When we travel the world to show off our 3D printers, people often ask us not only about our machines but also about the 3D printed models we usually bring with us. And, please excuse us, but we would like to pat ourselves on the back a little bit: those are some really cool prints! […]

How do you 3D print something? Well, that’s easy: get an STL model, load it into a slicer app, generate a G-code, upload it to a 3D printer and that’s it! But what if you can’t find the desired STL file in an online repository. What if you need a custom-made model? Today, we’ll look […]

The default nozzle diameter for most of today’s printers is 0.4 mm, and E3D’s hotends used in Original Prusa i3 MK3 and MK2/S printers are no different. Changing the nozzle takes just a few minutes and it can bring a number of benefits. According to our recent survey (we will introduce you more detailed results […]

The main focus of our previous articles was often the pre-production or production phase of 3D printing process: how to cut an object, how to print supports or how to fix errors in 3D models. One could get the idea that everything ends when a printer finishes printing and the final product is a simple […]

The core of FDM technology is extruding melted plastic, where each layer is laid on top of the previous, already cooled down and solidified layer. There has to be something to lay the new layer on, otherwise the plastic just drips down and sticks to whatever it hits on the way. A 3d printer is capable […]

A 3D printed arm designed to look like a part of Buzz Lightyear’s spacesuit brought joy to the life of little Tommy Dengel and his family. Charles University in Prague bought our Original Prusa i3 printer to create custom-made and cost-efficient tools for research. Tens of thousands of our printers continue to extrude filament every […]

3D printing is quickly becoming a widely accessible and user-friendly technology. Despite this fact, some users (especially beginners) can sometimes run into various difficulties during the printing process. Such problems are usually caused by improper configuration or just by a random accident. We have compiled a list of five more-or-less common issues you can theoretically […]

Maybe you have already seen some of those fancy enclosures people build for their printers. How do they work? And do they work? Today, we will shed some light on this matter! Plus, we are going to dive into patent wars and explain why not all printers come with an enclosure. To top things off, […]

Are you perhaps wondering, what kind of cool gadget you should print on your shiny new 3D printer? Definitely something useful! How about something that can help you to get rid of the ever-returning mess on your work desk? After seeing the success of our previous article about extruder visualizers, we have decided to prepare […]
