How do you fix a bad filament?

Here are two ways of using heat to dry the PLA filament.

  1. Heating The PLA Filament Roll. In some instances, heating the entire filament roll may reverse its brittleness.
  2. Increase The Nozzle Temperature. If you’re having issues with brittle 3D prints, you could increase the temperature of the nozzle.

Can Ender 3 V2 print multiple colors?

Deriving some parts from other makers in the open-source community, Kenneth Shotswell (shotsy) put together a functional system that produces multicolor parts. Using a three-into-one hot end and a custom mount and cooling system, it allows Ender 3 printers to print (or mix) three separate colors in a single print!

What are the most common problems with creality Ender 3?

Under-extrusion Under-extrusion is by far the most common problem faced by Ender 3 users. You can identify an under-extrusion problem by evaluating your test prints. If the filament looks thin and/or has portions missing, it is likely that your printer is not extruding the filament at an even rate.

Why is my creality Ender 3 printer not printing?

Though this is unlikely to be an issue for brand-new machines, if you have used your Ender 3 printer several times without problems and are suddenly facing extrusion problems, it is very likely that a clogged nozzle is to blame. Run a short test print and carefully watch the filament as it is extruded.

Are there any community modifications for Ender 3?

There are some community modifications available as far as I know. Additionally, check if everything is tight enough, check your Z screw, if it can move smoothly over the whole length. A friend of mine has an Ender 3, so I know there are a lot of problems, which needs some tinkering and where you need to make additional modifications.

What to do if your 3D printing bar wobbles?

The three wheels can be tightened to provide more support to your printing bar. You could also check the frame, to make sure that you have no wobble and that it sits flat and stable on your table. Pretty simple to check and fix. Sign up for a new account in our community.
