Ender 3 under extrusion

by Superguy728

I'm being driven up a wall, I've tried different slicers, different slicer settings, I've changed the bowden tube, I've tightened the belts, changed the nozzle, tried different filaments but nothing, so I'm come here looking for other ideas, thank you.

How to take care of magnetic bed?

by tartazesliwkami

How do you take care of your magnetic bed? Do you wash it? With what and how often? Do you use acetone or hairspray with it? After 3 almost perfect prints I have some sticking issues and I think it might be connected with bad bed cleaning. Any pieces of advice will be highly appreciated!

Ender 3 camera

by TheDarkSun

Hi all,
I am looking for a camera that I can put next to my Ender 3 and have it record prints. I know lots of people use GoPros but they are quite expensive and I am looking for something that is around £30. I don't really mind if it mounts to the bed or not but if it does then that would be helpful. Does anyone know of anything that I could use?
Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: If I could view it from my phone using WiFi that would also be really great.

Thin top layers

by SavedDoughnut16

So my ender 3 prints are coming out amazing after a few mods. However some top layers( especially flat ones) come out pretty thin and not even attached to the rest of the print. I didn't really ever have this problem before so maybe I accidentally clicked something in s3d but I'm not sure what it could be. The bottom layers come out perfect though.

Thoughts on bed leveling

by derWaldschrat

I had some thoughts (and a trivial experiment) about bed leveling that may help you.

TL;DR: Don't auto-home and level at Z=0, instead auto-home, set Z to 0.1 mm, then bed level with a sheet of paper. Better even use a feeler gauge.

If you already have a reliable bed leveling procedure, stick to it. But you may still want to read my rumblings.

Anyway, here we go: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10vsq-cN722SfCyX4edZYfuxIOAc-E5zJBaB7jsbepQI

Stringing on Ender 3

by Mostor

I believe i’ve tried to post this once before but have not been able to find t. If this is a duplicate, I am sorry. I recently purchased my Creality Ender3 and have been trying to fine tune the settings. My first couple of prints were absolutely terrible but i have fixed most of the problems. One problem i am having is stringing though. I have my current settings at 60 mm/s for 15 mm. I am printint at 185 degrees with a .4 nozzle. I did a Makers Muse Torture Lattice Cube and it turned out decent all except for the stringing. I will have oictures of this cube and previous prints linked. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
