Bed Fan Interference?

I had my first fail today, after lots of successful prints. A few questions about the bed fan... (Using S3D, Windows 8, Red PLA and USB printing) When my extruder travels to the extreme -X axis (far left) the bed fan touches the left tower support and gets mooshed over a bit, out of the way. Is that...

Lot's of successes using Red MakerGear PLA with Simplify3d on Windows 8, sending files by USB. I've got a few questions. What is your shutdown protocol? How long after a print finishes do you wa...

Re: Really Getting Started - Purchase Decision

Again, thank-you for the guidance. You have made me very comfortable about my purchase.

Really Getting Started - Purchase Decision

Hello All, I have ZERO experience with 3D printing, but am spending my time on due diligence in order to make an informed purchase decision. As a hobbyist, I am hoping to make parts for UAVs (quadcopters, etc.), gimbals and other parts for more traditional videography and photography. I do not want ...
