Do you NEED to Upgrade or Modify Your Artillery (Or Any) 3D Printer? Most Of The Time, No.

3DN_Article_Nomods
Your 3D printer is very capable of awesome prints out of the box. It's true.  Mechanical, Art, High Detail, and just about anything else you can think of.   New users, while waiting for their sparkly new printer to arrive usually pour over internet resources hoping to arm themselves with the right information and even more tend to try to soak up as much useful information about 3D printing in general before they decided to jump in. Thats how it's supposed to be. The thing that people dont consider is there will be good information, and well, bad information. How do you know the difference? Well, consider what 3D printers are. They are tools. Precision TOOLS. Not toys, not casual hobby craft sports like glue guns or sticker albums. Another fact is, this is 2020 and the 3D printer technology has been around mainstream for a number of years now and, most manufacturers have things sorted out...

Magnetics & Buildplates. Don't Get Ripped Off. Comprehensive Magnet Learning.

Magnetics & Buildplates. Don't Get Ripped Off. Comprehensive Magnet Learning.
Science, yo. Lately I've been asked (and seen some shady marketing shit, who's surprised?) about magnetics by the people wishing to build their own buildplates and include the right magnets for the job. You can get involved in the discussion and design practices by joining in on our forums and if you are already here you're in the right place... Making your own isn't difficult, just like anything else though there are considerations when doing so or buying a system from a 3rd party. Our own plates for the Artillery 3D printers use all of this culminated experience, just to be clear I don't take making something that works well lightly and want to give everyone choices. The ones you make are up to you, just be informed. Learning something is what this is supposed to be about right? Our plates for Artillery and other printers will be available soon. Keep up to date...

Great news for those using the factory default firmwares - you can now drop in a spiffy new GUI that matches the style of our released Advanced Marlin Firmwares! It's as easy as dropping the files on a SD card, and booting up your printer.

What's this? Requests on previous shows brought about a few color options - variants to "DiBlue" for those that like to trick their printers out with various color vanity mods.They are all almost finished (300 buttons X 4 firmware flavors y'all, gimme a break, I'm one guy!) I want to point out for my tastes, Im going to pimp out a machine in each color and swag them with accenting LED's. The DiBlue looks sweet in the dark,...

Artillery Advanced Firmwares GUI Enhancement UPDATE!

ADVANCED_GUI_Update
This is just a GUI enhancement I felt I wanted to do to finalize the look of the theme. I originally thought the button lines would be more prominent in the original but the LCD's brightness and saturation felt otherwise. I don't like being told no. Right now there are just enhancements for the Advanced 1.1.9 Versions for the X1 and Genius. The rest will be announced as I roll them out. They can be found HERE Its real simple to update, both archives are updated in the files area and all you need do is copy the TFT Firmware files to a 16GB (or less) Micro SD card, insert it into the printer and turn it on. Wait until it finishes, turn off the printer, remove the SD card, and reboot. You may wish to check the file system after doing so as it sets to "Micro SD" after flashing so you...
