PLEASE HELP!! - Still not able to print on the full build surface after 3 years!

Hello, About 3 years ago I bought the Rostock MAX V1 and sadly i've never been able to truely use the full size of the bed. All i've been able to print really has been in a circle of say 15 cm MAX. I've always just accepted this small build area, because i got tired of trying to calibrate it. Since ...

Re: My WIP on a Tiger I Tank!

Hello again, Here's my update on the Tiger tank, finally. I haven't had much time for this project, still got my life I've been making a few testprints to perfect the turret, I think it looks awesome and that it's pretty high quality for 3d printing. Only last week I've been able to start working on...

Looks amazing though, very detailed! I love the practical and historical prints!



How about I model the Maus tank next and make room for a cat?
Then it'll be a cat and Maus game :)

So far i've designed it like the ultimaker, (w...

Finding the extrusion width: - Go to the slicing tab and choose the settings (configure) for slic3r. - Under the 'print settings' tab (it's the first one you'll see by default) - The last settings group called 'advanced' - If it's using the default settings these will all be 0 - Set them to whateve...
