Frequently asked Questions

Can I ask you a question?

Yes. Of course. I usually need a few days to answer. If I have one. :). Hint: If your question is about a problem in your project, please describe your problem as precise as possible. Sometimes you will find a solution during this process. In this case I will respond with β€œquak” and point you to Rubber Duck Debugging.

What 3D printer do you have?

I have two Tevo Tarantula, which I ordered from Aliexpress.

I have the standard model, no auto bed leveling, no large bed, no flex extruder (Printing TPU also works with the standard extruder, just push the PTFE tube close to the gear). I have a dual extruder, but only used it a few times.

The only extra I bought was a β€œ200x200mm 3mm borosilicate glass” fixed with kapton tape on top of the heatbed, a fused main power switch, and a 30x30mm layer fan. The rest is printed and is in my collection on thingiverse: Tevo Tarantula Improvements.

What software do you use?

I use only Open Source Software to create my work. This way you can use the same tools for free and without limitations to modify or recreate the same things.
