Portland 3D Printing Lab : FDM troubleshooting methods
Microsoft Store

This is the first in a series of meetups focusing on troubleshooting methods for plastic filament extrusion printers like the MakerBot, PrintrBot, MendelMax, and others. We'll look at methods to fix problems with these printers, so bring any issues you need help with. We'll also talk about how to make printers more reliable and what to look for when starting a new project or buying a new printer.

Isaac Porras will kick off the first meeting with his experiences! Technical terms: FDM = Fused Deposition Modeling, the term for melting thermoplastic filament and extruding into various shapes. Copyrighted by Stratasys. FFF = Fused Filament Fabrication, the "open" term for the same process.
