Frequently Asked Questions

1) Filament not extruding properly?

A: Check the type of filament you’re working with and set the proper extruder temperature based on the filament type and heated build platform if applicable; trial and error.
Rule of thumb is to set the extruder temperature to the highest temperature for the specific filament, then decrease the temperature by 5°C until properly extruded. Please note this will vary with each 3D printer.

2) How do I store my filament?

A: Most filaments tend to absorb moisture from the air; because of this your filament can become brittle and slowly degrade the quality. It’s recommended to keep unused filament and store it in a storage container or zip lock bag with a desiccant.

3) Won’t the print stick to the build platform?

A: First, review FAQ #1. Second, for PLA it’s recommended to use blue painters tape and ABS it’s recommended to use kapton tape. If printing with ABS and the print will still not stick to the build platform you can use “*ABS Sludge” a little goes a long way. You can use this on the build platform on top of kapton tape.

*When creating the ABS sludge (mixture of acetone and ABS scraps), create the mixture in well ventilated area preferably outside. Using this sludge will make the print stick to the build platform really well and may be difficult to remove the print, use at your own discretion and a plastic scraper will come in handy.

3D Printing Allows for Unprecedented Accuracy in Facial Reconstructive Surgery – 3D Printer


3D printing technology has helped to reconstruct the facial injuries that a 29-year-old motorcycle accident victim sustained.

Stephen Power, from Cardiff, Wales, is possibly the first trauma patient to have 3D printing used at every stage during surgery, in which a reconstructive procedure was used to restore facial features.

In a motorcycle accident in 2012, Power suffered severe injuries that included breaking both of his arms, his right leg, as well as severe eye socket, cheek, and upper jaw injuries.

The accident left him in the hospital for four months.

“I can’t remember the accident – I remember five minutes before and then waking up in the hospital a few months later,” Power said.

Thanks to 3D printing technology, though, Power was able to undergo an eight-hour operation that allowed doctors to rebuild his face.

The surgical team used scanned 3D images of his face to design guides to cut and position bones, as well as titanium implants. 3D printing allowed for unprecedented accuracy in the surgery.

“It was a three dimensional exercise,” said consultant maxillofacial surgeon Adrian Sugar. “We had virtual and physical model planning for each stage of the operation. It made sense to plan it in three dimensions and that is why 3D printing came in – and successive 3D printing, as at every different stage we had a model.”

“Without this technology, you have to guess where everything goes. With 3D printing, we are far more precise.”

Power’s new face is a testament to the amazing things that 3D printing technology is capable of when combined with modern medical technology.

“I won’t have to hide my face away and my confidence will be back,” said Power. “I’ll be able to do everyday things – go and see people, walk in the streets, just go to any public areas.”
