Temperature and print speed

Temperature and print speed

Several factors impact to optimize the choice of temperature and print speed of your 3D printer. There may be the type of filament used, the desired quality, the time allowed, the nozzle and the printer on which you print. The filament used The printer melts the...
The design phase: why?

The design phase: why?

A 3D printer works additively, it melts one on the other very thin layers of plastic that merge to form the object designed using a software of computer-aided design (CAD). If you buy a 3D printer, the process does not stop to introduce a file, a filament and marvel...

Introduction The original post is full of errors (junction in excess, junction missing, bad measurement, permutation of units and tens …). And the plan is quite difficult to read … So it took a lot of work and I progressed carefully not to end up with more profiles to...
Choose your filament

Choose your filament

To optimize your printing, here are some tips to choose your filament according to what you want to do. With a better filament, you can print faster without the risk of clogging your nozzle. First of all, whatever the filament you choose, it is necessary to check that...

Clogged Nozzle

Clogged Nozzle

Why does the nozzle get clogged? Sometimes the nozzle of your printer gets clogged, it may be due to a too low heating temperature, an upstream cooling in the hot-end not efficient enough, a build plate located too close to the nozzle or the quality of your nozzle....
