    Longtime lurker willing to enter 3D

    Good points. If I started with a good brand semi-flex, something that would work with my CR-10 / Bowden setup, and be relatively easy to try, I might give it a go some day. I'm just not in a position right now to make a ton of changes to my printer, software, etc., to accommodate stuff outside...

    Ugh, you're ALMOST tempting me try some flex filaments. ... almost.

    Time to GROW-UP - 3D Modeling Software

    I don't know if OnShape is much easier / harder than Fusion. I kinda figure that once you learn the basics of "parametric design", then those skills are pretty transferable to most of the apps. For example, I started learning FreeCAD, and then ended up moving to OnShape and a lot of the tools...

    Time to GROW-UP - 3D Modeling Software

    I really wish I had dove-into parametric design (Fusion, OnShape, etc.) earlier on! Here's something I made in OnShape that worked out PERFECTLY, and I would have had a hard time designing in tinkercad: I needed a VERY specific shaped funnel to fit my SodaStream to refill it with Dry Ice: I...

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    After reading your post a few earlier, I started watching videos about it, what it does, how to install, etc. A lot of people are loving what it does for them, but the process of getting it all setup is (currently) outside of my level of patience and commitment. ;) I'll be better off learning...

    I've been thinking about doing this with my CR-10. I even have legit Capricorn on the ready in my supplies. ... it's just hard for me to mess with something that's "working" since I'm often inclined to make things worse when trying to fix a problem that doesn't really exist. LOL!

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    @The Hat, etc. peeps with printers: Have you ever printed a Benchy? I'd love to see your results / tests at "standard settings" (0.2mm height / 60mm/s) and then other "faster" settings and how long the prints take and what the quality looks like!

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    Wow! Clearly I have a bit of tuning to do! Your results are better than mine at 1/2 the print time!

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    Ok, since that turned out so well (and because I can't stand printing so slowly) I decided to up-the-ante by: Increasing nozzle to .6mm Increasing layer height to .4mm (basically doubling) Going back to the first filament I had started with (yellow) Kept print speed at 60 mm/s Result was not...

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    Ok, I think I got it fixed! Not sure what did it, but here's the list: Dismantled the hot-end, cleaned up all the dust bunnies, put it all back together nice and snug (no more wobble) Replaced the nozzle from .8mm to a new .4mm (dang it prints SLOW compared to .8!!!) Tried to tighten the Y...

    CR-10 Prints are turning out TERRIBLE! Help troubleshooting

    After years of printing tons of stuff without much issue, I tried to print Benchy (.2mm height, 60mm/s) and got this monstrosity: Um... ok. Must be bad filament. Lemme try another filament I know works: WHAT IS GOING ON!?!? Seriously?!?! No idea what's happening, so I'm doing some...

    3D printed rubber molds

    Yup! It's pretty crazy how tight the resolution can get on those SLA printers! ... but ya, the messiness / toxicity of SLA are my biggest reasons why I'm just not inclined to go that direction. That said, if/when you set your SLA up, please post about it!!!

    3D printed rubber molds

    Great points guys! Ya, this definitely crosses the line from "I could try that!" and well into "I'll watch and admire people with more skills and patience do it!"

    3D printed rubber molds

    This is pretty cool-fun stuff! Designing these complex molds seems way WAY over my skillset, but I'm tempted to try this with some less complicated parts. ... of course, I guess I could just try to do that with flex filaments.

    Hi @Printguy, thanks for your message. Sorry you were the recipient of this spam. As mentioned above, there's no way to keep ALL spam out of a platform. Even Zuckerburg with his gazillions of $$'s can't do it. "start"? Hopefully you can see through this thread that we've been working on this...

    LOL! It's true! Actually I was up late vs. up early. ;) It's definitely a team-effort! Great question! Since our community is so well behaved, we haven't really needed much in the way of "moderation". That said, I have peeps in different time-zones that help out on all my sites... one of whom...
