Glass bed for Ender 3 Pro

by nheather

The magnetic bed sheet of my Ender 3 is worn in the middle now and also the bed has developed a slight dip in the middle.

Looking to get a glass bed as a replacement but a little bewildered about how many different ones there are on eBay and Amazon ranging in price between £10 and £25. Not sure if there are different ones of differing qualities or they are all essentially the same and it is just sellers setting different prices. I don’t mind paying top end if it is better but not if it is just identical with the seller making more profit.

So are they all the same. If not is there any way of telling which are the good ones.

And other question, when I do get one

1) should I remove the magnetic sticker to expose the aluminium of the bed
2) clips - are those minimalist neat little clips any good or am I best using bulldog clips

Thanks for your advice,

Nigel

Independent External SD Card Slot Module

by Merlin51

Hi people new here, my ender 3 sd card slot crapped out a while back and no card wood stay clipped in not even and extension cable.
So I broke down and brought a new board, ok all good but it was a later model then the one I replaced. Creality 3D V1.1.3 now have a V1.1.4
This one is a little different in that when you pause the print it don't lift the nozzle to go back home and the bed temp and nozzle temp goes down while in pause and when resuming I have to wait while the temp gets up to operating temp again (a pain).
Now while the pausing is a curse the old board is ok but for the sd slot, I spotted on Banggood this evening [url=https://www.banggood.com/3pcs-4540mm-Independent-External-SD-Card-Slot-Module-with-20cm-Dupont-Cable-3D-Printer-Accessories-p-1350652.html?utm_design=41&utm_source=emarsys&utm_medium=Neworder171109&utm_campaign=trigger-emarsys&utm_content=winna&sc_src=email_2675773&sc_eh=495165bbe395b7991&sc_llid=13832904&sc_lid=105229698&sc_uid=4e0D91otXS&cur_warehouse=CN]This[/url]
Sorry bout the long LinkI don't seem to got it right.
Can I use these SD card slots and if so how and where to plug one in PLEASE.....

Ender started print big blobs

by tvrulesme

My Ender 3 has just started producing these large blobs of filament. Anyone seen this before? I don't even know what these are called so it's difficult to look up the issue for a solution.

Thanks in advance

Need help trouble shooting my Ender 3 pro

by Flugge00

Hello! Just started a print for my friend and I stumbled on a problem which I can't seem to figure out how to solve. As you guys can see in the picture something is really wrong in with the extrusion.? It behaves like after a while of printing perfectly, filament stops coming out leaving a gap in the print and starts blobbing weirdly. Tried bed level, other adhesion methods and different slicer settings. I figured it could be something with the nozzle clogging up or something. I swapped out the nozzle to a new one but the problem is still happening. I need some advise of what you might think it is. Happy for every answer.

Hero Me Remix 2 with Robust Assembly & Extended cable Management

by BoothyBoothy

Hi All,

For anyone interested I have remixed the Hero Me Fan Duct 4010 & 5015 dual fan ducts for the stock Hot End. It includes:

1.Robust single tab, dual fix assembly.

2.Extended Wire management to hide all fan cables (part visible in 5015 duct).

3.Individual duct assemblies to maximise nozzle visibility.

4.All parts print without support.

The thing does not include any levelling sensor attachments or non stock Hot End facilities.

Best Boothy

cannot disable X stepper

by silvatech

have had a really odd issue I just have been putting up with. I am not sure if this is something in the marlin code or what. So figure I would ask here first.
On my ender 3 its running MKS GEN L V1.0 Controller Board with tmc2208 step drivers. no matter what the xstepper stays active unless I turn it off or unplug it. All the other step drivers disable themselves. If I in the menu tell it to disable step drivers the X still stays locked. Is this a software issue or is this more common to be a hardware issue? any feedback from anyone else that has had a one of their step drivers not cooperate in this way would be great. Other then that it works fine. this does not seem to effect the way it works. Just anoying when you need to move it a bit by hand.
