Extrusion Width and Your Girth What is printer resolution? Extrusion Width and Layer Height = Resolution. If you want higher resolution, then you would use smaller values. If you want lower resolution, then you would use higher values. These settings will not fix extrusion problems. These settings will only affect the quality of your final print.
PrintSYSt, the Web Based Slicer PrintSYSt is an interesting concept. It is a web based slicer utility for many common printers. I think that the next major innovation for 3D printing will be something that truly makes 3D printing accessible for everyone. There are quite a few things that need to fall into place before
What is a Lithophane? Lithophanes are 3D printed picture impressions. These will typically look like a topographical map until it is lit from the back, and the image will appear. Today, I will be explaining how to set up your printer to print lithophanes and also investigating some different slicer settings regarding lithophanes. All of
Introduction If you haven’t yet, check out my article on the Velocity Painting technique. To quickly summarize my previous work, this post processing technique varies the speeds of your model’s outer shell to give it a texture, picture or design. This is a very cool concept and I applied it to a few different vases
**Update: 2/14/19** While I walked you through this tutorial on Velocity Painting using Gcodes sliced with Cura 3.6, I didn’t initially notice any problems. You may not either depending on what you are printing. I have found some serious flaws with how the Velocity Painting app interprets travel movements within Cura sliced Gcodes. I would
Have you ever wanted to print or view your 3D printer remotely? I am going to show you how to turn a Raspberry Pi into a lean, mean, video streaming, and 3D print serving machine… with Octopi! What is Octopi? Octopi is a free Linux based operating system built around the Raspberry Pi mini computer.
