Hello everyone, today we are going to be further upgrading our E3D clone hot-end by TH3D namely the TH3D Tough. We have been using this hot-end for several months since our initial “Top 5 Mods for Ender 5” article, and it has done well. I have experienced quite a few jams though. Every time I…
If you haven’t noticed from most of the blog posts on this website, I am an owner of the Ender 3 3D Printer. I decided I wanted to try something “new” and I started hunting around for a deal on the Ender 5. I found on eBay some sellers in New York offering “used” Creality…
*FYI: This may still be a jumbled up mess, I am working on the editing of this post and writing as I do my own burn/upgrade. Bear with me please. If you are a tech savvy person like myself, the first thing you are wondering when you get your Ender 5; is what can I…
HeroMe Gen5 is a user created system to upgrade your Ender 3 (or other printer) to a stronger fan, with tested cooling ducts that actually cool the part as it is being printed. This system has been perfected over several years, and the community has shown great success with these parts. I use one personally,…

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.

1.Layer height 0.2mm

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…
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…
