  1. The settings for most prints you will do, will come in when you select your printer. After a few fails or near fails you can adjust your settings. Again join a forum supporting your printer. Most there are VERY happy to answer any question you might have. FYI I am using a BLTouch for bed leveling. You might look into that as it really does speed up setting up for a print.
  2. Tempest, have you played with any slicer apps yet? I currently use Cura and quite happy with it. Some models I use Meshmixer to get tree supports, then xfer to Cura to slice. If you have not done so yet, get a roll of PLA to burn through as you learn. It will tear you up getting your printer and finding all you get to print is the sample Benchy. Just saying, Mim P.S. did you notice the support for the boat? Hint: Not tree support.
  3. Welcome to the world of frustration! but many hours of entertainment and just plain fun. FYI this 3D Printer blew me away. I have seen concrete house 3D printer but this one looks almost practical.
  4. Back to PS print...I am constructing an enclosure for my Ender 3 3D printer. This will allow me (fingers crossed) to print with ABS filament. The issue I have is the cross bars supporting the wing sections. After removing the supports from the print the cross bars come with it. Using ABS filament the model will be stronger and allow for smoothing with acetone. More later. If this adventure is bugging anyone. I can hold off reporting on my semi weekly trials.
  5. I've seen good things about that one. I think the support is the best in the industry. But...I would suggest you look into their Facebook pages and see what other users have experienced with that printer or other older Prusa models. Good luck and try to remember it is a new-ish industry so tinkering might be needed. Just this morning I had my BLTouch get stuck in the triggered position. Took me a long bit to find it, after un-plugging and re-plugging stepper motor cables. A search through my junk bin to replace the controller board. I finally found it and am printing again. .... Off topic: Taking a break on the PS print. More on that fiasco later.
  6. New pic uploaded. https://imgur.com/a/N0FUs0f
  7. Is there any demand for uploads of the STL files of ships? I have two so far. I would be happy to share. I'm currently printing my PS in High resolution. It will be tomorrow before it is done so will post pics. It has been a journey. So Kyp? an area for EnB related 3D models?
  8. Thanks much...Had a brain fart and with the tutorial (you provided) I combined all parts in Blender. Doing a 17 hour print now. Or possibly not if the supports turn out as fragile as they look. Will keep you posted. Mim ------------------Edit -------------------- Annnnd the supports didn't keep the print up. Back to the drawing board
  9. Thanks.... exactly my issue. A new problem is that one of the lower wings on latest print showed up about 25% smaller than the other. Looked good in Cura, looked good in Meshlab but printed stunted. I am going to try to rip apart and only print that one over. Good times. Think my next printer will be SLA. print the whole thing at one small time. TempestNWK thank you for the video tutorial.
  10. New pic uploaded... same link as above: https://imgur.com/a/N0FUs0f --------------------Edit ------------------ Added lower wing section
  11. Sorry, done...see above
  12. Here are some links to today's attempt. Will set printer running in the morning and post actual pics of results. Keep your fingers crossed. Mim https://imgur.com/a/N0FUs0f
  13. No, bid on an Ender 3 on e-Bay. Got it cheap and mostly regretted getting a used/discounted printer. GREAT learning experience so <$200 and able to print was worth the "class" in 3D printing. Tried to upload pics but seems I am limited??? Hey boss up my limit please. Started to save change and LMAO winning loto tickets to get a snapmaker .
  14. Did my 1st print of EnB Progen Sentinel (Parts). Came out tiny very very tiny. Did another print @ 165%. A better size but it seems the game world 3D is not the same as real world 3D. Support added but as soon as I removed them the part came apart. I will need to modify the STL files I made to strengthen the supports and add some that don't exist. So...anyone know how to un-group the parts? Will edit with Blender and or Meshmixer. Thanks in advance Mim
  15. French may be his native tongue.... Just saying, Mim P.S. teh I've seen a lot.
  16. Test the config before exiting. This will save your changes.
  17. FYI Snapmaker 2.0 on Kickstarter... Special price ? Anyway...
  18. You know it made me want to check this out. What is it?
  19. Your local IP looks weird. Mine is set to my local machine. IP address is registered by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as a part of private network IP addresses in the private space are not assigned to any specific organization, including your ISP (Internet Service Provider), and anybody may use these IP addresses without the consent of a regional Internet registry as described in RFC 1918, unlike public IP addresses. However, IP packets addressed from a private range cannot be send through the public Internet, and so if such a private network needs to connect to the Internet, it has to be done through a network address translator (also called NAT) gateway, or a proxy server. An example of a NAT gateway would be a wired or wireless router you receive from a broadband provider. The fixed IP address of such a device in network range would generally be or depending on the provider. A gateway webinterface should be available through the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and/or HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protocols. To try this you should enter 'http://ip address' or 'https://ip address' in the address bar of your favorite web browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and log in with the username and password provided by your provider. You can use these types of (private network) IP addresses in your local network and assign it to your devices such as a personal computer, laptop, tablet and/or smartphone. It is also possible to configure a range within a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server to do the IP assigning automatically. May be your issue
  20. This is the printer I wanted...but wife said I had to sell my bike. 94 FLSTC. Nope! Still less than the Prusa i3 MK3S,
  21. I just got an Creality Ender 3 3D Printer from eBay... Have not opened it yet as I need to clean my work bench. From what I have seen it is cheaper to upgrade the 3 with the addons you want rather than spend the extra cash for the Creality Ender 3 3D Pro Printer . Look for someone who will accept make an offer, check for the lowest price you can find and bit a tad under that. Pretty cool that I can CnC as well as laser engrave. P.S. Pull the trigger fast... it seems prices will be going up soonish with the new trade talks coming to a close.. +25% passed to you. Oh...I got mine for < 180.00 with shipping.
  22. I spit my coffee this am...hope you do the same.
  23. LMFAO..... Slowly I turned....Step by step... You had to mention Niagara I mean Agrippa!
  24. I remember the original Call Forward quest line (EA version) was a PIB. Took me forever.
  25. Here is an idea: I used to play Pirates of the burning seas... They allowed some game mods in the way of sails. The tools were not suggested but once a sail was submitted they were checked for adherence to the specs. If so the sail would become available either public or private. So my idea is create an area (invite only after request) that describes the format of the missions. If the mission is accepted, the mission can be cut and pasted into the game tools. If the user passes muster he/she could then be given access to the tools themselves? What you think boss? Mim P.S. We already allow logos
