    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    Update: so the abs prints failed and the nozzle kept clogging. I went to re-level the bed as I noticed when heated up it ran too hot. Noticed that the right gantry was uneven no matter what and was way too tight. Broke down and reassembled the printer and still at 80C on the bed and 270 on the...

    It could potentially be a partial clog. I’d give your hotend a good clean out just in case using either a cold pull and nylon plus acupuncture needle or if that fails a combo of heat gun acetone and/or blow torch amd wire brushes, make sure to get the fine particles. For bed adhesion if you have...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    A metric tone of nozzle clogs. Basically as abs sits idle in the enclosure it degrades and forms into unextrudeable mess. I have found that a deep clean and starting up the printer first worked wonders. Having an enclosure too fixed a lot of my problems. My CR-10 is relatively similar and I am...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    So. After much delay and many days of wrenching I have fixed my problems. I ran into a pretty nasty ABS clog and so I think it will be valuable to share what I have learned along the way and the many struggles. So first thing, for bed adhesion hair spray works wonders (went from barely adhering...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    So the shoulder print failed due to to an issue with my filament spool but I already have a solution set out (it’s because it’s a 5kg spool so usually manual feeding is necessary without a close roller) also printed out the final handplates. I decided to take the failure in stride and test out...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    Sorry for the necro but believe it or not I did not give up on the project. After nearly giving up and swearing off 3D printing I decided to randomly pull an all nighter and completely tore apart my 3D printer and reassembled it. Poured some hairspray on the print bed and the ABs printed...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    So. It’s been a long time since I last posted. First things first printing with ABS is hard. So hard in fact I had to order a shroud and mess with my printer for weeks to begin printing. Then the biggest pitfalls of all occurred. My laptop burned itself after a windows update and so I no longer...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    It’s a Standard CR-10. Personally if I was going to upgrade I would probably upgrade to a CR-10 S5. while I’m here I would also like to mention that after a day of trial and error I just decided to build an enclosure for my CR-10 to make printing with ABS a lot easier. 2 things I want on my...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    It is a CR-10. Great cosplay printer without breaking the bank and it’s fairly easy to learn on as well.

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    I was typing up my first thread update when you typed that but I am starting with the helmet first. I’m doing 30% scale prints first to get all the kinks out of printing the various pieces before doing a final print.

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    So this is older progress of mine but thought I’d show it. This is at 30% scale and is designed to figure out the best way to 3D print as well as to teach me how to print. Initially I had the infill after 10% and oriented it standing up. Due to the stubborn support and low infill this mini...

    1st Build. Halo Reach Air Assault build, 3D printed.

    So this is my first armor build but not my first attempt. I tried the old Cura route and sucked at it majorly. It took me a whole day to make a thigh and it was terrible. I tried the foam method and I just wasn’t having luck with it I worked really hard, and ultimately got sub par results and...
