  • When I've printed an object I've had to choose between high resolution and quick prints. What techniques or technologies can I use or deploy to speed up my high resolution prints?

  • I would like to buy a 3D printer, but I'm concerned about the health risks that are associated with its operation. Some groups of scientists say it can be harmful for humans. What do I need to consid...

  • I know the minimum layer height will effect how detailed of an item you can print and the amount of time it takes to print something, but is it necessary to have an extremely low minimum layer height ...

  • Plastic is used in 3D FDM/FFF printing partly because it had a wide temperature range for its glass state - where it can be flowed with some force, but won't flow due only to gravity. Most metals hav...

  • What are the main differences when using ABS over PLA and vice versa?

  • My MakerBot printer supports only two filaments at the same time. What are techniques to print objects with more than two colors for one object?

  • I'd like to print modifications for my birdfeeder, both to patch over the hail damage from last summer and to try to deter the neighborhood squirrels. I have an FDM printer (and experience with nylon...

  • The surfaces of my printed parts using PLA plastic look rough and uneven. Would changing filament to a better one make any difference? If not, what kind of methods can I use to achieve a smoother fi...

  • With an ABS or PLA extrusion 3D printer, are there any potentially negative quality differences that could occur if I try to print at a higher resolution? I am not concerned about print time as the e...

  • I would like to print parts (e.g. jewellery) for use which I don't want to look or feel like a plastic, but metal-like, so briefly people won't see much difference. Are there any specific type of hom...

  • I am aware of several "clear" filaments for a ABS or PLA printer. They, however, have a cloudy or frosted glass appearance. I do not believe this is possible to eliminate but I believe it can be redu...

  • My printed parts consist rafts, supports and other extraneous filament when printing with ABS or PLA. What are efficient general techniques of removing them?

  • I would like to understand the differences between rafts, skirts and brims. They appear in the software which I'm using to edit my 3D objects. Can anybody elaborate what are these and what are the ma...

  • I've acquired all the parts to build a Reprap Prusa i3 rework, the only missing part is the frame. I'm in doubt between a MDF cut (cheaper) or acrylic (more expensive), of course a cheaper one is my...

  • I've seen article about World's First 3D Printed Bike. What kind of printer is required to do that, briefly how long it takes and how much does it cost? Is this even achievable at home? Doesn't need ...

  • There is a 3D desktop printer RepRap which can print most of its own components. Assuming each printed printer will print the next one and so on. Are there any limitation how many times this can be a...

  • On a number of occasions I've broken small plastic parts that are nearly impossible to replace but could easily be 3-D printed. The latest such mishap is the volume knob on the factory-installed radi...

  • I have a few kg of 3mm filament when I only have use for 1.75mm. How can I make 1.75mm from 3mm filament?

  • I would like to print 3D desktop printer, but currently I know only RepRap project. Ideally I'm looking for some better quality or larger alternatives (e.g. for printing larger parts than RepRap allow...

  • I am printing a print using PLA on a Prusa i3 printer and an MK8 extruder, at 210 degrees celsius, 60 mm/sec, sliced with slic3r. The print consists of a base, with 4 tower-like projections that then ...
