OC3D 3D Printing enthusiasts

Ok, so since no one has made this yet I figured I would start.

I guess the starting point here would be for users to update their 3D printers so we can see who has what.

That way, any tips or advice, you may know who to go to if you share the same model etc.

The other goal I thought of was to simple have fun. Post your models, ideas, Fusion 360/Solidwork designs, or gcodes and STL files. Lets just share.

Maybe someone has done something you find useful and want to copy or modify to suit your own needs. Obviously you have sites already like Thingiverse, but this is more aimed at our small OC3D community. I'm new to this but learning

And any moderators can step in and update this list if its worth updating at all

Printer Models

Warchild - Ender 5 Pro
WYP - Ender 3 Pro
Bartacus - Ender 5 Plus
hmmblah - Monoprice Maker Select Plus (Wanhao clone)

Preferred Filaments
Warchild - 3DNET PLA filament
------------Prima - Standard PLA
hmmblah - Monoprice PLA

Preferred slicer
Warchild - Ultimaker Cura //preferred choice due to generation of support structures
hmmblah - Ultimaker Cura

Preferred design software
Warchild - Fusion 360 //Versatile software with plenty of courses and tutorials
hmmblah - Fusion 360 (I've only modified designs)

Mods
hmmblah - Added Z-Stabilizers, New Y carriage, Glass bed, Spool holder


I am just throwing things together at the moment to try and provide some basic information for those who may be wanting to jump into 3D printing but do not know where to start. At least then searching on the above products in Google can shed some light on good options.

Bartacus has the biggest printer I believe.

Made some special Pokemon for my friends kids. Sprayed them with an Airbrush afterwords







Front Door sign for another friend and her dog



And last thing for me. A spool holder for a monster 3kg spool of PLA
The silver part is actually Metal. I didnt like the original rollers so I used up some tubing I had spare.

Oh wow. Where did you get the models for the pokemon? They are very well crafted.

Two sources,

Snorlax from here:

https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game...okemon-ronflex

Default model didnt slice and print well. You need to re-orientate almost all of the models. The inital attempt at normal speed/settings I did was poor so I opted for a fine detail 0.1mm layer and 50mm/s for the body.

Also I set to generate support structures for touching baseplate. It meant the build time went from 5 hours to 15hours, but the finish was perfect. And I am very proud of the airbrushed finish.



The other one I forget the name of. Jolteon I think? from here:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2625090

You need to cycle through the files and download the one you want.

Oh I have a big printer alright, with some big problems. I should have left it alone. Ever since I "upgraded" it, it's been hell. My aluminum extruder upgrade is currently 'troubled':

I've recently gotten a new extruder myself. It's a dual-drive one though. No idler.

I can't really see what happened that well based on your image. Is the filament just twisting around the gear?

Is your spring tension ok?

Ok, I'm at a loss. Before I do something stupid (eg spend nutty money), how do I figure how what went wrong with that extruder? What would cause a print to work for damn near a full day, then go bananas and do an omnomnomnom on that filament 2/3rds of the wait through?!?
