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 ...

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 ...

About a month ago we published an interesting article about The 10 most interesting Octoprint plugins (and how to install them). Among all the plugins that we mentioned in this article, there was one quite interesting that allowed us to visualize a 3D mesh of our printing surface. Its name was Bed Level Visualizer and it was certainly illustrative when ...

Recently a colleague sent me a BLTouch / 3DTouch sensor from the Geeetech brand. I usually use optical infrared sensors for my printers, but I wanted to try the BLTouch sensors since none had fallen yet by my hands. So I got down to work for Configure BLTouch with BabyStepping in the last Marlin available today and satiate my curiosity. ...

Introduction to Warping Warping is one of the biggest problems, and probably challenges, that any Maker has to face when manufacturing or printing parts with their 3D printer. Its meaning comes from the English homonym “Warping” and means buckling or distortion of an element. Applied to the context of 3D printing Warping would mean the deformation or contraction of it ...

Hollow 3D objects with ChiTuBox Hollowing 3D objects with ChiTuBox is a very easy and fast process. Today, there are other programs such as Meshmixer or PreForm that can help you with this task. But as we have commented in other articles about ChiTuBox, using a software for slicer and another for “retouching” is not a productive way to work. ...
