We are getting tons of questions about upgrading the filament feed tube, and whether it’s really worth it to pay for the expensive Capricorn tubing. I always ask the same questions, like are you planning to run filament other than PLA in the future? Also are you having any issues with retraction and extruder grinding?…
Happy New Years everyone! I hope you are sticking to your resolutions, while 3D Printing all sorts of neat new gadgets and useful items. This month I want to ask all readers to please like us on Facebook and begin to share your 3D Prints with us; we will certainly begin to improve our Facebook…
Hello everyone! It’s time again to do a TOP 5 Most Popular 3D prints, since Thingiverse has started to speed up a little it seems to be changing the top “Popular” files more often. It’s time to announce the top 5 most popular prints of November, as we will always remember in history which prints were hot as the future unfolds!
#1 Bottle Opener Cap Gun by 3Deddy
30% for most parts, print the trigger solid!
Filament: REAL PLA
PETG is too flexible I think so use PLA. Print the trigger SOLID!
Print it strong so it will not break while opening bottles.
#2 A Frame Bird House by APC514
#3 Flying Sea Turtle by amaochan
1.Layer height 0.2mm
2.Low down the flow to 90%or 95%.
4.Add oil on moveable parts.
5.Replace old parts with new parts which is added “-NEW” after the original part name.
6.Part “FT-GEAR02” is advised to print in layer height 0.1mm or 0.15mm,and it needs support.

#5 Cute Mini Octopus by McGybeer
This is a 3D print that has been on our Top 5 multiple times, and it may continue to be!
Linear Advance on an Ender 3 is something that you don’t hear about too often. It’s been noted on quite a few websites, including marlin’s own wiki that the bowden setup may not benefit from a linear advance. I was looking into ways to print faster while still maintaining the print quality of my slower…
Switching from PLA Filament to PETG on an Ender 3 Have you been printing PLA filament on your Ender 3 and now you’re ready to try something more advanced, and strong like PETG filament? It’s not always an easy switch for people who have gotten used to only printing PLA. It takes some time to…
Below we are sharing the top 10 most popular 3D Print STL files of June 2019. Not only does this spread awareness to people potentially thinking about purchasing a 3D Printer, it also archives these popular files to keep them safe. If Thingiverse goes down, we will have them archived for safe keeping. Hit the…
Hello Guys! I am writing this new article because I just did an upgrade to one of my Ender 3’s and I wanted to share it with people who may want to try it. I was watching some videos on YouTube by CHEP (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg47Std5ywI) about how the cooling fans aren’t really doing much. I had…
Have you just switched nozzles on your Ender 3, or maybe even a new hot-end? We have experience doing both; switching to the Micro Swiss All Metal Hot End, as well as using the hardened steel nozzles. Every time we make a change to our hot-end we disrupt the PID loop. A P.I.D Loop is…
Are you on a budget but still want to install Auto Bed Leveling on your Ender 3? Well we have the same thought going on here, and anytime we can DIY a project, we do. If you have ever seen the tutorials with the sensor and an octocoupler, that is exactly what we are doing…
The latest Ender 3 3D Printers are being shipped with the version 1.1.4 Motherboard, and the instructions online for flashing the bootloader have the wrong ISP pin diagrams. I have decided to write my own how-to and inform you guys how to get the ISP header pins lined up correctly with your Arduino. Tools Required…
