    3D Touch ABL installation questions

    I am just trying to make things a little easier and not have to level the bed all of the time. Plus as I stated above I got it for free and thought it would be a good upgrade to the normal manual bed leveling.

    3D Touch ABL installation questions

    Well, to tell you the truth I thought about doing this upgrade right after I got the printer but decided to wait. Had I not got the 3D Touch for free the other day I would not be thinking about installing it at all right now.

    3D Touch ABL installation questions

    Ok so I have decided to install a 3D touch ABL on my Ender 3 Pro. I have never been very good at working on electronics and had a few questions as the included instructions are not very good. Do I have to upgrade from the original control board to either the SKR Mini E3 V2.0 Control Board or...

    Just an update, I originally was going to place my printer in the garage, however after being told that was not a good idea I did some rearranging and found a home for it right beside my desk. The great thing about this is that it allows me to start a print at the beginning of the work day and...

    Awesome info, so if you could only buy one brand of PLA which one would it be? Speaking of filament and storage where do yall keep your printers, I was actually thinking about locating my printer in the garage but there is alot of humidity here in Florida and my garage is not climate controlled.

    Thanks I didn't realize until after I posted it that those were small spools I am actually going to order one of these rolls (Recommended printing temperature at 190-210) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ME75BGK/ref=dp_prsubs_3

    Ok Great, I was lookin gat some PLA as I think that is what I will tend to use more of. I see that there are different printer temperature ranges. I was reading that the ender 3 hot end can easily heat up to 280C but because of the it is not an all-metal hot-end, so the temperature is limited...

    I think that sounds like a good idea, was just wondering about this roll that came with the printer, would hate to throw away a almost full roll.

    Just wanted to say thanks. I have placed the order and hopefully will be printing great soon. Ok another question, When I purchased this printer it came with a roll of Paramount 3D PLA 1.75KG filament, I have seen a lot of people talking about keeping the filament fry and moisture free. Is...

    That is what i intended on doing, it was just a better deal getting it all in one bundle.

    That is what I got from all of the reading and video watching I have been doing but just wanted to make sure. Ok so I think that I am now just going to order these two kits Nozzles, Capricorn tubing, Black metal extruder and extra fittings...

    Ok thanks, is there really a need of all of the different size nozzles. From what I understand the .04 is pretty standard and should be fine for 1.75mm filaments.

    Jmilcher Thanks for all the information you have provided. I have already purchased a glass bed but think that i will wait to put it on till I can get the bed dialed in and get a couple prints under my belt. I will get some extra nozzles and the Capricorn tubing , What are the silicone socks...

    IndyColtsFan thanks. The biggest reason that I have thought about upgrading the board is that everywhere I turn I keep seeing that the printer does not have thermal runaway protection. Is there a particular nozzle you buy and place that you buy from? Where do you get your silicone socks?

    Right now the only other thing that I have thought about adding is ABL. So knowing that I want to add ABL. Which card and ABL would be easier for a newbie?

    I have already purchased the Ender 3 Pro so now the only questions is which 32 bit board to get. do both the BigTreeTech SKR Mini 2.0 OR Creality 4.2.7 have thermal runaway protection?

    well I purchased this as a starter, to get my feet wet, but after purchasing I started finding alot of people talking about needing to upgrade the board because the 8 bit board does not have of thermal protection

    I saw that board when I was looking but think its kind a out of my range right now if I want to do other upgrades as well.

    Ok so I am new to the world of 3D printing. I saw something that I wanted and decided to try and make it instead of buying it. So I have picked up Ender 3 Pro that has had very little use. I was just thinking I was ask the group is there are any upgrades that I should do right off the start...
