What does a 3D printer print with?

He prints with plastic, which is in cartridges.

Filling the printer with such a cartridge is not difficult:

  • open the lid, remove the cap and put the cartridge face inward;
  • then you need to stick a plastic thread into a special hole. Do it efficiently, with feeling - the filament should be thrust as deep as possible into the print head of the printer.

That's it - stop working with your hands. Work your head. Go to the menu and select the desired settings.

Go brew coffee and read a scientific journal. Or have you already thrown it away?

After 1.5 hours, the model is ready. Make sure that it and the printer are cool before removing it, otherwise you will get burned. The cutter will help you to get the model.

Voila - the print form is ready!
