Anyone want to upload a couple months of Artisans Guild or Loot Studio?
>>
Any advice for printing Imperial Knights? Common issues, supports that might get missed, any weirdness? Was thinking about printing an army of them with my PSM4K
>>
All right, same anon with the left-side issues.

I've leveled, releveled dozens of times at this point. When I was confident each time, I printed the Locust and still the left side fails. Whether I up the exposure time for the supports, or slow down the lift speed, or increase the lift height, the prints fail in the exact same way each time.

Curiously, the 'successful' locust on each of the jobs always has the same fail on its right radar fin, and this is after re-leveling between jobs, changing resin, changing settings.

I'm thinking now I might finally change the FEP. Sorry to turn this into a diary. Just hope someone following along finds this insightful in some way.
>>
>>81262970
Stupid question, have you flipped/rotated them around on the plate? Beyond that, new FEP seems like a decent solution
>>
>>81263030
So I've actually: rotated the plate around its z-axis 180 degrees; AND I have also tried to insert the vat "backwards" (so that the pour spout is in the back-left instead of the front-right).

This did not impact the outcome, and I got the exact same prints and issues. I'll take some time to install one of the two FEPs that came with my Photon S and see if maybe, just maybe, this changes things.

Yeah some can get fucking nuts. The worst part is that's still probably a good third of what GW would charge for the same thing, and at least if you oink up and paypig for the STL you can print as many as you want. Still though, that's way too much for some ones and zeroes.

How bad would it be if were to set up my printing station in my room? Air flow to the room isn't a problem since the the walls don't reach the ceiling for the whole house and I've got a door right behind the printers to open up, but do resin fumes linger, or do rise and dissipate?
I know i'm retarded for asking this to begin with, just want to know what level of retard i'm at.

You aren't paying for the ones and zeros, you're paying for the years of practice and education that it took to get that good, and the hours of development and prototyping that it took to make an stl that is ready to print right away without any work on your part. You sound just like the guys that complain about a mechanic that charges 100$ for a repair that "only took 30 minutes". You aren't paying for the minutes, you're paying for the years. And if it really bugs you that much then download Blender and make your own.

>>81267611
No, what you're paying for is a piece of artwork like on gumroad or cubebrush. Those are "just ones and zeroes" but nobody bats an eye at having to pay for them. Just because you can print a picture of Starry Night on your inkjet doesn't mean your input was in any way comparable to the original artist. Pay for things that you like if you want to see more of them.

You can scale models in the slicer programs as well. Make sure the model is standing upright and then check to see if the Z-axis size in mm lines up with what you're looking for. If it's below 28mm, change it to 28mm while you have the lock on.

It's true that they can be made in seconds, even if you have to start from scratch. The problem is, if you don't already know what you're doing, it's going to take hours to learn

>>81275636
Sure, the tutorial vid is only going to be a few minutes, but if you aren't familiar with the software, you're going to spend some time dicking around getting used to it all. Then the first base you make is going to take a while as you try to remember all the steps, Each one you make will get quicker, and you'll probably be making the last few in a manner of seconds or a few minutes, but the whole process getting to that point in most software is going to take more time than just watching a YouTube video a few minutes long.

Hi anons, I finally got my 3D printer calibrated and I’m looking for recommendations on a certain type of mini. A while ago a friend gave me these Stalker/Tarkov looking minis, and I’d like to print an opposing NATO-esque operator faction for them. Paid or not, anything that looks neat will do.
>>
Asking here because literally the only advice on the rest of the internet is "level your bed" or "calibrate e steps"

I have chronic underextrusion on an ender 3 v1. Been down all the usual paths. Bed is levelled, replaced glass with magnetic textured to be sure, can crank out esteps all day no change. no clogs in nozzle or bowden (replaced properly several times) Tested overheating the PLA (in case the issue is a shite thermistor) and hundreds of other related and unrelated tweaks.

I am at a complete loss. At this stage, I am going to "Ship of Theseus" this issue away. I have a new hotend assembly, and a new extruder in the mail. Along with new nozzles and more capricorn bowden tube.

If I replace the hotend assembly, and the extruder, and the issue persists, whats left?

Extruder stepper voltage? Firmware (currently th3d marlin)? Throw the shit in a lake? Sanctify the machine spirit? Hire an exorcist?

My ender 3 pro goes like a charm. I replace the nozzle and bowden every 200 - 300 hours of use. I just want to be able to print dark realms terrain at twice the speed.

>>81262733
If you're gonna hollow any parts, make sure you have a good drainage hole somewhere. Otherwise, the uncured resin's just gonna sit inside of there and rupture the model eventually. It's more of an issue with larger parts like anything to do with a knight or titan.

>>81277638

>>
>>81283432
Your exposure time and possibly lift speed is too high.
>>81284312
Delamination. Your raft is taller than the amount of base layers you have, so only a portion of the raft is properly overexposed.
Your 6 base layers at 0.05 means your raft should be 0.30mm tall, then you should add a few (3~ will do) transition layers for good measure.

Dog-brained women crafting ugly, glitter-infused jewelry pieces and elderly/autistic model train enthusiasts with a penchant for river crossings have been huffing lungfuls of resin fumes for literally decades, it was only when "le heckin' science!" reddit-types got involved that suddenly resin became the worst toxin known to man that apparently demands a class 1 clean room to so much as look at.
>>
>>81265430
I wouldn't try it.
>>
>>81286097
It's an environmental issue, sure, but it's more about resin fucking up your pipes. Pouring it down the drain means it accretes inside your water pipes, eventually clogging them and hardening in such a way that it can cause them to crack or burst.
>>
>>81277489
I'll take a pause of Splitgate to run you through it.
Your problem is the slicer.
I'm taking you are using Cura:
There's a shitton of combination of three things that can give over/underextrusion.
>Flow
>Speed
>Layer Height
Flow controls how much pla the extruder sends in.
More flow will give you more pla, less will give you less, of your calibrated e-step which should be %100.
If you lower the speed, you may need to lower the flow, if you increase the speed, you may need to increase flow.
But then there's height, The higher the height the more flow it will need, unless you are running low speed.

If you have underextrusion also on slow speed printing, try boosting your flow to %110.
All of this taking into account that your normal prints fails at certain height/fuck up your prints overall.

IF you can't even pass layer 1 and the first one is the only one failing, then apply what I'm saying to the hidden settings
>Initial layer flow
>Initial layer speed
>Initial layer height
As the first layer has it's own settings.
I'm running now on %110/20mm/0.22 for the first layer, %95/50mm/0.2 normal layer, and %115/80mm for infill. You can try it, but my machine is very moody, I don't know how's yours.

My prints keep coming out of my photon mirrored. It's an easy thing to work around - I'll just mirror everything in my slicer before I print - but I don't get why it's even happening to begin with.

I've replaced the FEP. I releveled ensuring the paper did not move. I shook the resin. I did exposure tests to hone in my settings. I followed all the setting advice I have gotten here. I even replaced the god damn screen.

>>81289365
I think you might have a problem with your Z axis. Clean it off thoroughly by removing the carriage, and lube it with white lithium grease. The grease they pack these printers with is shit and goes gunky, and it can affect how precise your Z axis is.

At least it's worth a shot.
>>
>>81289365
There might be several causes:

1) Your software might be the issue - check with another slicer.

2) try increasing the supports on the blade if that's the only part that's failing. (ie. the opposite side, the dude himself looks fine) - the fact that the print looks fine from the dude's hand onward suggests that this might be the case. You might even need a support in between the dude and the blade itself, if this is the case.
>>
>>81289365
If you haven't dropped your bottom lift speed from 80mm/s to something closer to 40mm/s for a print that large, you're going to have a bad time.

For what it's worth the validation matrix is garbage since the base layers fuck with the results and the information you gather from it is very limited.

>>81288197
Thanks guys.

I had a spare stepper. I swapped out the Extruder stepper. And everything works now.

Current theory is that it was working fine without resistance (Extruding into air, extruding through the nozzle while testing) however once it had a decent amount of run time and some resistance from pressure in the nozzle it would just fuck off.

>>81288197
I had tested with Prusa and Cura. All the variables you mentioned I had tested. All my test prints were pushed through my known good ender 3 pro before testing on this one.

Thanks for the assist guys. I think typing out my problem focused my mind enough to spot the culprit.
>>
It seems like no matter how many times I try to level my plate, I keep coming up with the same failures on the left side. The exact same failures every time. I'm printing the same sliced file each time, and the errors are the same each time I reset the level.

When I'm leveling the plate, tightening the grub, I do my absolute fuckin best to gently apply pressure evenly on all sides of the plate but still when I tug the paper it NEVER seems to be equally level. There always feels like slack on one side. So when I attempt to put *more* pressure on that side, then nothing feels level.

I'm pulling my hair out over here, how can I POSSIBLY be leveling this thing incorrectly, but CONSISTENTLY in the exact same *wrong* way every time? The table my printer on is level. I considered replacing the FEP thinking it was too loose, but my current tension came in at 275Hz (and the bolts on the Photon S vat won't tighten any further).

Since I am printing the same thing every time, I've been able to observe that the failure is a rounding of certain angles (and the base) which should be straight/flat/angular. I had a perfect Locust and a failed locust, but subsequent prints provide me with a failed locust, and an imperfect Locust with rounded angular features. The same imperfections persist across multiple level attempts.

bros, any insight would be valuable.
>>
>>81291054
Could be your slicer, have you changed any profile settings?
>>
>>81291103
I haven't. This was a file I sliced in Chitubox and haven't modified since the first use (in which one of the Locusts printed beautifully and the other failed at the supports, see pic).

After trying other prints with Lychee or Chitubox and noticing other failures of the left side, I came here and got the leveling advice. So of course I went back, leveled, and tried to print what I thought was a success, even upped the exposure time (in the Printer itself) hoping that might cure the support issue.

I printed two minis in a single run from a Chitubox sliced file and they were both great. So after all these failures, and reconfigurations of the machine and bed level, I went back to that miniature and tried to print her three times instead of twice (next post to have that failure).

So the first time I used this character (I saved her with the support setup so I could easily go back), I printed her twice and both were flawless. So I said, okay...let's do her three times since I have the space on the plate. You can see how that turned out lol

recommendations for a small high quality resin ABS printer ?

I need the model to be as clean and high quality as possible (ideally 25 to 16 microns res)

but don't care about /dump stat
- plate size
- speed
>>
>>81291054
Lift speed to 60-50 or maybe lower could help, some people use lube in the fep too, I can't remember the brands.
>>
>>81291260
Oh damn, yes! I did in fact try to lower the lift speed and - unfortunately - my prints came out worse somehow D:

I've read that spraying the FEP with some dry lubricant PTFE. I've seen people in various places say they've even used RainX or WD-40. I'm thinking I'll give it a shot - what have I got to lose? ahaha

No specific model requests, but I'm curious about your workflow going from Daz to a printable STL is; I explored that at one point as a way to do custom minis, but it looked like a lot of post processing getting stuff like clothes to work.
>>
>>81291054
Place sandpaper on a flat surface then rub your build plate across it. Do you notice the sandpaper scuffs evenly scratching your build plate, or just one side? It's possible the plate itself isn't level. Very rarely some of them can be bent.

So, just asking: now that I stumbled my way through ripping a working fbx, would this be the place to ask for advice on how to use Blender to get a somewhat-EamanG-adjacent stl?

Once I Displace through the normal textures, the model gets gutted beyond belief, and Remesh has crashed before getting to something usable on every computer I've tried it on.

Either he does an inordinate amount of reconstruction by hand, or there is some magic combination of modifiers that I'm missing.
>>
>>81292355
Sculpt fur using the sculpting tab
>>
>>81292435

Yeah no, it's not just the fur (which turns out kind-of-ok): it's that every seam in the model comes apart with the combination of Subdivision+Displace (the former is necessary to give enough detail to the latter to work) and at that point all the king's horses and all the king's men can't put Humpty togHether again

You should check out the X axis calibration if your bed is perfectly leveled and you get fails on one side or the other.
Happened to me, the rigtht side was 0.1mm higher than the left side and that was enough to make the pla not stick
Sounds like your right side could be lower.

I just grabbed some P400 ultra fine sandpaper and put it on the most level and flat surface I could find in my house (checked with a level).

>>81293049
It's relatively common for a plate to be a *liiiiittle* uneven like that, but it's hard to tell from pictures alone. It's possible it could be the cause of your issues but also possible that the variation in your plate isn't nearly enough to cause full print failures.
No need to be shy with the sandpaper though. Mine came with some really coarse 120 grit sandpaper and I got it as even as I could. Just be sure to clean it after the sanding.

There's a bunch of sources out there

Thingiverse and cults3d are gonna be the simplest, just search and download, but the content is gonna be minimal in general.

More complicated are various filesharing sites, which a lot of have been shut down. Only advice here is lurk moar, but if you see weird strings of text you can decide those with base64 and ROT7 decoders depending how autistic the uploader is.

Best source is various telegram groups, an online group text message service. Finding stls there is literally as easy as searching for "stl telegram" but you need an account tied to a phone number. I recommend using a google voice number since telegram has a reputation, but it's not super illegal or anything.

Also, like the other anons said, if you have the money do buy stuff, making these stls isn't easy and if you buy something to share it you'll have the gratitude of a lot of anons.

It'll definitely be a good printer. Should print about as well as a 4k LCD printer of equivalent size. Only tradeoff is that it looks like it's kind of lacking in terms of its build quality, costs have clearly been cut to cover the cost of the expensive optical parts. If its your first printer, or you're looking to upgrade over a more basic 2k LCD printer it looks like a option, but it wouldn't make sense to get it over a 4K LCD printer or even a nicer 2K printer.

When they've got a 4k DLP printer at $500 then I'll poo my pants though.

>>
>>81300171
Those are some weird fails. Have you tried printing something else and seeing if it is giving you the same issues? Might not be a hardware/exposure issue, but maybe a busted slicing or file. Could try running a repair on the mesh and reslicing.

It looks like the sanding helped a bit, and you've lowered your lift speed.
From the picture it looks like the print is improving - but there are lots of things that can cause similar and compounding failures - and it's likely to fail in similar spots (because of the large cross-section of the print).

The next thing I would look to adjusting is temperature.
As the resin in the vat gets colder it gets more viscous. This causes more suction/pressure on the part as it moves up and down in the vat.

If you have a heat gun I would try gently heating the resin while gently stirring it in the vat before you start your print.
Don't be an idiot and spray resin everywhere with a hairdryer on high or get too close and melt the machine though.

I have to preheat my resin over winter. Once it's warm the curing process usually keeps it warm enough.

Use 3DBuilder; it does it automatically. Will parse any STL you import into it and auto-repair the mesh. I've had stellar luck with it myself.

You would probably be better off with a 4K printer, they’re not that much more expensive now. The wash and cure station is a convenience, you could wash it by hand and use a cheap UV lamp to cure it. Stay away from standard resin if you’re using the models to wargame, get tough or abs-like resin. I use siraya tech navy grey which works well.

If it's good quality, it's worth that. If the print is less than impressive, it's worth less than half. The resolution and the detail fidelity are the only things increasing time/cost, otherwise it's just plug-n-play that any schmuck with 200$ to burn could make ad nauseum.

First real attempt at 3D printing something, this is one of the free sample files from onepagerules Mummified Undead range. My brothers and I are new to this whole 3D printing thing and the one who understands it best thinks we might need a resin printer for these particular sculpts.
I'd like to justify purchasing more of these sculpts since they look fine to me in their previews but clearly we need to learn how to print better if I'm going to purchase anything.
We're using an ender3max printer with PLA material, using cura as the program, 0.16mm layer height because 0.12mm was warping, and speed was 50mm per second. We were printing PLA from the nozzle at 200C with the bed at 60C.
We don't remember the rest of the settings, but does anyone have any advice for getting these particular sculpts to come out better?
>>
>>81305719
You're never going to get fine enough details with a PLA printer when doing minis. It's better for terrain and large vehicles honestly. If you don't mind that, there are a few people here who swear by PLA and I'm sure they'll help you dial in as best you can.

Not looking to get super fine details, just looking to get it to print correctly without falling apart. The red parts are, according to cura, "missing or extraneous surfaces" and part of his bow just plain fell off.

We had a guy here printing minis with plastic and he had decent results but they aren't close to what a resin print do, these are printers to do other things, they are great to do terrain and they could work to do vehicles or titans if you sand that too.

>>81305920
I haven't ever used Cura; I use Chitubox myself, but it looks to me like you just need to add more supports. That looks like it's pre-supported for resin printing, not PLA. PLA needs different supports (and more of them in the case of something like this, as far as I know). If you can tack on additional supports, hit that top arm of the bow, and shore up all the red areas; those are places that are the "first layer" of a given part of the form and need to be shored up more. I'd add a bunch of thin supports along the bottom of the arrow and maybe 4-5 for the top arm of the bow, then try that.
>>
>>81306003
Any tips for putting good supports on? The only thing we can figure out is big wasteful cylinders.
>>
>>81306023
If you were using a program I was more familiar with I could help you in that regard; I'd advise hitting up youtube and seeing what's there. I have to imagine there are ways to create thinner supports; most other software seems capable of doing it.
>>
>>81306037
Well thanks for pointing us in the right direction, I'll try to remember to post the results when we do another print.
>>
>>81306046
Good luck anon. Wish I could have been more help.
>>
>>81306055
You might end up being more help if we decide to switch to that Chitubox thing, we're downloading it now just to test it out and see if we can set up supports easier since all the cura tutorials we found (I admit not a long look but still) all showed how to make the shitty wasteful cylinders we already knew how to make.
>>
>>81306103
Chitubox is pretty intuitive and there are a lot of available resources for it. I've never seen it referred to for PLA printing but I imagine it can do it; a slicer is a slicer, after all, and as long as your layer height is set at something your printer can manage then it should be fine.
>>
>>81306103
I just glanced at the available printers and there's a Creality section but I didn't see the Ender 3. I have an older version though so it might have been added more recently. My version is a year or so old I think.

And were you printing at 7 degrees or 18? Resin likes to be somewhat close to 20.
>>
>>81304475
If you don't have a specific reason to get grey resin, it's best to avoid it. It loves to separate.
>>
>>81305920
The red areas are overhangs that are over the set limit for unsupported overhangs and will struggle to print nicely. But anyway that's supported for resin printing, of course is no good for FDM.

It's more about how much slop you have in that part of the assembly but it's a really cheap upgrade, so why not give it a try?

>>81283227

Run a calibration test if you haven't already.
Try adding an extra mm or two to your lift height if your FEP is fine. Also slow the lift speed a tiny bit.

>>81307231
Hey, delamination can be from a few different things but I looked at your calibration and you have some room to bump it up, so I'd suggest going upwards to 3.4, check your model orientation, and shore up the spots where you're seeing the delamination if you can.

consider to try a different model.
learn abit about the software and how your printer works on that.
After you have some better understanding of all the settings...come back to this bust and it will probably turn out okay.
(to me it looks like you need more supports and print it slower)
but im also new to this....

My models turned out great so far.
I had a few fails but the first print ever was an amazing miniature.

>>81307497
Hollowing it is the correct thing to do, especially with a print that big. Otherwise it'll be too heavy to lift with the supports you have.
You're adding drain holes too after you hollow it though right?

>>81307497
Print a no supports needed calibration model. If you can print a calibration model you just need to get gud at slicing.

>>81305719

You'd honestly do better quality wise if you printed at around .08, that's my go to for mini printing, also when it's warping like that it's probbably because your nozzle is to high off the bed. try getting it to the point where you can rub a flat sheet of paper a between your nozzle and your bed while feeling a but of rubbing.

Also make sure you can do that for all four corners and the center of it in case your bed is not level.

If you buy into the theoretical market hype, the photon ultra should be the highest detail at the smallest scale. Elegoo is releasing a DLP version of the Mars 3 as well but no details, let alone a date.
>>
>>81307586
I use 1.5mm walls and make my drainage holes as big as possible that'll fit in hidden areas. Also don't use the god awful auto infill supports. Most hollow prints don't even need inner supports and if they do it's only in a few particular areas. If you haven't already, go back and add lots of heavy supports in areas that fail you often. For large prints like that you want some nice thick supports. Better to oversupport than get a fail then learn how much you can dial it back.
>>

Guts failure here.

Seriously thanks for everyone's advice, the calibration print came out perfectly.
I need to sleep now but tommorrow I am going to grind learning how to slice the bust and come back when it is done.
I am painting the bust as an imminent bday gift so I can't give up on it for the time being and come back when I'm no longer retarded.
>>
>>81308488
It's hard to say since DLP doesn't use pixels on a screen. The photon ultra "only" has a 720p projector but the example prints that come off it beat the current 4k printers.
>>
>>81307497
You can likely print it solid, assuming your fep isnt sticky.

I have printed a huge T Rex head solid, looks about the same size. The tradeoff is something like More contact area with the fep vs thin walls that can squish, deform and tear apart. Generally speaking hollow is better, but printing solid, or thicker walled pieces can get you better results when troubleshooting and/or need something just done.

Clean your fep before attempting it. Make sure that shits clean. If you try this with a fep covered in resin residue (especially if you mix resins) you are probably just going to end up having to replace it.
>>
>>81308849
That looks perfect dude. Seems it's your slicing skills or model.
>>
>>81308978
I am either going to love the ultras, or get angry because I will be expected to calibrate the lens or something stupid.
>>
>>81309063
The DLP chip being texas instruments is a little comforting but damn everything else is cheaped out to the max. I think it'll be a solid printer but we'll have to wait and see. Once the projector goes it's pretty much a new printer though so hopefully that 20k hours print time claim is true.
>>
>>81306326
I was under the impression that min layer height should also be a multiple of your Z step height.
>>
>>81307918

I have found this very inspirational, thank you :D
>>
>>81309125
I am not worried about the chip. But as the thing looks like it needs a particular focus to operate at maximum quality. If it doesn't have a way to align that I will be very surprised.
>>
>>81308979
>>81308849

As a one time limited offer, if you upload the guts file, I will hollow (or not) and print it. Worst case scenario you can rule out the model itself. I can even send you back my working support file. But I slice with Photon studio so you probably don't want that.
>>
>>81309468
To be clear, I support in Prusa, and slice in Photon. So you can use the supports, you just need to slice them yourself for whatever printer you use.

Hey guys, me again. I decided today that I was gonna scrap everything, relevel, and just dive back in to printing something new. So today I went with some 25mm terrain bases.

The ones I printed at an angle (to hide layer-lines) ALL printed (even on the left side!! The side I've had so many struggles with). I'm ecstatic because I think that means my other files/slices and their supports may just not have been good enough.

However, I noticed that every single base (all 9 I printed) had this same imperfection. In the top, you can see how it stops being perfectly round and becomes almost tear-drop shaped. In the bottom, you can see how near the tear-drop tip the base becomes rounded where it should be angular, and it rounds up toward the tear-drop.

Of course, you can see where my supports were.

I'm thinking this is a support issue of some kind? Are these layers perhaps taking longer to peel and its warping the base along those edges?
>>
>>81312579
Think of the mechanics of the printer. It first pushes the item against the fep, and then it pulls it loose. Thin material / material without enough supports can warp during these interactions. Some people swear by FEP lubrication for this issue, others just clean it and add more supports. I have quite a few prints with a softer side like these.

Can also help to thicken the item up (ie thicker walls if hollowing) can reduce but not entirely remove this issue.
>>
>>81312513
