Printing a Curved Container

Comments Off on Printing a Curved Container

I decided to try at a print which involves curves and thus hanging edges enough to just stick to the previous layer to test out the efficiency of the machine.  I used this pot from thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3781 I learned lots. belts slipped. Gears slipped. Temperatures varied. and I was watching this thing for 3.5 hours. […]

Pyramid Print – Testing for strings

Comments Off on Pyramid Print – Testing for strings

I saw that this pyramid (made by 3dprinterbot on thingiverse) was a good way to calibrate the stringing which occurs when the print head moves from one object across mid air to another.  Retraction is what its called and its under the Dimension Menu in Skeinforge. (Skeinforge->Carve->Dimension->’Retraction Distance’) It is set for 25mm and the […]

Smallest size test (thus far)

Comments Off on Smallest size test (thus far)

I wanted to print out a toy truck which was on thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:9710 The reason I scaled it so small was actually because I wanted to print something quick after some bridge feedrate calibration I did in skeinforge.  Since this truck had some bridges in the back (where the dump part is), I thought might […]

Comments Off on Memon Name plate

After some adjustments in Skeinforge, I wanted to print out something a little personal so I created a name plate using Tinkercad Tinkercad is a free and easy to use web-based program which will let you share on thingiverse.com and also let you download the .stl file.  If others created something on thingiverse, they can […]

After so much difficulty with the huxley, I’ve finally come to a good build. I decided to print out a mini wade extruder because the bowden is what is causing a lot of problems right now. As you can see from the following photos that I had to put wood screws into the bowden cable […]

First Print! but fail due to x axis jamming

Comments Off on First Print! but fail due to x axis jamming

Yay Alhumdulillah my first print actually printed. Even though it started to slide over to the left, this is a good starting point to troubleshoot further. I used g code generated from here: 3dtoolchain.com/​index.php Its a website made by Techzonecom, the ones who sold me the huxley reprap, so the settings are good. I can […]

First Print test – Fail – Tip jam

May 1, 2011

Comments Off on First Print test – Fail – Tip jam

Problem: This is when the hot tip jammed into the bed. Hypothesis: This might be for two reasons: 1) The hot tip wasn’t hot enough to melt the plastic as it was being extruded, thus causing the plastic to push the whole tip downwards. 2) The extruder is just too fast with the repsnapper g-code. […]
