Modern technologies continually develop. Experts are always in search of new methods to simplify everyday tasks, and such positive changes are widely used everywhere, including the 3D printing industry. You can 3D print without supports, eliminate additional structures, save filament and your time. And your result will look fantastic and professional even if a 3D print is crafted at home, on an affordable FDM, SLA and other types of 3D printers.
Some 3D printing enthusiasts love to experiment with their device settings and materials. Thus, crazyfilament discussed his fantastic experiments with filament in the interview with Gambody. And in case you are thinking of adding some upgrades to your TEVO Tornado, Creality CR-10, Ultimaker or another machine, it is handy to learn about nozzle replacement. Gambody decided to share a simple guide on how to change a nozzle on a 3D printer from 0.4mm to 0.8mm.
Many incredible 3D printing models can be crafted without supports. However, many fantastic projects require these additional structures. It is interesting to look at the main types of 3D printing supports you can use, especially if you are a beginner and wish your figurine or statue to look professional.
Whether you are new to 3D printing or an experienced hobbyist, you probably wish to protect your filament from tangling and drying. PLA and ABS are the two most popular filament types among enthusiasts. Thus, it is best to figure out how to store 3D printer filament (PLA and ABS) at home correctly. This way, you can preserve its properties and simplify the 3D printing process.
Just like the internet has changed the lives of billions of people, 3D printing technology that becomes more affordable year after year changes the life of crafters, designers and sculptors. Even an affordable FDM 3D printer for beginners can build a stunning figurine right in your home. And it upsets when you experience any problems with your device. Our 3D printing troubleshooting guide is meant to help you fix the most common 3D printing issues people encounter in 2019.
