Today at 3DWork we are going to analyze a new integral extruder called BIQU H2 that the Chinese company BIQU has developed for its new BIQU BX printer. In case you are not aware, this new printer was successfully financed through the famous Crowdfunding platforms Indiegogo and Kickstarter recently. This new type of “integral” extruder, as I like to call ...

We all know, or we should know if we have been messing around with 3D filament printers for a long time, that the materials we use over time degrade or simply lose quality. Taking into account the “expiration date” goes unnoticed many times and we always attribute our printing problems or “artifacts” in the pieces to possible misconfigurations of our ...

These last weeks, and after the article we made about the resin printer Phrozen Shuffle XL Lite, I have been working with a new closed machine on which I was interested in making a short article, the QIDI TECH X-Plus printer. The QIDI TECH X-Plus printer is developed by the well-known Chinese company QIDI Technology, which offers us both FDM ...

Some time ago the well-known Taiwanese company Phrozen surprised us with a small but fast resin printer called Phrozen Sonic Mini. This printer, of which I prepared in 3DWork an extensive article that you can read at this link, I was pleasantly surprised by its ease of use and speed. Depending on the height you selected in your slicer, it ...

For some time now the SKR series from BigTreeTech have become a benchmark in the sector when we talk about electronic boards for 3D printing. The latest models SKR v1.4 and SKR v1.4 Turbo they have become extremely popular and it is not surprising to see them as standard in new releases of 3D printers that hit the market. However, ...

Currently, the vast majority of 3D printer manufacturers offer us the filament detection function (or lack of it, to be more precise) as something common. This means that when our spool of filament runs out, Marlin automatically stops the current job and offers us the ability to insert another spool without losing our current impression. And although most printers already ...

One of the things that caught my attention when I started to assemble my first 3D printer is that the different filaments that we use in 3D printing are capable of absorbing moisture, who would have thought 🙂 Obviously I was unaware that the plastics used in 3D printing – in this case plastic polymers – could accumulate moisture, and ...

As well you will know if you are a “regular” of our printing blog 3DWork.io, we are restless minds and we always love to develop external applications related to the world of 3D printing. If you remember, some time ago we prepared a very useful application called Marlin Builder, in which you can easily configure a Marlin firmware from your ...

3D Part post-processing techniques are some of the least enjoyable tasks in 3D printing and the most lazy (at least for me personally). Sometimes this work becomes something completely unavoidable. It can be due to the design or geometry, the layout of the piece or even its final function (such as a completely smooth finish). In this short article of ...

Some of you may already know that some time ago we developed a fairly intuitive web application to configure the Marlin firmware from our website. In order to use this tool, called Marlin Builder, you must access the link https://3dwork.io/marlin and fill in the 5 sections that you will find available. Although, these days ago the Marlin Builder was left ...

I suppose that many of you, like me as I write these lines, will be enjoying a well-deserved vacation and it is even probable that you have left your 3D printers behind. I have to confess that that was my intention, but just a few days before the friends of Monoprice sent me a rather curious 3D printer that completely ...

One of the most important manufacturers of electronics for 3D printing, specifically the company BigTreeTech , surprised us some time ago with a specific electronic board for the massive community of Ender 3 printer users. The name of this board was the SKR MINI E3 BTT and it was launched on the market in its initial version V1.2. This one ...
