Would it be beneficial to use a 3D printing service (In my case, provided by a public library) before investing in my own 3D printer? what is STL?

Great Job Adam. I am printing my first test object on my new Ender 3 as I watch your video. Thank you for the great information. I am also an RC guy with fixed-wing and multi-rotor aircraft. One of the things I wanted to do is be able to make parts for my aircraft when needed. Look forward to more videos.

Thank you so much for this video, the time stamps, and the information! I've had a 3d printer for a couple months now but it's been very intimidating/overwhelming to start and this was the best and most helpful Beginner video out there. The day I watched your video this week I fired up my Chiron, tried some files and ended up making the makerbot figurine on the first try!

Great video. I'm going to be getting my first 3d printer in the next few months. I'm actually looking at an Ender 5 (maybe the pro model depending on how pricing is when I'm ready). I like the design where the print bed just moves in the Z axis as there aren't moving parts stuck where it would be hard for me to get to them. I definitely want a printer with a lot of support and ability to upgrade so one of the Ender models seems ideal.

Nice to hear from someone who isn't trying to be a "guru", and still remembers all the questions a beginner has. I've also waited...can't count the number of brackets and stuff I've made over the years using other methods. Gonna make the leap. Blender is also a great program.

Thank you for your very imformative video As a novice to 3D printing I have found it all so confusing, even to the extent of doubting that I would be able to do, but now I have listened to your very helpful video, I feel I can now start Please keep more videos coming for those of us who are not engineers, but want to do things (especially craft people like me!), try new things out.

Your video has made it all understandable and I feel more confident to have a go. 1 question..... is the cr-10 v3 just a newer model as this is what I am looking at?

3d printer is amazing ... my first is creality ender 5 plus ... nothing worked after the assembly, after a bit of experimenting and searching online, I figured out the error myself, took a couple of days ... now it is completely set up and uses Cura and my own designed profile. ..

Just took delivery on my first printer. It's a Sermoon D1 and I did the first print of the tug boat with very good result right out of the box. Isn't much to go wrong when downloading part file, then running through the slicer all very straight forward. I have very little experience with CAD of that its all 2D, Trying to become literate in FreeCad so I can chop 3D models from the web into more friendly printer files. MY PROBLEM. I want to print a human skull and a Pacaras skull for visual comparison. I found, understandably. printing such things as a stalactite is difficult without supports. Its counterpart, the stalagmite is easy. MY SOLUTION Remove the jaw to print separately. (1/2 of the problem) Then cut off the top of the skull to make two parts with a flat surface. Also adding four pockets on each for dowels (also printed separately) to mate the two halves back together. I can see editing a 3D drafted part somewhat straightforward with skills to be acquired, but I can't imagine how one would edit a wire frame or point cloud model. Perhaps one could just "erase" with digital pen or create a plane or sphere to cut out parts. Well, wish me luck, I'm going back to my Homer Simpson style of editing. BTW great video. I'll be looking for more.
