Dialing in your 3D Printer to get the settings right can be a long an arduous process. 3D printers have a lot of variables including: the material, temperature, ambient temperature, humidity, airflow, settings affecting all directions, backlash on parts, the way parts are fitted, electronics, firmware, flow rate and many more. Learning how they interact with each other and how changes over time can affect your performance can take time. Happily we’re a lot of people learning together! Many have uploaded test files and protocols to YouMagine in order to ensure that others can quickly improve the quality and repeatability of their prints.
