As we all know that the 3D printing is an awesome technology, but at the same time you’ll experience a steep learning curve that most of us don’t know. Here, in this article, I’ve compiled top tips to help you to get the most out of your 3D printer and develop a practical, yet stylish product.

Be Familiar With Your 3D Printer First

It’s a fact that the beginning is always difficult. So, the first and the foremost thing that you need to do is to check out all the different settings. You can start it by printing different shapes by using different settings to get to know more about your printer. There are several tests that you can do online to print out incredible designs with your 3D printer. It’s a perfect way to learn how to use a 3D printer to create stylish products.
Moreover, you can also join the Rep Rap Community, which is particularly devoted to teaching people how 3D printer works and how you can build 3D designs. If you want to create 3D printer by yourself, then PrintrBot is the best option.

Spend Time To Learn More About Designing Your Models Right Away

At the outset, it’s quite difficult for the beginner to use the 3D design software. So, it’s good to design your own models from the start in order to realize the potential of your printer. I know, it’s fun to use the softwares to create artistic models, but they aren’t yours, but soon it will start tweaking you. In order to get over it, you’ll start from the scratch with another creative idea. If you want to learn more about making 3D models, you can use a free and wonderful option such as TinkerCAD. If you already had CAD experience, then you can use another alternative like Blender for greater results.

Learn From Others By Joining Online 3D Print Communities

It’s always a good idea to engage with professional and experienced peeps out there to get an advice. In this way, you’ll make your 3D printing journey more colorful and it also saves you a lot of time. Although, there are a number of 3D printing specific forums, but we recommend you to join 3D Print Board and 3D Hubs Talk to get the most out of your printing experience. You can also join a group on LinkedIn by the name of ‘3D Mastermind LinkedIn Group’ to get to know about people’s real life experiences.

The 45° Rule

When it comes to the 45°, it’s a rule of thumb as your printer settings (material, speed, temperature and print volume) will have an effect on this. You can apply it while designing for FDM printing as it helps you to efface the need for support and as a result, greatly improves surface finishing.

Exploring The World Of Exotic Filaments
When it comes to the world of 3D printing, things have changed a lot. Previously, we were just limited to the ABS and PLA. However, over the past few years a number of new filament creators have emerged. They can be able to make new materials in addition to merging existing ones with all types of non-plastic particles.

Try To Have A Power Backup

It’s significant because if the power went out when you’re in the middle of one of your prints; you’ll definitely get frustrated. It will ruin your entire print. So, it’s always good to have a power backup for your 3D printer so you don’t need to worry about the power outages out there and you won’t be losing the print that you’re designing from a couple of hours.
