Q&A Test topic

Recommended Posts

I have been reading through quite some posts now, and i see alot of the same questions.

Isn't it much easier for the Community if someone can make a very big alphabetical Q&A post with the most commmon questions, and maybe include some of the very usefull posts i found in the forum. There are so many questions, and so many easy answers and or tips and tricks, if they can be put together for starters, that would make it so much easier.

For example i even noticed that turning my model 180 degrees is a solution for my problem, doesnt make sense to me, but it seems to work.

And is it possible to have a few pictures of prints which can show people what some settings can do?

 

Also maybe there is a guide on how to properly setup your UM kit.

On the forum i saw a few good ways to level your printing bed, which is easier then how it is described in the manual.

Yes! I think that would be great. There should be a wiki. Half of the answers on this forum should point to a wiki with the answers edited over and over until they are prefect. With diagrams. And pictures. And corrections.

However, I'm sure for every person who posts a question there are 10 who didn't ask - they googled their question, found the answer on these forums and never posted anything. So when I answer the same question the 4th time I'm helping 40 people, not 1. Also people have the same problem but think of it differently so when they google they don't see the answer and end up posting the question in a different way. This helps other people who think that way.

Here's my attempt to do .01% of what you describe:

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
