New to this, in regards to 3d Printing


#1

I apologize first off if I missed a rule and posted in the wrong place. I just discovered this whole thing a few minutes ago, and live in Denton. I saw there’s a meetup tomorrow that I’ll be attending but I was curious about something first.

In short, I invested all of my savings and bought an Ultimaker 3 Extended and am starting a business printing things, as my full-time job. Unfortunately, it’s been 3-4 weeks and I can’t get a decent print because there are issues that I can’t seem to fix. I have like 5 clients waiting but I can’t even get to that point.

Is there a subgroup or somewhere specific to those who focus on 3D printing? I’m desperate to get it fixed but mostly I’m hopeful meet some like-minded individuals because I live alone in a bubble.

I’m excited to be part of this community and hopefully there’s something of value I can offer as well!

Most 3D printer issues can be resolved by following the guide Here:https://reprap.org/wiki/Print_Troubleshooting_Pictorial_Guide#CAUSES:

or Here: https://reprap.org/wiki/RUG/Pennsylvania/State_College/Trouble_Shooting_Guide

And there is the #3d-fabrication group if you are wanting to ask questions about 3D Printers.

Not a #hashtag!! It’s an @ handle: @Team_3D_Fab

Also, it’s best/most efficacious (word of the day: efficacious) to place things in the appropriate category when thread is created. I have moved this one to 3D Fab area.

@mblatz, unfortunately the original poster will not be able to participate in the discussion with it under 3D Fabrication. They are missing the infamous Green Dot.

Thread returned to Uncategorized.

Sigh…moved back to purgatory.

Anyway you can bring it to dms? I’d be glad to help you look at it.


#7

If you are seeing this I’m willing to help. Ultimaker should have excellent support if it’s a hardware issue. Can you explain the issue?


#8

If this is a kit you have built from parts then you may have parts too tight and others not enough. A torque screwdriver will help with this.

Just as an offtopic FYI:
the octothorpe plus channel name as employed in the post by Mars42 creates a link to the category page; it just doesn’t look like a link. Try clicking it, though. The commercial at serves the slightly different purpose of precursing a person entity when the need arises to address their attention.
Either is valid, depending on the intent…

PS: ROFL @ Ahnuld!

Word of the day: octothorpe.
