. I started with a silent board. Then I did an all-metal extruder. Next I'll add an automatic leveler, then a better metal heat break. Finally, I'll get around to setting up octoprint so I can record my prints and control them remotely.

After I've done all of that, I'll look at dual extrusion for soluble supports and multicolor prints.

well if that guy is using tape for adhesion to such an extent that he's questioning the quality of his "rolls of tape" when shit falls off, then he's asking the wrong questions. The cheapest printers around come with beds one can easily print on without needing tape or glue or whatever.

the right question would be "how do I print without needing to use tape to get proper adhesion?"

For stock settings on basic materials, not really. For abrasive materials, high temp materials, or high flow applications, a good nozzle suited to the task can make a big difference. E.g. a CHT nozzle can about double the max volumetric flow rate all else equal, a gem nozzle can last hundreds of times as long as brass when printing carbon fiber.

Maybe the picture wasn't the best, but it still has perfect adheshion, it's just that the lines go a little bit up near the edges. I suspect it's due to it slowing down or speeding up on the other direction after it hits the edge.
>>
>>2509941
Oh, on the infill by the edges? Could be a Pressure Advance thing (sometimes called Linear Advance), not sure how to set that on an Ender, but I think Cura has that now, and I believe all the Slic3r variants have it too. You also might have the Line Overlap set too high, I believe default is 5%, although I use 8% on my DD extruder.
Before you try all that though, make sure you aren't over extruding, i.e. you get exactly 100mm of filament when you ask it to do 100mm.
>>
>>2509941
One last thing: the first layer can be a little weird since you can have varying amounts of squish depending on your z-offset, so if it doesn't do that on your top layers id just call it good, of you can raise your Z by a cunt hair or two. It's only the first layer though, so it will be invisible unless you like printing single layer wall art.

There are two possibilities: you are using your 3D printer to do practical things or you are into into 3D printer as a hobby.
In the first case: try to understand your needs and pursuit them. Speed, precision/quality, size,
In the second case go resin. Just to try something different.

I've done a little of everything. Currently designing functional parts to put together a modular atx dimension board for mounting sbc's in a regular pc tower. But most of my usage has been hobbyist level, just printing off knick-knacks for friends.
Really leaning towards the dual headed printer, just because I wouldn't have to worry about dealing w/ god awful supports anymore.
But I also kind want to print off nsfw whores at some point, and resin would be best for that. I'll probably go with a dual head first, I guess.
is the Sovol sv04 decent for its price range, or are there other dual headed printers I should be looking at in the ~$500 range?

Thickness of normal paper is about 0.1 to 0.2mm. You can get thinner stuff, but it would probably be more expensive.

>>
>>2510060
The best part about making useful things is that filament lasts forever because you don't feel compelled to print stuff.
You design what you need then print it out
However if you want to blow through the 10 rolls of filament you got through the $100 deal between Fremover or ILLDMax and do something for your mom who's into sewing and crafts, you can go print out that gridfinity stuff so she'll have organizers for all the thimbles and thobbins and whatever the hell else she gets high off of.
I had an anycubic vyper and really enjoyed it.
Sent it back before the return window was closed because I was suspect about it's longetivity. I had a printer where I broke a part and decided to buy a new printer, but felt the shame of being able to fix it yet not fixing it.

V6 works fine to start, but I went with a Dragon HF for the one handed nozzle changing, and the fact that a Voron can easily outrun just about any hotend ESPECIALLY when you are running a 0.6mm or 0.8mm nozzle.

I've been debating about getting a 3d printer for a while now, and I figure since cyber Monday is coming up, it's a good time.
I'd made some notes about different models and I'd basically decided on a voxelab aquila x2. they're like 160$. one concern I had was about the chip they use. people talk about it having an H32 chip which means it's incompatible with some modding shit and that you want an N32 one.
I think it's a crapshoot but people say you can just send back your H32 one and try again.
they do sell an "S2" model for 180$ which has the N32 chip.
I don't know how much that matters or if that's worth paying for.
I'm not against dicking around with the machine to get it "excellent", but Ive been hesitating on buying one at all because there are a ton of opinions to sift through.
what do you think I ought to do? pull the trigger on the X2? pay 30$ more for the S2? something else entirely?

Any CADchads want to help me design this thing? It's a bathroom hanger. I want this to be a 3 pieces modular hanger, so that we can stack as many as we need by just printing additional bases and supports. It's mostly done, but I can't think of a good way to merge the bottom support to the top one. Ideally, it would be something that you could just attach together, and the weight would tighten it, and also somehow prevent the two supports from sliding to the sides and detaching (of course).

Also, I haven't yet printed the top support, but it should work. It keeps the base from falling off from the bottom by the widening at the bottom of the support and a slant which keeps the support from falling off by the sides. I did print an earlier version of this, and I can say the supports are strong enough to hold over 2 liters of shampoo plus whatever, but it was not modular and it finally broke when someone tried to clean it and it fell on the floor. So this is the time for an upgrade.

I can share the step file if anyone is interested in helping.
>>
>>2510318
I would start by making the vertical parts not absolute stick tier, and your hook at the top has absolutely no structural integrity at all for a printed part.
Bigger radii on the parts where the bottom of the tray meet the fence portions.
Print it and you'll see what you did wrong and then figure out how to make it better next time

one more autistic piece of advice: where is your shelf going? think about the shower and how people maneuver in a tight space
a lot of showerhead caddies exist because people don't physically stand under the shower head
yours looks like it goes on a wall, denying space and creating an obstacle to bump in to
a lot of people put things on their shower window as well, or the shower walls will sometimes come with a recessed shelf

Two things come to mind:
Will it tumble?

>>
>>2510358
>>2510362
>Will it tumble?
With that base, it 100% will.
Doesn't need to be huge, but the length is not there; this will be easy to rock, which can make it feel cheap.

This will also be disgusting in use, it doesn't drain water being flat on top, the LV will catch water and soap scum, what does run through the holes runs along the edge of the base, it's gonna be nasty.
Dish it and add a drainage channel from the center-most point to make this significantly better.

Neat design, someone's going to love it.

I was told that putting alcohol in an ultrasonic bath is a safety hazard, so I was wondering what people's cleaning process for resin printing. What I normally do is put the prints in a glass jar full of alcohol and then shake it up, then strain the print and put it in a bowl to run under the sink. This takes a lot of time though as I have to go from across my apartment to keep doing this. I have an ultrasonic bath from my job, can I just do the alcohol shake in the jar and then put it in to the bath? Or do the bath first then alcohol?

just use fucking glass or PEI or PEX or a magnetic bed, jackass, zero need for "tape"
It's the same as those people that smear glue on their print beds to improve adhesion instead of properly tuning the printer

>I was told that putting alcohol in an ultrasonic bath is a safety hazard
Because alcohol is flammable, especially when heated and agitated. You can totally do it if you want through. But glass is transparent to ultrasound in water, so the cleaner will work if you just put the (closed) alcohol jar in the ultrasonic cleaner filled with water or whatever cleaning solution is normally there. An alternate is a magnetic lab stirrer, which would give you something functionally similar to the cleaning function of the Prusa CW1.

hey any idea what might be going wrong anons?
200 printing temp
60 bed temp
30 mm/s print speed
15 mm/s initial layer
transmission ratio is 106, I was told to put it up from the stock because the ender 3 v2 has an under-extrusion problem
been leveling this bed repeatedly for some time now
.4 mm brass nozzle, the only recent change has been changing the extruder to be all metal recently and installing a filament guide
trying to print a filament spool holder that isn't attached to the chassis
I dont mind printing slower/longer so long as the print is under 24 hrs and the quality is nice but I know this isnt a speed problem
also fuck this captcha holy shit

Hey guys, new to 3d printing and looking to get a printer. I read the general and there are 4 listed for under $500. I was looking to spend about that much, so wondering which of these is the best? Thanks.

Buy a Prusa Mini unless you enjoy working on mechanical challenges, then just buy whatever chinkshit printer has the best modding community (it's the Ender 3 Pro).

Can you tell me a bit more on the Prusa Mini? Looks interesting features wise but it’s out on like a gib arm
>>
>>2510712
Intro model Prusa FDM printer. Compared to the Mk3, it's cheaper with a slightly smaller build volume. Less versatility with materials due to bowden rather than direct drive, but handles most non-flexibles. Not as robust for 24/7 print farm use but pretty good for out of the box hobby reliability. As with the Mk3, a big selling point is that it works out of the box with no fiddling or aftermarket parts needed to print well. It also has a big community of users for support and mods.

If you want to get to printing and don't mind the price, it's something to consider. If you want to tinker or are on a tighter budget, one of the cheaper options that do best with upgrades may be the way to go.

Solidworks or Inventor if I'm pirating? Already used Inventor before but I heard they're similar. Anything to watch out for, viruses a big issue? Don't say use Fusion360 or FreeCAD, I hate Autodesk and I'm too dumb for FreeCAD.

Good evening sirs, I'm trying to print and build the clock from this thingiverse build:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:328569

but I'm struggling to find where I can source things like the 1.5 - 3mm pins.
Any recommendations on where I can look for parts that can't be 3D printed?
>>
>>2510757
It you're too poor to buy Solidworks or Inventor, then you're probably too dumb for those too.
>>
>>2510765
Try searching for 1.5mm rod
All I can find is stainless though

Tungsten Nozzles: worth it or overpriced nonsense? I'll be running some cf nylon soon.
>>
>>2510803
>some cf nylon
Do you mean tungsten or tungsten carbide? Tungsten carbide is a lot harder and more wear resistant, and should actually last through multiple kilos of cf filament. Tungsten would have better heat transfer than hardened steel but probably a shorter life, which is already short enough with cf filament. Whether any of those is worth it depends on how much you ant to print. A cheapo brass nozzle would last for a single small print without issue.
>>
>>2510810
I'm going for wear resistance so carbide is what I want, but the descriptions I've found of nozzles so far has been something of a crapshoot.
>>
>>2510812
>so carbide is what I want
There are also ruby and diamond nozzles from various manufacturers. The principle of a very hard nozzle material works fine. Production quality would naturally depend on the manufacturer.

>extruder clogs

>the heat break is full of sticky grey stuff that doesn't want to come out

What is this?
I assume it's melted, polluted filament that's built up in there and not some adhesive for the bowden tube or something, right? Should I be worried about getting it all out to make sure my bowden tube seals the inside properly?

i am now having the same problem that the raging anon earlier ITT was having trying to get the press-fit extruder gear off
pic related me after going insane trying to get it off
>>
>>2510803
I got a Bozzle Nozzle which is currently the most badass nozzle on the market.

The price seems insane at $80, but consider the fact that it will never, ever wear out. The Bondtech CHTs at $20/each are disposable in comparison.

Thanks for the advice, I tried to improve upon it. I think to make it less wobbly I'm going to try to print it with like 25 bottom layers. Not much I can do about the drainage in the LV without making it look weird

putting a fan on hot pei won't hurt it.
putting hot pei in a freezer won't hurt it.
you're going to be fine.
>>
>>2509937
no clue what the other anons are on about, that's clearly a z-calibration (offset or bed level) issue
the nozzle should be ever so slightly further away from the bed
>>
>>2510859
Part of the deal with getting a cheapo printer is having to deal with issues that arise from cost-saving measures. The specifics may vary, but they're usually there.
>>
>>2510873
The anon above had said that "as long as it's borosilicate" such things would be OK. The implication being that non-borosilicate glass (which is much more vulnerable to heat shock) might be damaged by severe cooling measures. But yes, PEI on steel isn't bothered by heat or cold at all in that range.

What demonic entity has possessed my Ender 3 v2 to cause this shitshow?
I've printed several things recently with zero issue.

>adaptive layers off
>layer height 0.2 mm
>combing and coasting on
>FW retraction (using cura extension to force G10/11 instead of extruder motions)
>z-hop 0.2 mm
>PLA
>cubic subdivision infill
>50 mm/s speed

Especially the fuzz on the inner surface, why on earth is there any fuzz to begin with? The head doesn't travel outside the skin at all as you can see on the left image.

What filament brand/material are you using?
>>
>>2510068

What do you mean?

"Ornament und Verbrechen" - A. Loos
"less is more" - L. Mies van der Rohe
"less is a bore" - R. Venturi

3D printers are clearly Venturi's followers.
>>
>>2510944
Means he battered his lead screw with white lithium grease asif it was cake icing
>>
>>2510880
I think I'm zeroing on the issue. Setting FW retraction Z-hop to 0 mm in the printer solved the fuzz issue 99%.

Rage Anon here. This is what worked for me in the end:

https://youtube.com/shorts/rbO81hLkxNc

It may potentially damage the motor but the gear was so mangled by the time I found that video that it had to come off no matter what. I accepted that the more I fucked with it, the more likely I was going to have to buy a new motor entirely.

The gear puller is really the safest solution because it isolates the force gradient to the gear and the top of the motor shaft entirely. Any leverage, torque, force, etc, applied to the motor housing while also applying force to the gear itself creates the possibility that a force differences between the gear, the shaft, and the motor will develop. If those force differences are too great, damage could be done to the bearings or other parts inside the motor.

Dremeling the gear off is probably the second best solution presented here.

Could a kind anon tell me the resistance value for the second from the right resistor by the extruder driver, on an Ender 3 v4.2.2 Mainboard? (marked R19)

Why 3v2s specifically? I had never heard that before, is this common knowledge?

I have a 3v2, looking at random youtubers i was informed to turn z hopping off to get rid of nasty blobs that you see on prints and it worked. Could be for v2 style machines ? idk
