Pivoting Side Mounted Spool Holder for the Ender 3 & Pro

by BoothyBoothy

Inspired by the new Creality Printer I have remixed my Side Mounted Spool Holder with a Pivot\Hinge.

To be honest I still get a lot of use out of the original design but thought this might offer some further flexibility.

Ender 3 Stops 5 Seconds After Starting

by dennolan

I have 2 Ender 3's that are about 1 year old. I have used PLA for all my projects and have had a few small issues but have had easy fixes with the help of youtube. I have search far and wide on both youtube and forums and can't find anyone claiming to have had this issue.
I have been using Cura 4.0 from day one with both Ender 3s and run all g-code from a Sd card.
This problem was first noted when I attempted to run some bed leveling code that I have used many times before.
I select my file from SD card and bed and nozzle heats up properly and I hear the steppers kick in and move into home position.
At the point where the nozzle starts to move down to it's print position and is expected to lay its first line on the left side of the bed is when everything stops. Controller screen says Heating Done and freezes. I then have to reboot to get any response.
I will attempt to attached a 30 second video that explains what is happening better than words. Add file don't seem to be working.
Looking for some suggestions.

Z Axis issues

by quarinteen

I just purchased the ender 3 printer and I am having an issue when the printer gets to the 3rd or 4th layer the z axis does not seem to move up. I went into the Z axis movements and started at 0.00 and tried going .01 mm at a time and I cannot tell why its doing this. I have tried tightening and loosening the pulley wheels on the right side of the z axis bar and that did not help any. Any ideas on how to fix this? The print ends up just digging into the print or more accurately just spits out filament and buries its self.
