Re: Tom you gotta do an extensive bed level guide/video

I'm new to 3d printing, but I've not had any bed leveling problems. Here's how I do it. My Tevo Black Widow, running Marlin firmware, has a pretty large build plate on springs. I have a BL Touch sensor and use Octoprint. These two things make life MUCH easier. If you don't have them, consider instal...

Re: Favourite filament?

Im almost only use eSun PETg and PLA + Preminum. Me too. I'm brand new to 3D printing and started out with eSun PLA Plus (also known as PLA-Pro) just by luck. I also purchased some of their PTEg. I expected the PLA to be easy to use, but brittle and not very strong. I was WRONG. The eSun PLA Plus i...

Re: Store filament easy and dry - Tom's way

I just finished two "Tom Style" dry boxes and here's what I learned. I first tried using a cheap file storage box; however, the bottom was not well supported and it was 5 or 6 mm above the surface so that using any kind of spool holder which sits on the bottom of the box (as opposed to those which h...

Re: Softare/Firmware advice for complet novice

Yes, it does help. Since I made my post, I've been doing more reading and I think I'll be fine with the Marlin firmware provided by TEVO along with Cura as a starting point. And, perhaps that will carry me a long way into the future. I just didn't want to start out with something which I would quick...

Softare/Firmware advice for complet novice

I’m a complete novice when it comes to 3D printers and although I wouldn’t call myself a computer Guru, I do remember starting with a stack of punch cards, if anyone remembers them. And I’ve done a lot of CAD drawing and fabrication over the years but not on a professional level. I ordered my Tevo B...

Re: Prometheus System on i3 MK2S?

I'm brand new to 3D printing and I'm researching both hardware and software. I saw this thread while searching for information on the Prometheus extruder. After watching Tom's video, I expected this device to be the best thing since sliced bread. But that video was made a year and a half ago, so it'...
