Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

So it was before the bowden.. pure guess, but I would say the PLA was brittle or had a nic/score in it, that caused it to break, and the end started to curl between the feed tube and the drive gear. If you still have the filament that was left in the bowden look at what would have been the extruder...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

I do not have auto bed level but would love it! I saw they have the bl-touch to make it auto leveling so maybe down the road... So I just save that code as a .gcode and slap it on the micro sdcard and run it? Without the m420 line of course. Or do I put this at the beginning of the gcode it makes fo...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

Since using all the white that came with the printer, I switched to block filament from 3dWarhorse - now I cant get it to stick to the bed. Also it doesnt start printing right away cause of drippage causing a void in the nozzle (from what I read - yea, I can read a little bit lol). I cant for the li...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

My first print - after some problems! Seems the bowden tube (correct name?) was not fully inserted into the nozzle so it built up plastic and cooled to block everything....ugh I resized all to 480 for filesize purposes. And for some reason they are rotated....Took them with my phone rather than a re...

I have 2 now. Powerspec 3D pro 2 (micro center flashforge clone) and a Creality CR10S Pro. Both have been upgraded to micro swiss hotend. I don't use the powerspec too much anymore. Too friggen loud. The 32bit stepper drivers on the 10S Pro are dead quiet. I changed out all the fans so can hardly t...

Re: Upping my audio game

no links to review sites and such. If it is your site then you may contact Apoptosis about advertising pricing. From what I saw on that site they are mostly portable junk and if you want a true experience you will be paying thousands for a real surround system with decent speakers. If you are into 4...

I 100% disagree with Bubba on that one....Windows 10 interface SUCKS. I absolutely hate it!

Classic Shell has been taken over by Open Shell - https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu

Use that on windows 10 and it will be like you have Windows 7 installed!!!

Re: Win7 Updates

Try getting these 2 - Check your already installed list in windows update to see if they are already there. If so you can try installing again to make sure there is no error or ignore this as i am running Windows 10 on everything (with classic shell) now. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/447...

Re: Inno3D GTX 1070 Accelero Hybrid

Awesome! Sounds like you found a winner. It always amazes me that companies won't use better thermal paste (or apply it correctly) on video cards that are hundreds (or thousands) of dollars.

Did you watercool the Inno3D or are you happy with the temps on air? Duh, HYBRID - already water cooled #-o
