Problems When 3D Printing Small Parts

It’s possible to encounter problems when 3D printing small parts. For the most part, 3D printers have a fixed nozzle size that will determine the resolution in the XY direction. These common nozzle sizes are 0.4mm or 0.5mm in diameter. This means that if you are planning on printing a 0.2mm thick wall with a […]

3D Print Layer Separation

3D print layer separation is one common problem everyone may encounter along their printing journey. Essentially, 3D printing is the process of building an object one layer at a time. Each consecutive layer is printed on top of the previous layer, creating the desired 3D model. However, for the final part to be solid and […]

How to Fix 3D Printing Under Extrusion

In this blog, we will dive into what 3D printing Under Extrusion is. If you start noticing gaps between adjacent extrusions of each layer, then you might be experiencing 3D printing under extrusion. A great way to detect 3D printing under extrusion is to print a small 20mm tall cube with at least 3 perimeter […]

Weak Infill 3D Print

Having a weak infill 3D print is a problem that can ruin your printing expectations. Structure, weight, and strength are crucial factors that come into play when trying to achieve the perfect print. Sometimes you will notice it at bare sight, and at others, you will think that everything went well, but on the inside, […]


Extruder Grinding Filament

Extruder grinding filament is a common issue related to the Driver Gears that most 3D printers have. These gears are used to grab the filament and push it forward or backward, depending on the driver’s direction. It has sharp teeth that allow it to bite into the filament to move it. If the 3D filament […]


3D Printer Clogged Nozzle

We know how frustrating it is to have a 3D printer clogged nozzle. It is something that most of us experienced. You start your printing process. Everything is running smoothly. Suddenly, you start hearing a knocking or clicking sound, pointing out that something went wrong. You approach the printer and realize that it got jammed. […]
