I have spent the last year trying to make the 3D printers at the Hack Factory and elsewhere reliable. Printing at slower speeds, printing with a different material and making sure you have properly followed Triffid Hunter’s calibration guide are the three best debugging steps to get your printer back on track. If you have taken my 3D printing 101 class and you feel ready for the next chapter then this class is right for you.
In addition to Triffid Hunter's Calibration Guide, this class will cover clearing different versions of extruder/hot end jams, leveling your print bed, Gcode commands that change your EPROMS, and how to determine if your circuit board, slicing software or STL file is faulty.
I have purposely been getting experience repairing a wide range of FFF 3D printers because I want to become good enough that I am in every Minnesota school and library’s contact list. My experience includes, Printrbot, Rostock, M3D, Velleman, Prusa, Flash Forge, and Monoprice.
Feel free to bring your printer and set it up 15 minutes before the class starts. I make no guarantees that I can fix a broken circuit board or extruder jam during the class but I will try. I will be able to diagnose which part is faulty.
