E3D V6 hot end.

by seanburkett26

I just purchased this hot end off of amazon, in the attempt to print polycarbonate. Not being totally new to 3d printing, but not having a clue with the mechanics behind every (just not so up to date with everything) simple questions. Will this work with my Anycubic kossel linear plus effector stock or do I need to make modifications? I'm not so good when it comes to the mods.

Decent quality filament

by Phistterbut_Inc

What sort of PLA is everyone using these days? I'm sure most of you know I used to rock Maker Geeks until that went tits up. I've so far gone back to Hatch Box but I've found that their filament is complete shit. It's finely stringing for me and personally 200c seems like an afront. I miss my high temp, non-stringy PLA. What are you all using and how's it run?

Edit: add what temps you're running for your filament if you don't mind.

filament high quality not shit quality

Canal en Español...!!

by stanleyatala


Para quienes hablan en Español, hay un canal de "Discord" disponible.
Discord es una aplicación que fue desarrollada para Gamers inicialmente (chat texto y voz), para reemplazar las sesiones de Skype; pero por su accesibilidad, facilidad de uso, esta siendo usada por otras comunidades "especializadas".


Se los comparto.
Me parece el complemento perfecto para la comunidad, en esos momentos cuando necesitamos hacer algo en "tiempo real" y en Español.

Tod@s invitados...!
Saludos ✌

Stainable wood PLA

by Bc320

I am looking for a wood filament that accepts stain ok. I tried some AMOLEN that printed nice with a 0.4 nozzle but it did not accept stain. Even after letting the piece soak for 48 hours in a stain and ethyl acetate combination. I am not sure why it didn't. The stain rubbed right off.
