    Update update. Thanks to advice from you guys i managed to successfully print the nut and bolt test pieces. They're not 100% perfect but they're a good starting point. As per your advice I slowed print speed for the first layer to 15mm from 20 and upped the bed temp to 70 degrees. The filament...

    Which filament

    First up, I really appreciate your advice. I'm rapidly losing patience with it (the printer, not your help. Lol). Only two successful prints so far, a whistle and a benchy. I ran the chep gcode to level the bed in 5 points and used a 0.1 feeler gauge. Sometimes during heat up the filament coils...

    1. The standard carbo glass bed that comes with the ender 3 max. 2. 210 nozzle 60 bed 3. Didnt realise there was a setting to do this. 4. I found, and tried, the settings I found in this article. https://m.all3dp.com/2/prusaslicer-ender-3-best-profile/ 5. I have no idea when, why and what to set...

    Update. I ordered some amazon basics pla and its slowly dawning on me how little I know. Thus far I've only managed two successful prints and I have no idea how to correct my failures. I've levelled the bed using a feeler gauge to 0.1mm. What seems to be happening is one of two things. Either...

    Coax to HDMI?

    Does anyone know if such a converter exists? Basically the coax aerial socket on the back of a TV i have has become damaged (it moves!). Is there an inexpensive way to connect the coax aerial lead to one of the hdmi ports on the TV, allowing me to use the inbuilt freeview? Any help/advice...

    I ordered a bl touch with the max as I didn't trust myself :-)

    Which filament

    I ordered the ender 3 max. The ender 3 series isn't the best but it has a huge community so, knowing less than nothing, I thought it a better option than something like a sidewinder. That and the extra build area can only be a bonus.

    So, today I've taken the plunge and ordered a 3d printer from Creality. I know almost nothing about 3d printing, in fact I'm not even sure what I'm going to use it for, but I thought it time I dipped my toe in the water so yo speak. I dare say I'll be reading this forum intently, punctuating...

    takes a long time to start

    Does it turn over slower than normal or full speed and just won't fire? If you've never put a battery on the car check 2 things. First, that the previous owner put the correct spec battery on and second buy a drop tester (sub 30 quid) and do a load test. Check for bubbles in the fuel line...

    Purchase without a test drive?

    Dealer approved doesn't necessarily mean as much as you may think. A friend of mine bought from a Mercedes dealer and found this out the hard way, eventually coming to the conclusion he'd have been better off buying private and having an inspection done on the car first.

    Keep the suspension standard, or bilstein it if you must. I uprated and dropped mine and it ruined the car for everything except fast road/track time.

    Go Kart / ATV / Stuff built in your garage Thread

    I'm guessing the OP is using the obligatory Honda GX (or compatible) series of engine. I'd just like to add that when he's felling the need for more power, the GX390 is an excellent choice. Iirc it's almost a 50% hike in hp and torque over the GX270, but it might need some fettling to fit. Nice...

    I'd recommend you have the lsd lockup redone to Alpina spec. It really makes quite a difference .

    Android app recommendation needed

    I tried your suggestion earlier and first impressions are that it does exactly what's required. Thanks for your help :-)

    Android app recommendation needed

    Hi. I'm wondering if one of you guys can recommend an app to lock down an android tablet, restricting users to running only one application. The tablet is to be used as a POS paired with a card reader and ideally theres an app that would prevent staff from doing anything else but run the point...
