Printer Guide| Print a Mini Ender-3 on Ender-3 V2: How to Design and Print 3D Model?

Ender-3 series 3D printer has been the contender in 3D printing market. For its affordability and practicability, Creality Ender-3 has been the must-pick-up for 3D printing enthusiasts, especially for those beginners, thus making Ender-3 such a token.
In April, Creality released Ender-3 V2, the upgraded version of the bestseller Ender-3. As soon as the V2 debut the market, it created a new Ender craze in 3D printing community. And… this week, some creative Creality members did an interesting thing---- 3D printing a mini Ender-3 on Ender-3 V2. The result turned out to be amazingly fantastic!

Normally, a large number of people requesting files when a 3D print is shown. How difficult is it to design the 3D models to print? How to self-design a 3D model to print? Here provides a basic guide!
Step 1: Set Up the Modeling Program
It is very important to adjust your program's settings before starting. You want to ensure that your units are proper so that your design is published at the proper range. Your grid lines ought to also be set up to ensure that you can conveniently develop as well as control your version based on the recommended devices.
In 3ds Max, it is really easy to change the devices setups. Merely go to Customize > Units configuration. There you can change which device category you wish to operate in, in addition to which system will certainly be the base unit. (The base device is which details system dimensions are based around. As an example, if I have my base system set to cm as well as I produce a 1 centimeters x 1 cm x 1 centimeters box, the box's dimension will certainly be revealed as 1 x 1 x 1. However if I alter my base systems to mm, package's size would certainly currently be shown as 10 x 10 x 10, even though the physical size of the box never transformed.).
To change the system units, which are the systems that leaders as well as grid lines are displayed in, press the "System system configuration" switch, situated at the top of the units setup screen. By default, it is readied to 1 unit = 1 inch. I like to change this to make sure that 1 device = 0.1. This is because each grid line represents 10 units to ensure that method each grid line comes to be 1 device. However feel free to alter it to whatever works finest for you. I advise keeping the device in the very same measuring system (statistics, generic, etc) as you are operating in.
Step 2: Plan Your Design
Preparation is an important step to take in the past starting any type of layout, whatever the objective of the design will certainly be. In 3d printing, 2 crucial concerns to consider are mini-mum wall thickness and information. These dimensions vary based on the printer utilized and the material made use of.
Mini-mum wall density is how thick the thinnest part of your item is. Your things has to be thick enough to publish in the preferred product. You likewise require to consider exactly how thick supporting parts of the design are.
Information level is likewise essential to think about due to the fact that 3d printers can just create information to a certain level. Just like regular printers, they do not have endless resolution. So you need to do some study regarding your 3d printer to establish how much information your things can have. For moving components you likewise need to take into comparison the clearance in between components, to ensure they are not accidentally integrated throughout the printing process.
All of this is based on what material you make a decision to use. Various materials have various mini-mum wall surface thicknesses as well as detail levels, in addition to clearance limits.
Information pertaining to the various materials readily available using Shapeways, along with requirements regarding clearance, information, and also wall thickness, can be discovered below and also right here. Also make sure to look into their neighborhood discussion forums for aid and suggestions.

Step 3: Create Your Model
This is the part where you actually create your model. Designs can be simple or complicated, it doesn't matter. Create whatever you want, it's your choice! Just do your best, and know that all that matters is that you are satisfied with the result.
Step 4: Prepare for Printing
In order to print properly, you must export your model into the proper file format. Shapeways supports .stl, .dae, .x3d, .x3db, wrl, zip and x3dv.
Exporting is a fairly simple process in most programs. Generally it simply involves going to File>Export in your 3d modeling program. In the new versions of 3DS Max, the file menu has been replaced with a large green 3DS Max logo in the top left of your screen. Click there and click Export.
Step 5: Print and Enjoy!
The final step is to print your model. Find your model's page by clicking "My Designs" in the main toolbar. Click on the title of your design to access its page. On your model's page you can select which material you would like to order it in, then press "Order Now" to add it to your cart. The price will change based on the material you choose.
Once your model is in your cart you can continue shopping (You can buy other users' models as well) or checkout. Once you checkout it will take around 10 days (their shipping estimates may have changed since my last order) for your model to arrive.

Some Information About Ender-3 V2
The Ender-3 V2 is equipped with Creality self-developed silent motherboard, thus making the V2 do much better in silent printing. The new self-developed silent motherboard enables to bring the printing noise down to 50dB, which is even quieter than a conversation in your bedroom, or TV drama in the living room.
The controller board is also responsible for parsing g-code files, regulating temperature, and moving motors, so it is such a core part of a 3D printer. The Creality silent board is a 32-bit board with the 2560 chipset, thus enabling it to have better performance in accurate printing and finer movements.
