Mounting, wiring up and configuring the heated bed
For the filaments I use, PLA and PETG, a heated bed is more a nice to have than an absolute necessity. That is why it is one of the last things on my list. And was the reason that I had the heated bed mounted to my printer MacGyver style for so long. I used...

Electronics Controller I want a 32-bits controller board for the printer. One on which I can choose my own motor driver boards. I found RAMPS-FD 1.0, a cheap RAMPS-based board that can be piggybacked on a 32 bits Arduino Due board. You can not use a normal ...

Say goodbye to 3M painters tape and hello to 3D lac
I have used blue 3M painters tape on my  Prusa Mendel i2  since I started 3D-printing in 2012. I could use the tape it for more than one print. Removing some prints would damage the tape, and then I had to replace some of it. The cons: the underside is not ...

Investigating the cause of failing hour long running 3D-prints
Short running and small 3D-prints have never caused any problems on my Prusa Mendel i2 RepRap 3D-printer. On the other hand, bigger, hours long running 3D-prints often fail. Figure 1 shows the profile of a model that failed initially. The object is 10 cm wi...
