Buy a 3D printer can be an arduous task if you lack previous experience with these types of tools, and I am completely sure that hundreds of questions of all kinds will arise. You’ll start reading “weird” words like Nozzle, Marlin or Bowden that will be completely unknown to you, and it is certainly interesting to know them when you ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

Lately the new electronic boards of the company BigTreeTech (SKR V1.4 and SKR 1.4 Turbo) are enjoying quite a notoriety within the world of 3D printing. And it is not surprising, since they have perfectly understood the “Maker” movement and have adapted to the needs of users and potential clients. Having different sockets for all types of displays, specific BLTouch/3DTouch ...

These days ago Makerbase has surprised us with two updates for its quite important MKS TFT35 v2.0 screens and it is worth noting. If you are a user of this type of screens on your 3D printer, I recommend that you update to the latest firmware version available, in order to enjoy all the added improvements. New firmware can be ...
