Re: A Bed Spring

Good idea, double faced tape to hold it in place and the spring is a done deal.
Please shared the file when you have it perfected.

Re: 3d printed speakers

There's as much art here as there is tech advice.

I'm envious, being just a nuts and bolts user seeing truly amazing creations!

Re: Corner of print lifting

If you have purchased the software S3D there's several ways to configure your 1st layer. No expert, but slowing 1st layer down to 50% and laying it on thick at 150% has helped me with ABS. PLA is not near as touchy. Bonding agent to the bed is another place to look. Blue painters tape works with PLA...

Re: Problem with PLA surface finish

I had a problem similar building my spoons, extra manual placement in S3D should take care of the sagging issue. I take it we're looking at the front view, rotate 90 degrees and put in manual supports to cover the entire bend, or arch. 4 to 5mm supports might fix all. S3D add support automatically i...
