Calibration is key to getting your printer working reliably and accurately.

This group is a place to discuss many of the aspects regarding calibrating your printer, as well as sharing files designed for printer calibration.

Feel free to start a topic about anything that is calibration related, i.e. best calibration techniques, build plate adhesive, max printer speed, or favorite calibration objects.

3d printing diagnosis

by gabe_murillo3

Hello! I am pretty new to 3D printing and recently purchased an ender 3 pro. Rather than scouring hours on yt to find my exact problem I wanted to see if y’all could give any help. My 3d prints lately have been a little more than acceptable but I want to get my prints as close to perfect as possible. Some consistent problem I am seeing are some of the layers don’t extrude right, warping, layers not being as strong as they should be, and the overall quality of the outside not being up to par. In the images are a print done of the handle for the ender and most of the issues seen are consistent throughout each print no matter what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Layer shift depending internal structure

by Alkerion

Hi !

I'm facing a strange behavior, the outer wall is shifting depending the internal structure.

This is happening to all of my printings and is not related to only the attached example.

Model and G-Code are OK.

Any idea what could be the reason ?

Any solution to fix that ?

X, Y and Z axis are calibrated, as well as the extruder.

The print quality is perfect but this strange shifting.

Layer height as no effect, same result with different layers height.

Print speed as no effect (I print between 40 to 60).

Temperature has no effect.

Nozzle changed, same result.

Changed belts and tried different tension, no effect

Changed X & Y motors, no effect

Any help appreciated

HELP PLEASE

by Cscollins87

Any advice is welcome! I'm very new to 3D printing. When I first started with my Ender3 my prints came out great. But now they have all started failing half way through the print. Please see image attached. I recently replaced my extruder with a metal one because the plastic one had a crack. I thought that was my issue but I'm still unable to print a full piece.
