Essential Mods to Upgrade Your 3D Printer (Maker Select v2) - Let's Print 3D

When I first purchased my Maker Select, I already had a hefty list of mods planned before it even arrived. I spent weeks researching every ounce of information available, prepared to replace or upgrade any parts that would help improve my prints. While these machines have fantastic results right out of the box, a few changes can create even better prints that rival machines several times their cost.

In a nutshell, the Maker Select is essentially a low cost foundation that can be further improved over time. A quick trip to the hardware store is often all that it takes, where much of what you will need can be printed off that very machine! There is a wide range of part designs readily available, including everything from belt tensioners to cooling fan shrouds. We will look at the most important mods that every new owner should be made aware of, explain the reasoning for it and where to find more information

Extruder PID Tuning

The default heat manager for the i3 printer is using the DeadTime method which usually works pretty well. I found that I had to change the PID Gain / Deadtime setting to 3 to get better results without the over an undershooting of the temperatures.

The heat manager can also be changed to use PID which can yield better results after running the PID Tuning command for a set temperature. (PID is a control loop feedback mechanism with many uses. A general description of PID is beyond the scope of this article. ) Tune the PID control system to the temperature you most frequently use. If your printing temperature varies greatly (for example, you print low temperature PLA as well as higher temperature ABS or PETG), you may find that tuning somewhere in the middle will work but you will likely have to re-run the tune for the new temperature each time you make a drastic change.

Changing and tuning the PID control is a means of addressing unstable temperatures. If you do not have temperature fluctuations, then there is no need to do this. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

Bio-Printers Are Churning out Living Fixes to Broken Spines | WIRED
Researchers say that bio-printed tissue can be used to test the effects of drug treatments, for example, with an eventual goal of printing entire organs that can be grown and then transplanted into a patient. The latest step toward 3D-printed replacements of failed human parts comes from a team at UC San Diego. It has bio-printed a section of spinal cord that can be custom-fit into a patient’s injury.

Print Quality Troubleshooting Guide | Simplify3D Software
This guide is a great place to start if you are trying to improve the quality of your 3D printed parts. We have compiled an extensive list of the most common 3D printing issues along with the software settings that you can use to solve them. Best of all, the guide uses a large collection of real-world images to make each issue easy to identify when examining your own 3D printed parts. So let’s get started!

Thumbnail Overview

Use the thumbnails below to identify the picture that most closely represents the quality issue that you are seeing in your own 3D printed parts. You can click on the thumbnail to jump that that portion of the guide for immediate recommendations on how to resolve the issue.

Ikea Anet A8 3D printer enclosure
Introduction I have recently been trying to print ABS with my Anet A8. My printer is in my garage and whilst it's attached to the house it does get quite cold in there in the winter and this gave me issue when printing ABS. All my inspiration came from the following post: https://makerhacks.com/ikea-3dprinter-enclosure/ Parts: IKEA…
